Slow file transfer speed between computers on my network

I have a windows 8.1 pc connected to my 2.4ghz wifi router and I have a Windows XP pc connected to my router via cat5 ethernet. When I transfer files from those computers to one another the maximum file transfer speed is about 9.5 mbs. I obviously know that the cat5 is gigabit so I know thats not the problem and also my wifi card in my windows 8.1 pc is 300mbps resulting in about 37.5 mbs transfer speed and finally my router is capable of up to 600mbps so I am not sure what the problem really is. I have tried some fixes but nothing has really worked. oh and also my windows xp pc is connected by ide and it can get wright speeds of 30mbs I have tested that.

    ok one we are talking about less than 10 megabytes a second transfer speed I have a flash drive that can get 20! I know there is no hardware bottleneck between the systems and when I look at my network usage it is showing an upload speed of about 70 megabits per second which roughly translates to 8.76 megabytes per second. I just wanna know what is limiting my 300 megabit per second wifi card to only 70.
  3. The answer is :
    Read and write speeds of conventional hard drives.
