Hi, i have a tower running windows server 2008, and it is a media/storage server.
When i am writing to the server, which has a 2TB external drive attached via USB, the server drops connection alltogeather. If i ping the server (ie ping 192.168.2.2) i receive a 100% success. When i am attempting
to write to the shared storage, i get a 100% packet loss! and the transfer sticks on time remaining: Calculating.
This has never happened. I have replaced the switch but with very little experiance troubleshooting network failure im not sure where i can trace the packet loss or if its the server itself.
I have a NIC and a wireless card installed on the server, the NIC (192.168.2.2) and wifi (192.168.2.254) both loss connection. (unable to ping) until i cancel the file transfer, then the server, both addresses
are reachable again!
