Losing network connection when processing lots of files
Posted on 2003-11-20
Ok, I have Athlon XP 1.3mhz with a build in VIA Rhine II Compatible Fat Ethernet Adapter on the Mainboard. The Mainboard is by !st, model AN19E/AN19c. I am running windows 2003 server. I have a a PCI IDE Card for 2 more hard drives, CDROM, FLOPPY...etc I have 512mb of ram. I am just running a simple File server. No AD or DNS. My connection configuration is Client for Microsoft Network, File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Network and Internet Protocal(TCP/IP) I have a static IP address of 192.168.0.2 /net mask 255.255.255.0. Default Gateway of 192.168.0.1 and Preferred DNS 192.168.0.1. I am connection to the internet via another PC that is connected directly to the network. That is why my DNS and Gateway is 192.168.0.1 because that PC that is connected directly to the internet is configured with that IP address. I have a 16 port hub
Now, when I am on any other PC that is running XP and I am copying large amount of files accross the network, I lose the connection to the network on the server. I have to disable the Local Area connection and enable it again to regain access. When I am processing large amount of photos, like creating thumbnails, I lose my network connection. I don't get the problem from workstation to workstation, only when I am going from workstation to Server.
Help any ideas?? I did install all the windows updates and patches. I did have Windows 2000 server and I had the same problem upgrading to 2003 I thought I would fix the problem.
Thanks for the help
