One last thing i forgot to say. Some ethernet cables (from the workstations to a switch) are quite close from power cords.
Although most cables (including the one from the main switch to the server) are at a proper distance from power cords, could EMI be blocking the whole network?.


EMI can be a possible cause if all network activity is disrupted. Based on your initial post, you only encounter issues with file sharing so EMI cannot be the cause.

If CAL is the cause, wouldn´t i get a message saying i reached max connections or something like that (instead of the annoying "not responding" explorer window)?.

not on the client...or at the very least not as a popup error message....this warning would most possibly show up in the event log on the server in question (which also wouldn't be a bad thing to look at...the event log on both the target server and the host that's having the issues)

agreed....also most computer power cords are shielded

Ok. I've checked the event log at the server... no warning or error during the halts. One odd thing (at least for me) is that there are tons of events in the Security folder (or whatever it's called). Usually more than one in a second and sometimes even 10 events at one second!.
The ones i checked had details like "User logoff ..." or "User login ..." or "Special privilegies assigned to login..." .
Is this normal?
Our network is quite small (10 - 15 workstations but 2 of them aren't able to join the domain)

Thanks
