Not real sure if this will help you, but there is a setting to disconnect idle sessions in XP/W2K...  You might want to see if this is enabled, and try adjusting it accordingly...  

Open your registry and find the key below.  Modify the value, or create a new string value, called 'Autodisconnect' and set it to equal the time in minutes before a session is disconnected.

Restart Windows for the change to take effect.

(Note: Set the value to 0xffffffff to disable the disconnection function.)

  (Default) REG_SZ (value not set)  
  Autodisconnect REG_DWORD 0xffffffff (4294967295)  
 
HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanServer
 
Registry Settings:
System Key: [HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanServer\
Parameters]
Value Name: Autodisconnect
Data Type: REG_DWORD (DWORD Value)
Value Data: 0 to 4,294,967,295 (0xffffffff) in minutes

apply this through a group policy, also check your power management settings for your network card, windows xp has a tendancy to turn off network cards when it goes into power saver mode. Device manager, network adapter then click on the powermanagement tab. uncheck allow winodws to turn off this device.

We've just solved that same problem over here...

http://oldlook.experts-exchange.com:8080/Networking/Q_20715616.html

...you may have some luck with adding the
KeepAliveInterval
KeepAliveTime

changes in the registry.

So, what was up with this..??  Did userlinux post two questions on the subject..??  

Might be a good idea when doing this to comment the other thread in the question..  That way we can be advised of identical solutions being posted...  No big deal, but just a thought..

No FE, me and userlinux thought we had it licked (the accepted answer) and he came
back with the 03/21/2004 04:07PM PST post stating the drop had returned. It was then
I instructed on the keepalive values and that's what the real cure was.

I know somebody should get CS to move the accept but I was procrastinating that for now.

No problem..  just curious as to what had happened..  I figured it had something to do with those values, and glad you discovered the cure..

Fatal_ExceptionCommented:
Yea, I was involved a few weeks ago in the same thing..  A lot of experts joined in and I had already solved it in another post, and the answer was awarded to me for the previous posting..  Had some explaining to do, so I know what you mean...

Glad you and Linux worked it through...  Problem solved, that is what counts..

Ok, it wasn't until I saw the "Good Answer" mail till I realized what is going on.

You were right FE this is a double. I'll go to CS and explain it all. That's 500 too much for me
and 500 too less for userlinux.

It's ok userlinux. Actually double posts aren't allowed.

>>Hey if I can aford the points it is up to me<<
No problems here. I don't need points. As long as your fixed that's all that counts.

Let the rules fly over this if that's ok with you. If not just go into the thread I posted
in community support and add to that.
http://oldlook.experts-exchange.com:8080/Community_Support/Q_20929718.html

They are your points and you have the second to last say in what happens with them...
the "first say" is the board owners here.

No worries at my end userlinux everything is cool.

As I said, there is nothing to 'get over'....  In fact I take offense to that....  all I wanted was some clarification...  when you post twice and not let us know, you waste our time, and I don't know what your time is worth, but I charge a lot for mine....  And if you are going to get an attitude with me <get over it> it will be a long time before I enter into a thread to help you out...    All was well until you made that comment....

Sometimes things get distorted online. People weren't meant to relate via text only.
Someone says this and someone says that and then the meaning can get lost somewhere
in all of that, there isn't a face to match the words to.

If we were all in the same room none of this would have happened. This could have
been easy if I saw what FE was talking about when he first queried about the double.
I had too many things going at the time and wasn't paying attention.

userlinux, we (techs @ EE) always point out things to each other cause we know one
can miss things. When your talking to many people about computer fixes during a day
you can get numbed in the brain by thinking too much. We are all here to help each
other whether it's a user or a tech. FE was just doing what we always do and that's
relate to each other.

As goofy as it sounds the moderators and board owners here are pretty stringent on
the rules they have developed over the years. They want everyone to adhere to them
and no exceptions. userlinux you've posted in the community support thread and that
is exactly where it should all be solved.

Your both right and that's where the communication is getting lost (I think).

If linux would have bothered to read my comments above, he should have realized I do not have a problem at all with the thread, including your points, which are well deserved..   I had nothing 'to get over' until he posted that last comment, which after a long day, is quite simply an irritant...  

Anyway, I am going to drop it now...  Too little time in life for these distractions..
