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.
Iv got a client that mentioned to me that sending files to the new printer has been slow for them lately. I might have to check that out on their pc. I dont think anyone else in the office is having a problem, so I know its not the printer
