Transferring between desktop and laptop over wireless. Transfers time
out and it will not allow me to retry. Some finish some do not. Could
not find an option in /etc/smb.conf for timeout setting. Anyone know
where this can be adjusted?

Thank in advance,

P.S. over wired network transfers between desktops finish fine.

Have a look here & see if any of that helps:

FWIW - my [global] settings on my desktops are quite similar to the
recommended settings in the appb_02.html. My socket otions are only set
to "TCP_NODELAY. The only problems that I've had is with a laptop with
the standard 'off the shelf' smb.conf file installed by Ubuntu - my file
transfers were taking forever. Once I copied my smb.conf over from the
desktop to the laptop & modified accordingly the transfers worked just
fine. However I only have 'wired' connections.
