XP computers maps drives drops off connnecting to win 7 64 bit

we have got a simply peer to peer network 4 computers on XP PRO 1 on vista Pro with mapped drives to a windows 7pro 64 bit all goes good for about 12 to 24 to 36 hours then we lose the connection random BUT the vista computer is able connect or see the map drive on the windows 7 PRO any time, to fix the problem we just restart windows 7 pro 64 and all can see there mapped drive for 12 to 24 to 36 random then drops off, then all the xp computers drop off again together vista can still connect

What do you mean connection? You are not able to see that computer at all anymore not even in My Network? Are you able to ping the Windows 7 machine when this happens from all computers?

Well, try the ping when the share drives go offline from a XP machine to the Windows 7 machine then reverse the order of ping Windows 7 to XP.
