Hi, in my office network there's 4 computers with one being kind of being a server where client data is kept (no-one uses the computer being the 'server'). The 3 other computers access the client data on the 'server' but apart from that it's a normal network (i.e. not a proper server). Until recently the connection to the server has been really slow. When on the server computer the network connection (to the wireless router) is dropping on and off every second. I have tried putting it into another network port but i have the same problem. It is a hardware or software thing? How can i fix this?
Thanks, Scott

p.s. the server's mobo is a asus m2n32 sli deluxe if that is helpful

What is the set up exactly? Is the server connected by cable to the router and the other three by wireless adapter? If yes, try to disconnect the server and move the cable to a communication port on one of the other computers and see if all the other three are working well. If they do then the problem is with the server and we will try to find out later whether iy's a hardware or software problem.

If it doesn't work well then I would suspect:

1: The cable between the router and the server.
2: The router itself
3: some disturbance to the communication.

Thanks for reply, your set up is correct. I'll try that then, also i've tried different cables and still get the same problem so that isn't the cause of the problem.
Thanks, Scott
