Hi Everyone,
I have a client with Windows Server Essentials 2016 server.  Its managing DNS but not DHCP.  All the clients are Windows 7 64 Pro PC.  I have one PC that keeps dropping the mapped drives. Ex middle of the day they disconnect.

I tried a variety of remedies including changing the network cable, changing where the Win7 computer is connected (different wall data port).  Updating NIC firmware (as well as BIOS & Chipset).  I even wiped/re-installed Windows 7.

Note: I have DNS on the Win7 machine set to the IP of the server.

Any suggestions?
