Losing Internet Connection

Hi
This problem is a pain and I cannot find the answer.

I'm running SBS 2003. Everyday for some unknown reason it loses the connection to the internet, it cannot even connect to the router.
The only solution I have is to re-boot the computer and everything works Ok again. I run a program that uses a lot of bandwidth and its when this program is running that I eventually lose the connection. I have checked the event viewer but no errears appear, the server is networked to Windows 2000Pro and this can still access the internet, so it not a router problem and I have no bandwidth restrictions.

Does SBS have a default limit on the bandwidth used and when reached drops the connection, as I think this may be the problem as stated above when I re-boot it works OK.

If so where do I look and how do I change it.

Any help on what this problem could be.
Regards
Caz

Is load balancing enabled on the machine, if it is then that might be the problem? To check that go to network connections right click on the local area network - properties in the box see of network load balancing if it checked uncheck it.

If the problem persists then I would do network monitor traces to see how the connections are going through. Here is the FAQs on netmon http://support.microsoft.com/kb/294818
