All of a sudden takes a long time to connect to network drives on server

Since yesterday we've noticed that when you try and open a network share/folder on one of our servers it takes a long time for the folder to open (30+ seconds).  It only happens on the one server which is SBS 2003.  Ive tried to delete the shortcut and recreate it but still the same thing happens.  Although if I connect by clicking run then typing:  \\servername\share folder   that opens right away.  Nothing has changed on the server, no new programs added or anything.  Our other servers that have shares on them open immediately, its just this one server all of a sudden.

I actually did try that but that didnt work (well maybe it did a little I changed it from 400 to 200), plus the network shares start at root, in the link provided the guy talks about his starting up to 5 levels deep.  I really am stumped on this one, since it started happening out of the blue.

I forgot to add:   On our Win 2008 file server which has a share drive for our marketing dept.  They have folders with 100's of photos and they open instantly.  Its just the SBS 2003 shares that all of a sudden giving us this problem.  I should add we are on a gigabit network with gigabit switches, with a few PCs still using a 100nic card.

It was a hardware based issue.
