For me it was a PEBKAC applied to network...
PEBCAS : Problem Exists Between Client And Server
When I upgraded my server I also add some ram modules and do I exchanged some cable...
My bug was a deffective RJ45 cable ... I can notice before because it was plugged on another read-only machine.
The only thing I have done before changing the cable is to downgrade my network driver realtek r8169 to r8168, by adding a new package repository taht old propretary firmware (nonfree)(debian repo, since I have migrate to debian)
To check if your network adapter is a realtek, you can type this :
Good Luck !Code:lspci | grep r816
I've solved this issue for myself. I did fresh installs on an old Dell Vostro. 12.04 then 11.xx then 10.xx and all slowed down my wireless transfer dramatically (see posts above).
After a lot of screwing around I suspected the network card driver. The answer is that the Vostro has a low power version of the Broadcom wifi chip... from lspci .
Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g LP-PHY (rev 01)
I suspected that Ubuntu was installing the driver for the regular chip. The regular chip driver can be installed with ...
sudo apt-get install firmware-b43-installer
Removing the Ubuntu installed driver and using the above command line gave the same painfully slow network but ... installing the low power version ...
sudo apt-get install firmware-b43-lpphy-installer
has my network running at its usual fast pace.
Some of us are having related issues. Have you tried from a Windows client to the linux samba server?
Wuhu, it just automitically started working. Must have been an update. Anyone else who can confirm this?
i have the same issue.
win7 network speed perfect, ubuntu 12.04 very slow speed to same pc
Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8111/8168B PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet controller (rev 06)
and I have changed driver to R8168 driver but still get transfers under 100kB/s
ubuntu 12.04 64 bit btw - still can't change my user details!
Even stranger - sme network to another pc 86 MB file 2 seconds to the other pc 14 mins for the same file yet in windows 2 seconds.
Could this be a pc specific issue to the one machine perhaps?

same identical problem here with ubuntu 12 and lspci:
04:00.0 Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8111/8168B PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet controller (rev 01)
if I upload a file from win to linux I get 100-200kb/s which is SLOW, but if I do the other way around I'm 30kb/s which is total crap.
must find a fix asap, cannot have a LAN like this
