We jsut had a power outage this morning. I have reset everything in the building. Clients are able to log on. However, twice in the last 30 minutes they have been disconnected with the message "the connection to the remote computer was broken"

    Ok... It is actually a temporary disconnect... for around 10 seconds. However, sometimes it happens several times in a row....

    During these disconnects, can you ping the domain controller, default gateway, file server, etc?  Any errors in the servers' logs during these time periods?

    Did you network devices loose power as well? It could be a problem with spanning tree re-convergence

    Accepted Solution

    It was a bad workstation...
