Reason is your client saves them at that time, and doesn't ask the "server" (your Android device) for the original time stamps. You could try using a SSH server on your Android device. DroidSSHd would be a good choice, for example. To copy your files then you need to start this SSH Server first on your phone, which usually tells you the IP and port used. ...
If all you want to do is access your device from a Computer, my favourite app is AirDroid. Allows you to browse files file a lot more. Doesn't require root. I've found that I can get 1.5 / 2mb/s on a busy network
There are tons of alternatives. Find a list of FTPServers in this German thread (Google Translate version), others like WebDAV and Samba can be found here (again: Google Translate version). I'd say you could give FTPServer a try, sounds promising. No root mentiones, highly rated. Alternatively, you might want to try DoMobile FTP share (very small: less ...
Looks like this is a pretty common problem. One of the comments in the second link says that you need to change /sdcard to /mnt/sdcard.

Your issue is probably among them. I've been using IPv6 successfully on my Verizon Droid RAZR MAXX since I got it almost a year ago, on ICS. Works great on 4G LTE. No idea what Jelly Bean ...
I use SSHDroid, which doesn't require root (although if you have root, it will take advantage of it). This has the dual advantage that it can not only be used for file transfers (using SFTP), but since it's an SSH server, it also allows you to open a remote shell on your phone. I usually get ~1Mbps via WiFi.
