Network drive disconnects through the day in AD enviroment

Last Modified: 2012-05-09
We are running server 2003 and active directory and recently moved offices.  The only thing that changed was our isp.

The server and the workstation are set to dynamically assign IP addresses. The users have access to the internet and printers without issue.  The problem is we share the server drive as F drive for all of the workstations.  When the users start up in the morning - they have no issues connecting to the F drive.  But a couple of times a day when the go access the F drive they get an error message that F drive could not be reached.  The only way to fix is to reboot their workstations.

What can we do to permantly resolve this issue?
