what is the storage device on the network mate. Is it a PC server or a mac or a SAN device. Are you downloading stuff over wireless or a physical connection?

Sounds very much like an issue with your WiFi router. You can probably verify this by using you MBAir elsewhere and getting normal speeds.

Talk to you IT guy about it. Or if you are the IT guy, you need to go into the WiFi settings on your router and see what features you can turn off. Also, search through the EE "Mac WiFi Speed" or such. You will find at least 4 to 5 quick fixes (and a couple I don't understand because I've never seen).

Things like protocol (turning off N), radio channel (change from 6 to 3), I've seen settings for throughput speeds that can be turned down.

I think checking your DNS addresses a different problem, but it something good to know about:

Turning off wireless B, can be another solution. As can making sure you are using WPA and not WEP:
