Slow network speeds

  Hammersmith 15:41 18 Feb 2010

I have a gigabit system, 10/100/1000 card on computer, gigabit NAS drives,cat6 cabling, gigabit linksys switching but speeds are woefully slow so I suspect its either a) the Orange Livebox b) the way I've set up the cabling or c) both!
Can anyone shed some light please and suggest how to speed things up eg the optimum way to wire the router to the network or what to look for?
Many thanks
