Typical Network Performance

I have a 100 mbps (12,207 KiB/s) home LAN in full-duplex.  A 1 MiB file 
transfers at 146.7 KiB/s via wput.  The same file transfers at 91.34 
KiB/s via samba.  That's less than 1% of available transfer rate.  Seems 
like my transfers are slow.  I do better than that when installing via 
the internet.

Does the FTP performance compared to available bandwidth seem right?  Is 
the relative performance of samba to FTP right?  I read a couple quick 
links on the net which said, "It's complicated."
