Windows 7 Pro 64 Bit
Network problem with windows 7

I have a windows 7 pro 64 bit I7 running as a "server" with about 8 workstations connecting to it. Intermittently all the workstations lose connection to the server and cannot connect until the server is rebooted

Thanks for any assistance

Check the power management tab in the network interface cards properties, make sure it isn't going to sleep to save power, uncheck box... In the ipv4 properties advanced settings, make sure the router address is showing in the default gateway, and you can try unchecking Automatic Metric and insert a value of 1
