You'll be lucky to get 40-50mb/sec speeds over wired network. This is easily less than 1/2 the speed you'll get with a local drive and even slower than that if you are running raid or a fast SSD or even modern fast HD.

Personally I can't STAND waiting when I'm editing and every bit of speed counts. No way I'd try and work a large lightroom session over ethernet, but maybe it will work for you.

If the preview files are already generated and on the local hard drive and the raw files are on the network attached storage, is the speed over the network less of an issue then?
