i have two PC's set up running ubuntu. My main pc is 8.10, my audio pc is 7.10. the machines are connected on a wireless g network.

When downloading from the Internet on either machine the indicated download speeds are around 220kbps.

however, i downloaded the 8.10 iso from a torrent onto my audio pc but i am having trouble burning the disc - keeps saying disc burn successful but the disc is still empty? using brassero - so i wanted to transfer the file to my main pc and burn the disc from that. only the transfer speed between them was on 40kbps and it was going ot take 5 hours to transfer the file. I would be quicker downloading the torrent again!

any ideas whats causing this or how to speed it up?
