how do I increase the memory allocation for windows 7 lan driver

I need to know how to increase the memory allocation for the lan driver on windows 7. I have been having issues with these Windows 7 Ultimate pc's losing the network shares constantly. After doing some research found that others were having the same issues and no one was having any success except one person that increased the memory allocation for the lan driver. The only problem was that they failed to say how they actuall did this. It seems to be an issue that after awhile the windows 7 computer will stop responding to requests from the 2003 server and a reboot would fix. This one person increased the memory allocation for the lan driver and his problems went away. Can anyone tell me how this is done. I would like to try because none of the conventional ways listed in the knowledge base has helped. Please help me if possible. This is getting urgent as my boss is getting rather upset with having to reboot his pc multiple times during the day.

memory allocation of lan driver? well, I didnt get it, but in my opinion, I do think the Auto-tuning also is a factor of this network issue;

I will give this a try. I will let you know what happens. The posting that I found with the statement about increasing the memory allocation for the lan driver was found at the bottom of this posting:

Ran the netsh command and this fixed my problems. Issues have not shown up since the running of this command.
