Unacceptable speed for MacBook Air to access Windows servers on the LAN

Hi Experts,

We just bought two brand new MacBook Air (OS 10.8) laptops. Both are top of the line with 8 GB of ram. But we find out the speed of accessing the Win servers on the LAN is unacceptable. Accessing network LAN files has been a major issue. It takes 10 to 15 minutes ++ to even pull one up.    Interestingly….the first couple were fine.   But the balance of the day any network file has been very slow to access.

In addition to the slowness…  While working on one file…I tried to pull up another to access historical data…. It never loaded and the file I was working on crashed.  

Basically, I'm experiencing the same issues while here in the office that I experienced while working remote via VPN.   Being local hasn't helped.  

Did we miss anything? Please help.

actually the file name should be nsmb.conf instead of smb.conf for OS10.8.2 including only one line:

streams=NO

Thank you very much.
