There is no way to speed up the data transfer from external hard drive to laptop. your system is working fine according to your system configuration.

There is a program called Teracopy which is supposed to help with Vista's slow file copy/deleting performance.

By the way, do you mean 1.02 Megabits/sec (Mbs) or 1.02 MegaBytes/sec (MBs)?

You could also google for "Remote Differential Compression" which I have seen being blamed for slowing things down.

Taken from another forum:

"With Vista I got a marked speed improvement in
file operations by disabling Remote Differential Compression. Control Panel/Programs and Features/ Turn Windows features on or off/Uncheck Remote
Differential Compression. I have found no negatives to disabling RDC. Hope this helps".

And some further speedups for Vista - one of which is that described above
