SLOW download BLAZING fast upload ... Local Network fun!

I am on a:
G5 2.5
OS X 10.3.9
4 GB DDR SDRAM

This is my issue:
I have a small little net work of computers here
2 G5s
2 G4s
all the same OS

From my both of my G5s I can upload anything from another computer at great speeds. However I have trouble downloading from other computers and I can't upload anything from my other computers to my G5.

I'm not a network guy ... I amazed that I got it to work in the first place.
So I'm askin ... can anyone give me some ideas about what to do? Anyone had this issue before?

p.s. internet works fine all around

Are you seeing the Drives and just having problems with permissions? Are all 4 computers hooked up to one router sharing an internet connection? Simply, how are the machines "physically" connected via a network?

Not a problem with permissions.
They are all going into a 10/100 HUB.

So you are able to log into the machines, see the drives, but not copy anything? Do you get an error, or does it just take forever?

What is the quality of the cables? Sometimes a wire gets crimped and you loose half your bandwidth up or down...

Could you do a little scenario like this to help narrow it down:
G5.1 to G5.2 - no problems with upload or download
G5.1 to G4.1 - downloads both ways okay, but upload FROM G4 bad
G4.1 to G4.2 - no problems with upload or download

Does it matter if you take a machine off the network? Do you have Appletalk turned on? (turn it off)
