No, not sure and I don't know how to find out. I found out something 
else: downloading from a machine in the LAN from a fast host yields 
significantly better performance (in the range of 6-7 MB/s). The problem 
is obviously within the LAN, because in it the max. speed isn't more 
then 850KB/s. How can I narrow this further down?
