I have a Server that's disconnecting the Internet Nic connection every few hours.
I've tried everything I can think of - no settings are purposely disconnecting, and I've verified that the cable modem is OK (by plugging into a stand-alone Win98 PC - connection stayed up for several days).
The server is networked to two Win98 PC's. I also disconnected the networking to try to isolate the problem - Internet connection still disconnects when no other PC's connected.
In the event viewer, I see the the following message(amongst others): "The DNS proxy agent was unable to bind to the IP address ***
This error may indicate a problem with TCP/IP networking. The data is the error code. "
A cable modem help site has suggested that win2k advanced server must have some setting/firewall that can block dhcp. Does anyone have any ideas for me to try?
