IIS, by defalt, uses the identity of local account, COMPUTER\IUSR_computer
for anonymous access. So make sure you create a local domain account that
serves this purpose.

In addition, make sure your ACL for the remote share and the NTFS allow
correct access.
It should allow the 'network account' that you assigned to w:\ as well as
the IUSR_ account.

More about this...

If that all is done, measure your bandwith to w:\ is that really good?
