Slow Network Access - Mac to Windows Domain

I have a mac that is in a windows domain that takes forever when downloading files from a windows server.

The person mounts the drive using "smb\\server ip\networkshare" and it is able to browse the files and folder ok but it will hangs up when she tries to copy a file from the server to her local drive.

I have another mac that uses the server mappings and she has no issues.

The macs are using 10.6.

Hi, try pinging the machine.  What is the time to reply back?

Is this Mac machine on a separate subnet than the other Mac machine?

The macs are both on the same subnet.

Try removing the mounted drives, and then remount them.
Does the mac have the latest patches installed?
