Home networking with SSHFS?

I connected my desktop and notebook (no routers,no hubs just using a cable about 3 feet long) and used
SSHFS for mount.But the data transfer rate is really slow,its about 34
KB/s,eventhough both machines have fast Ethernet cards (100MBps).
How can i get more higher data transferring?? (i tried fish:// too but
it gives the same rate)


heres 'lspci' output on my desktop:
02:02.0 Ethernet controller: 3Com Corporation 3c905C-TX/TX-M [Tornado]
(rev 74)

and on my notebook:

You used a cross-over cable or cross-over adapter, right? If not, and one of your NICs isn't autodetecting the cable, then there appears to be another network connection in use (maybe wireless)?

One way working!

Yeap I guess It is a cross-over cable.I tried with straigh cable but didnt work.

I figured out that it is working oneway.
I mean I can access my Desktop machines from my NoteBook with higher speed. (5MBps)
But when I try to copy some stuff to Desktop Machine from NoteBook the network connection close.(The content is show in the Desktop but only disconnect when I try to copy files)

Then I have to restart the network. ( /etc/init.d/networking restart)

Desktop-----------------> NoteBook (files can be downloaded form Desktop machine at higher speeds : 6-7MBps)

Desktop<---X------------ NoteBook (files are shown in Desktop ,but when try to download,connection close)
