Help with Netgear Readnas Duo (slow acessing files)

My readynas is hooked up to my netgear wireless router modem (108mbps) via ethernet cable which is connected to a Dell desktop upstairs p4 3ghz xp.
meanwhile downstairs, a dell 1501 laptop + vista using internal built in wifi.

I got my freebie 500gb HDD installed fine. Ive transferred loads of pics/music etc from my desktop to the readynas fine, speed was pretty good. Accessing files on the laptop is incredibly slow tho. Music plays for 1second at a time then stops. Pics take 10secs+ to load, Movies are unwatchable unless your playing "Mr darky goes to the black silent place"

Ive looked in the settings pages (http://192.168.0.4/admin) but I am totally out of my depth, I have no idea what to change if anything.
They throw out so much jargon, it may aswell be Latin.

Can someone please tell me what I should be checking out (in lamens terms!) I would have thought the bottleneck would be my laptop with its built in wifi, but not this slow?

CIFS,NFS,AFP,FTP,HTTP,HTTPS,RSynch, Shares???

Jumbo Frames, MTU, Bonjour service??

What type of wireless card is in the laptop B or the most common G (54mbps)?
Signal strength will also determine overall speed - is it slow even when close to the router?

There is usually a little icon near the clock at the bottom right to give an idea of both.

Maybe wrong here, but I think Jumbo frames is more aimed at Wired Gigabit Networks (1,000mbps) not the standard 100mbps, so I doubt wireless will support it.

Network traffic is delivered by the data sent in packets (think of vans with goods in them on a motorway - the network cable). Jumbo frame effectively allows larger than normal packets [more data per packet] (think of replacing the vans with lorry's instead). Both sides have to accept Jumbo packets (ie you may need switch the option in the properties of the network card). The problem with Jumbo packets is that if the data is lots of small files, they can be less efficient.

sorry for late reply.....

In the laptop is the "Broadcom 802.11g Network Adapter" Its either on 4 or 5 bars, never drops and before the NAS was installed had normal access to my shared files (when pc upstairs was on obviously) though wad a tad slow but much faster than accessing the NAS files.

I have the same setup as you, i followed this guide and it sorted out my vista speed issues accessing my ready nas.
