Windows 2003 Share acting weird

We have a server using Teamed NICs' that has a strange problem.  When opening a file share from a client computer and then drilling down to a folder, you can watch the file share back out, one folder at a time until you get a message that the server is no longer available.  The funny thing is, if you wait a second, you can get right back in.  

I've tried removing the Teamed adapters and using a single NIC, I've tried reloading the latest drivers for the NIC's and turned off things such as flow control and TCP offloading.  I cannot make this go away.  Even more peculiar is that I have another server with the exact configuration that does not exhibit these problems.

HELP...  I have no more hair to pull out!

does it happen on all client machines or just one?
does it happen locally on the console?

Problem resolved.  I found a setting in the advanced properties of the Intel Proset called Interuption Moderation rate.  After setting this to "off" on both NIC's the problem went away.  Network access to this server is a little slower now, but stable.

I'm accepting my own solution because I found the problem through trial and error.  This question had not been posted more than an hour when the problem was resolved.  Thanks to all that took the time to respond.
