I also went trough forums and some indicated that the problem is Atheros L1, and yea, I have that one

But the weard thing is, that turning off servers firewall helped for the problem o.O
Well, I think I have an extra PCI network card, I'll give it a shot when I have time.. and let you know

Hmm, I've turned off firewalls (hoping my router will do the job short-term) and seen no difference. In fact my WHS is now indicating that the backup service is no longer working and no amount of restarts or cleanups seem to change this. I'm at the point of giving up on WHS completely and just using manual backups on my vital data. WHS seems to give me more grief than it is worth.

As a last resort I'm ordering 2 Intel (win7 certified) network cards now as the Nvidea nforce4 NIC in my server seems to be questionable too.

But I'm unimpressed with the way this is all being integrated. Win7 is apparently unsupported by WHS except by the beta service pack 3. Surely MS have had time enough to pull all this stuff together? We are not talking obscure hardware here, this is all mainstream stuff.

Apct keep us all informed if you make any progress.

Disable "large Send Offload (ipv4)"

Tried to send large files to WHS. Uncussesfull-network locks up.
Solution at my place: Disable "large Send Offload (ipv4)" Realtec PCIe GBE controller.
