Is 4MB/s a good LAN speed?

I tried SSH, HTTP, and Samba between different desktop computers and our server. There was not a big difference between different protocols.

The network and server are generally quiet. The systems are connected via a 10/100 network. The server has a 10/100/1000 and the desktops 10/100.

4mb/s isnt partyicularly good - especailly for a small network. Is the switch/hub capable of 100mb/s?

I agree that 4mb/s isnt real good. 7-9 mb/s would be the expected range.

What type of hardware is running on the server and clients?

The switch a low-end, unmanaged is 100/10.

The server is a Dell PowerEdge 400SC with an Intel Corp. 82540EM Gigabit Ethernet Controller running Linux 2.4 (Trustix 2.2).

One of the clients is a Compaq Presario 700MHZ with an SMC EZ Card 10/100 (SMC1211TX) running Windows 2000.

Another client is a Pentium II 400MHZ (?) with a 100 NIC and Linux 2.6.

There are some 30 computers on the network. Most (including the test machines) are connected to this same switch. We also have other switches and even a wireless VPN to a nearby building. However, the extended network shouldn't affect the speed (AFAIK) because the test machines are on the same switch.
