Typical Network Performance

Seems like someone else got their question answered, but I was able to 
make use of the tips that were provided.  win-win.  Thanks for the pointers.

By process of elimination (swap cables, swap ports, try different host 
pairs) I was able to discover that a single server on my home LAN was 
getting about 1.6% performance compared to other servers getting 94% 
performance using the 'dd if=/dev/zero bs=1M count=1 | nc servername 
2000' technique. netstat -I on the errant server reports no errors.

What would be the next step to figuring out why this host's network 
performance is slow?
