How many files exist in the folder that you are having problems access?  If the number of files is to great the time that it takes to access the folder will be great as well.

WHY ARE YOU SHOUTING?  IT'S DIFFICULT TO READ ALL CAPS WORDING.  PLEASE AVOID DOING THAT IN THE FUTURE.

What are the client DNS settings?  Are there any messages in the client or server event logs?  What kind of network switches/hubs are used?  Are they switches or hubs?  10/100 or only 10 Mbit?

leew:  Sorry, for caps. All network is connected through three switches(10/100), there is no error message.

MassHalMan:  Same folder access from different computer without any problem. There is lot of files and folder under that folder. But same drive have another folder with almost same number of files in it, no problem to accessing it. When i logoff from the client computer, it takes like half hour to close the network connection.

Let me ask again - What are the client DNS Settings?  And the servers?  Please post them.

client settings

   ip                  10.0.0.113
   subnet           255.255.255.0
   def gw           10.0.0.1
    dns               216.123.232.4

server settings

    ip               10.0.0.7
    subnet         255.255.255.0
    def gw        10.0.0.1
    dns             216.123.232.4


Dns is not local.

There's your problem.  Server DNS MUST be pointed to itself - as must the client.  The settings should be:

   ip                  10.0.0.113
   subnet           255.255.255.0
   def gw           10.0.0.1
    dns               10.0.0.7

server settings

    ip               10.0.0.7
    subnet         255.255.255.0
    def gw        10.0.0.1
    dns             10.0.0.7

Active Directory REQUIRES DNS - your ISP's DNS (216.123.232.4) has NO IDEA where your global catalog is - and for that matter, neither does your server - which IS the global catalog - because it's not pointing to it's own DNS server.  The clients can't find the network services quickly because they have to time-out looking for the DNS information on the wrong server.

I recently put together a series of links on DNS for Windows - I suggest you review them... especially the one titled "10 DNS Errors That Will Kill Your Network"

Why the B grade?  What about my answer did you find incomplete or inaccurate?
