I have a wireless netgear network that is supposed to run at a maximum ideal condition of 108mb/s everything says the connection is near perfect. When I place a shared file into my shared documents and attempt to copy it onto another computer, the transfer speed for a 60 mb file takes 35 minutes! I know my network can handle more because the connection from each of the computers through the router to the internet is beyond 300 kilobytes a second on a bad day. The two computers are networked through a netgear router which in turn connects to cable internet. I need a way to be able to transfer files and pictures much faster than my current configuration. Someone please help...

Have you tried pinging one machine from the other to check the round-trip time of packets? How far apart are the computers? Distance matters. Are there many walls or obstacles between the router and the computers? You may have a router that is capable of running at 108Mb/s, but your wireless connection is more than likely half-duplex, which means you are only getting half that speed in each direction.

You are right when I am getting only half that 108mb/s speed, but after opening the command prompt and pinging the other computer, I almost instant response. The connection for the wireless adapter (one computer is wireless and one hooks via ethernet) is 7 out of 8 dots. I know my network is capable of more because I can stream video easily at 3-4 mb/s from one computer to another with ease... Is there something built into the Window's sharing that slows the transfer down, or is there alternative software that I may want to look into?
