File Service Warnings on Server 2008 R2

I just installed a new server into our business.  The server is a Dell T310 with Xeon 3430 processor with 16 gb of ram. We are running Windows server 2008 R2.   It has dual Broadcom BCM 5716C Nextreme II Gige ethernet cards.  I am only using one of them and disabled the 2nd one.  Everything is setup on the server and it is running well.   I checked the Server Manager today and saw that there were numurous File Service Warnings.  I have no other warnings on the server.  

All the computers in the business are running windows 7 64 bit.  They are all on Static IP address's.  I get no one complaining of system outagesor slow down etc.    

I will display the latest warning below as they all appear the same.  

My First question is, should I enable the second ethernet adapter and Bridge it with the first card?  Will that enhance the network speed to the server.

I know that teaming speed up the data but that needs would need a special switch to accept the teaming from what I have worked with in the past.

 I am wondering if this is a large issue.   Others online say that it could be a driver issue with the ethernet cards.

I appreciate any help with this issue.

Here is the Service warning:

This is likely a network problem outside of the server.  I had this show up when moviing from 2003 to 2008 server.  I thought it was the new server, but it turned out the firewall (sonicwall) had a known firmware bug that disrupted the network and it only showed up on the new server.  the older systems just momentarily froze and then continued on without issuing error mesages.  so look at nework components - routers, firewalls, maybe switches, or problem wiring or NICs.  A managed switch can sometimes help determine what port might be reporting high error rates - but that won't always indicate where the problem actually is.

I am running a Sonic Wall  Sonic Wall TZ200W router.  I have to upgrade to the newest firmware.  I will try that.  The Sonic Wall would be the only firewall that I am running.  The switch is a gigabit switch, but not managed.  All the machines are brand new Dell Optiplex's.  Is there some way to determine other than a managed switch whee high error rates would be. Again no one is complaining of network disruptions.  The other question is should I enable the second ethernet card on the server and bridge the connections?  Thanks for your help.
