WRV54G/QuickVPN opening files from network drive very slow

    I have a WRV54G/QuickVPN setup that seems to be working fine -- file transfer rates are acceptable when I just copy a file to my local computer. The problem occurs when trying to open a file directly off of the network drive -- it can take 30-45 seconds to open a 10k excel file (which will transfer in less than a second and then open immediately when copied to my local machine). Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    It could be caused by your anti-virus program, some like Norton have a plugin for MS Office which checks files as you open them. This works Ok for local files but really slows down external ones.
