A little more checking and apparently the Realtek NIC drivers turn this feature on, whereas the Broadcom NIC drivers on the other Win7 system do not, and it was disabled there. Enabling LSO on that system caused it to start acting the same with slow writes to the other Win7 system and printer, but normal read speeds.

So both are disabled now and life is good.... time for a beer.
It's always something.
