Bridged V.M. network

I have 2 (VMWare) virtul machines running inside my Gentoo host. (one
WinXP, one FC4) Bridged networking is active. LAN connection is detected
at 1.0 GBit/sec on both vm's.
Host IP = 10.0.0.002/255.255.255.0 (static)
XP Guest IP = 10.0.0.021/255.255.255.0 (DHCP from modem)
FC Guest IP = 10.0.0.024/255.255.255.0 (DHCP from modem)
Modem/Router IP = 10.0.0.254/255.255.255.0
Default Gateway on host + guests : 10.0.0.254
Default gateway on modem: my ISP's gateway.
Primary DNS on host + guests :10.0.0.254
FTP and HTTP download started from guests (client) to host (server,
vsftpd/Apache2) seems to max at approx 55 megabyte/minute, which seems to
come near the 10Mbit/sec HUB connecting the Host system to the LAN.
Samba file sharing on the host for XP, file transfer speed around
I think it's best trying to solve this from FC rather than messing with
Windoze net cr@p.
I suspect there may be a routing problem of sorts. Is that a realistic
suspicion? Or should bridged Guest and Host always net-connect internally,
regardless of gateway settings etc.
I tried finding a solution in the VMware manual & forums. No succes yet.
