Yes the firmware is up to date. I'm just watching the WIN7 transfer dialog. Last night I got 8MB/s. I enabled wide channel for my 2.4 N band. Still pretty slow. I read that if you use encryption the max speed is 54Mbps or 6.75MB/s so I guess I'm doing better than that at least. I've read that computer to computer LAN speeds are much slower than client to router speeds. that's about all I know so far. I haven't had a chance to play with packet size or other settings yet.
My WNIC in my main machine is a N device but only transmits of the 2.4Ghz channel. Point being, I don't know enough to nail down the bottleneck, which is, I believe, my main machine's WNIC, the router, or the WNIC in the laptop, which is dual band N and does use the routers 5GHzN channel.
The last thing I read that made the most sense is that the router processing power isn't powerful enough to process the information, for some reason, in a WLAN setting to achieve much higher than 10MB/s (100mbs).
