Well, everything feels slow because the mouse is slow. But actually the programs aren't slow. It's just the mouse acting as if the signal suddenly got weak. Once the files have finished transfering the mouse springs back to life.Are other programs slow? It might be that the hard drive is reading and writing a lot of data and therefore slowing everything else down.
Have you tried a wired mouse? Or if you're using a laptop, the trackpad? Are they still slow when you're transferring files over wifi?Well, everything feels slow because the mouse is slow.

wrote a big long reply to this, but my computer decided to poo itself haha.I also posted this in the linked thread.
I stumbled on this tread after I began experiencing the same problem.
I have a Logitech VX Revolution laptop mouse, a current model Macbook Pro 15" (2.5ghz) and am useing a netgear wpnt834 mimo g router.
1. Whenever I transfer files to my server over wireless the mouse stops functioning properly (some of the signal is lost, so it feels like it tracks slower, it also misses a portion of the click and scroll presses)
2. When I originally noticed this problem my router was set to channel 9, on which I generally get the best performance. I decided to try switching the channels, and found that while my transfer rates were a little lower on channel 6, the mouse problems seem to have gone away.
To help diagnose this problem, and hopefully find a more concrete solution, it seemed to present strongest to me when sending a lot of data, although it did still happen to a lesser extent when receiving data. So my educated guess would be that the airport extreme card is putting out interference when transmitting.
