Windows 7: Network Folder and Excel Sharing with read only issues

Network Folder and Excel Sharing with read only issues

My office has a shared network folder with shared excel spreadsheets used by multiple persons at the same time. We have always had slow connectivity, but after moving the shared folder to another network server (in another city) we are having major issues, to name a few:
1-Read only pops up all the time and it takes 2.54 min to go through all the read-write boxes in order to bring up the spreadsheet
2-spinning circles constantly
3-access denied, contact administrator
4-file cannot be located
5-comments in cells not saving
6-Lost data and having to restore from server
I've been told even though we are all desktop and lines to a computer room, that we wifi over to another building, then to the city where the server is located....most bizarre stuff I've ever encountered.
