file transfer rates (ad-hoc mode)

I am experiencing some weird download/upload rates on the ad-hoc wireless network using 4965AGN wireless card. From my FTP client (machine using 4965AGN card), when I upload some file to the FTP server (Windows machine using Linksys Dual Band A+G wireless adapter), I get ~100 KB/sec. While the download speed is around 500 KB/sec (why there is a difference of 5 times in file transfer rate?).

Do I need to change anything on my iwlagn wireless driver, such that the file upload speed be increased to 500 KB/sec (to match the download speed). Is it even related to the wireless driver or its something else?

One more thing, is there any way to enable higher rates on ad-hoc connection, I just see 1, 2, 5.5, 11 Mb/sec for the scanning results, while other AP in managed mode give up to 54Mb/s.

Details of the Linux FTP client machine:
