Also have transfers over networks with about 60MB/s (HDs starts to become bottleneck). However then i bought some cable a year and half ago to wire extra room and even tho it was cat5e it does not do 1gbit speeds. So at the end i ended up "useing" some extra cable that i had in the wall from the "old" days and used that. So if you are sure all hardware supports 1gbit, try to change cables!
Well, i found some info on asus forum last night which is pointing to that its something wrong in the "Asus rampage II gene" motherboard.
I have that board, and it uses Realtek 8111C network chip.
My computer and server are connected with cat6 cabels to my netgear gs105 gigabit switch.
Everything did worked
for some time ago, and I dont exactly know when the speed dropped.
It could be a bios upgrade
It could be a windows update (using Windows 7 ultimate, x64)
It could be the motherbord, I changed to Asus rampage II gene board when my older DFi board burned up.
