Windows 2003 File Shares Speed up

I have a windows 2003 file server with a md1000 storage connected with perc 5/e
We get about 250mb/s read/write locally
when we test over the network from a client machine, i'm getting something like 45mb/s reads and 20mb/s write.
is there a way to speed up my file server on windows 2003?

thanks.

'Easiest' thing to do is upgrade to Windows 2008 or newer and Windows Vista or newer. The SMBv2 protocol does a lot better in terms of network throughput over both LAN and WAN.

update all your firmware on the PERC and MD1000.  What kind of switches do you have in place
