That seems pretty slow for a 100 Mbps network.  I tried a
quick test here, creating a 100 MB file on the web server:

$ dd if=/dev/urandom of=trash.bin bs=1024 count=100K

and then fetching it over the local network with wget:

$ wget http://livepenguin.com/trash.bin

and got 11.21 MB/sec.  I also have a D-Link (DSS-5+)

Perhaps your use of scp comes with a lot of CPU overhead?
