answer= yes

Commented:
Sounds like you may have a faulty NIC.  I would install another NIC into the PCI slot if you have one available and see if it is dropping connections.

Note, when you install a new NIC card, it will have a different IP address, so you may want to aware of that and change it manually.

Or you may have a faulty port on the switch itself.

Good luck!

It never hurts to update you drivers (NIC)... but Dell does not have a PowerEdge 745N, they have a PowerVault 745N. Eithe way I would start by going to support.dell.com and updating your device Drivers.
How much traffic is there across the network / files being used on the server?

Here is a good link (Solved similar issue) to begin with:

I have updated the NIC driver, CREC driver and firmware for CERC also.
