HI, I'm new to W2K3 Server, but I am no way new to Windows XP or any other workstation version of windows.
I have decided to set up a domain for 2 workstations and am running the ICS (Internet Connection Sharing) I also set up the DNS, forwarding it to my ISP and DHCP (With the Bridge having a static 192.168.0.1)... I also turned off authentication on all network connections.
The server has 3 NICS of the same brand (Realtec). 1 for Cable Modem, 2 For Workstations
I have a problem though, About 10 minutes - 1 hour (Never really timed it) the internet goes down, I cannot ping a site, both the server and the workstations loose internet connectivity, but the LAN is still live.
"Geoff" and "Matthew" are bridged nic's....
Pressing "Repair" on the "Internet" Connection brings the internet back online...but then it goes again sooner or later
ZoneAlarm Pro 4 is running but with nothing being denied, the security for Internet Zone is "Medium" and local is "Off"
The Internet Connection Firewall is NOT running
