Slow network browse

I have a Windows 2003 network and when I am using policy and mapping a drive the computer runs very slow (even after logon)  If I logon as the admin then it runs fine (admin is also part of the DOMAIN) I have having trouble browsing the network because it is so slow...any idea what might cause this???

Consumer  NAS devices are slow compared to modern desktop PC's, even when you spend $1000 or so (because of their low-speed embedded electronics), so it's not at all surprising.
Other then Admin of the NAS device, user Access Permissions are not Cached. They need to verify each access.   Once you  Map a share is it note to bad.

What Is Computer Browser Service?
Computer Browser service is the mechanism that collects and distributes the list of workgroups and domains and the servers within them. The list displays in the Microsoft Windows Network window and related windows in My Network Places.

Microsoft Active Directory services in Windows Server 2003 and Windows XP create a searchable list of computers and resources that is separate from the list of domains, workgroups, and servers in My Network Places. Computer Browser service provides backward compatibility with computers running earlier versions of Windows that must use Network Basic Input/Output System (NetBIOS) over TCP/IP (NetBT) and are not Active Directorycapable.

I guess I am not clear...I mean I have a drive mapped to a NAS on the network and when this user is logged in and try to open that drive it takes forever, but eventually sees it...however if I log on as the administrator it opens rather fast...what could be causing this

Avoid NAS-ty Windows File Serving Systems   by HP  
October 4, 2007
2:00 p.m. Eastern / 11:00 a.m. Pacific
Duration: 60 minutes
For many IT departments today, their Windows file serving systems hardly resembles the scalable, dynamic resource promised by today's newest approach to network-attached storage. Instead they are saddled with disparate, dedicated servers spread across a widely distributed landscape. Burdened by capacity challenges, data retention issues and a lack of resources needed to perform data and OS management on these uncoordinated deployments, IT is ready for a better solution: the next-generation of NAS.
Attend this Ziff Davis Enterprise eSeminar with Jeff Day of HP as he discusses how next-generation NAS systems excel in the Windows OS. The native high availability and massive scalability offered by these systems allows IT departments to unify far-reaching Windows environments and create a file serving architecture that performs better, costs less and is significantly easier to manage  while provisioning IT to take best advantage of the benefits of Longhorn.
This webcast will review the technology, explain the cost savings you can achieve, and illustrate the dramatic improvements in utilization and uptime you can realize with a next-generation approach to file server consolidation.
