Reading / writing to disks as test isn't likely to be a good test of a gigabit link (most standard disks top out around the 40-50MB/s level).

What network interface are you connecting from? If it's a motherboard on a PC, are you sure you're looking at the correct interface (some motherboards have multiple interfaces)? What tests did you run?
