Windows 7: win7 ad hoc wireless connection to slow?

win7 ad hoc wireless connection to slow?

computer #1: usb wlan card 802.11n wpa2 pers support.
computer #2: built in wlan card 802.11n wpa2 pers suppot.
Latest wlan Windows 7 drivers installed.
zonealarm free firewall installed.
Distance computers less than 10feet.

Goal: Fast ad hoc network. File read and write sharing, sync files.

So far: Computers are connected with wpa2pers.
Homegroups are shown/running on both computers.
Writing on "other" computer's homegroup seems not to work.
Reading seems to work.

Main question: How fast is your wpa2 ad hoc wireless connection?
Mine is never much faster than about 1mbs.
For many tasks it makes the network useless. Shouldn't it be
much faster?
I'm not skilled on the network settings, they may be totally wrong.
But reading tutorials hasn't shown me any solution.

I also created an ad hoc lan cable network.
First it ran very fast, 20-30mbs.
Next time I cable connected the computers, speed had dropped to about 1mbs.

Can speeds of the networks be increased?
Can I follow a network settings checklist?

Thanks for answering.
