Ping sometimes working and sometimes time out?

Last Modified: 2013-11-09
I am having a strange issue here. All stations and one server (all windows) connected to a switch in a network, same subnet. If i ping from server to any workstations or reverse, ping sometimes time out. I also tried to ping the router which connected to the switch from any stations, it also have the same issue.

I replaced the switch and routers - brand new, still having same issue. I even replaced network cable. What is wrong?
