Slow upload speeds after upgrade

Hello all, I've flipped about 50 pages back in the forums and haven't found anything that would explain the problem I'm having right now. The problem is that I need to transfer about 5 Gigs of data from a Windows XP(SP1) machine to a fresh full install of RedHat Linux 9, to do this I chose to upload the files using ftp from Windows to Linux, but the upload speed never goes above 60KB/sec. I know the problem is not the Linux machine or the Windows machine along with their respective software because I've tried, uploading/downloading, with both Windows and Linux, from other servers on the internet and had speeds reaching 600KB/sec. I think there's a problem with my network. I've disbaled the RHL9 firewall and the firewall built into XP, still same problem. The network is configured as so.
Windows XP-------HUB(Cable internet 10MBPS max)------RHL9
If anyone has any idea as to why this is happening, please post.
Thanks in advance.
P.S. I would prefer not to use Samba because i have world of trouble with it.
