2008 Terminal server refuses connections

Strange problem. Over time my 2008 std server with TS installed works great for a few hours then refuses connections as if its not setup. I can't even login locally. When I do a hard reboot, all is restored. Also, my backup connections team viewer and logmein are refused as well.

Could this be a RAM issue? 32bit 2008 STD server with 4 gig of RAM

I'm a bit confused. any help is appreciated.

Please check the if any antivirus software or firewall settings led to this issue. And also check Event Log for any errors.


I don't have antivirus software installed, yet. It seems to be a DNS issue. Internal connections work fine, I just can't access the internet with the server which will not allow external connections via TS. Any suggestions?
It turned out to be a bad network card.
