[Samba] Access to shares too slow

Hi all,

we recently moved our offices to a bigger place. Therefore all our 
servers and network electronic had to be turned off... :)

Well, I know it sounds odd but after the move Samba is much slower 
serving the shares and users have to wait ages for the information to be 
copied or moved across the network. In some cases, Windows desktops seem 
to freeze until the data is retrieved from the Samba server where the 
shares are hosted...

Nothing has been changed nor modified. System and network configurations 
remain the same, smb.conf is the same on the server, we use the same IP 
range, gateways, etc etc.

Any clues? Maybe I'm overseeing something really obvious... :-/
