I'm not sure, but smb has generally unpredictable speeds from computer to
computer. (I've had a windows network for years and have hated this
problem.) The best way I have found to fix it is to mount drives. I think
you should be able to do it using the smbmount command, but I'm not sure of
the syntax, so check out the manpages.
Hope that helps.
