>Do you have an explanation for that if the network link was misconfigured ?

It can be that the interfaces are reporting that the link is ok and
negotiated fine and there are no apparent errors.  However there might well
be problems which you should not dismiss and unless you do a dump fo your
network packets you will not see this.  My advice if you don't have the time
to do this is to plug the Samba machine into a different switch/hub or try a
different type of NIC (or even cable!).  It might seem unncecessary but
invariably 99% of "Samba performance issues" stem from hardware and drivers.
