Windows 7: Mac/Linux boxes losing Windows 7 share after an hour or so..

Mac/Linux boxes losing Windows 7 share after an hour or so..

Hey guys I have a brand new box with a Supermicro C7Z170-OCE board which has two Intel NIC's. An I219-W and an I210. Anyway, I can connect via SMB to the Mac and the Linux box with no problems, and other Windows machines connect natively just fine, but after a bit the Mac and Linux boxes both lose the connection. When I try to reconnect they claim they can't find the system. I can restart the Mac or Linux and still have no luck, but if I restart the Windows box they instantly start working again.. and then the circle continues.. Does anyone have any ideas on what to try? I of course have the system set not to go into sleep mode. It's on High Performance in the Power settings.

Thanks for any help!!

Can anyone help me? What's strange is when this happens cutting the connection and reenabling it doesn't make it work again. Windows 7 has to be restarted before it will work. I appreciate any help!

Windows Time Losing an hour!
Weirdly, whenever I reboot in the last few days, my time is 1 hour behind. I have to go to the time and date settings and re-sync with the time server to correct it. The Time Zone is set correctly. Any ideas?
