Are you connecting your PC in domain or Workgroup ? Cause in the WG mode cause delay often.

I have experienced same situations. When users browsed the shares, there was no or little delay, but when the users opend a doc after a some lan inactivity there was big delay until more than 15sec. The following points could reduce it. In the network properties => tcp/ip => advanced parameters:

- Be sure to add your server adress in the WINS server (and active it in Samba)
- don't check LMHOST if you have not set it up in your server
- check Use NetBios over tcp/ip

Any way try to connect one PC in domain for test purpose.
