I am using Win2000 pro, a network of 10 computers, an ADSL Connection( Alcatel Speedtouch Pro,Modem/Router)
The addressing on all the computers is set to automatic (ie no fixed computer addresses).
I use an Ftp connection on one of the computers, which transfers a "large amount of data" , in both directions.
I also have several computers connected to the internet at the same time.
Most of the time, all works perfectly. BUT on the odd day, data being downloaded via the ftp connection disappears
Could this be
The fact i do not have fixed ip addresses
A dhcp problem. How do i check there is only 1 dhcp server" ,,,,make the adsl the dhcp server? or is this not the problem
Could it be just the adsl connection
Hard to know where to look when it only happens occassionaly.
I am mainly looking for some experts help, in pointing me in a possible direction to solve the problem.
