I have an issue with a client where the windows 7 clients are experiencing intermittent internet / network drop outs. XP clents seem to be fine. These clients are members of a SBS 2003 domain.
The first sign is the client does not have internet connectivity. it also seems that were unable to ping the gateway at this point. disabling and enabling the nic resolves the issue for a short while. This issue happens randomly throughout the day. All of our Win 7 are having the same issue. I have tried the following...
Disabled Power managment on the NIC
Disabled the firewalls
set HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\NlaSvc\Parameters\Internet\EnableActiveProbing = 0
installed the latest revision of NIC drivers
all without success, can anyone help??
Many thanks in advance
