I have a 25 node LAN with all workstations running WinXP Pro SP2 and servers running Win2k3 R2 SP2. One of those workstations has been recently losing its ability to access the internet as well as the inability to ping the default gateway. Previous attempts to correct the problem were resolved by rebooting the router (SnapGear 300) and ISP-provided cable modem and/or rebooting one of the servers (which should make no difference as no outbound traffic is routed through any servers). All workstations have identical protection configurations: McAfee Security Suite with firewall activated; windows firewalls disabled via group policy; plus periodic scans with Spybot S&D.
Any ideas as to the cause and possible resolution? Thanks. Mdhubblecat.

Asus doesn't list any windows 7 Drivers for this board and Broadcom says of the windows 7 Driver for this series: This driver does not support BCM5700, BCM5701 and BCM5702 devices. To
use these devices under Vista, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008
R2, or Windows 7, please use the XP or Win2K3 driver above.
So here is the link to grab the Windows XP/2K3 drivers: Good luck! http://www.broadcom.com/support/ethernet_nic/netxtreme_desktop.php
Yes is possible. Use Routing and Remote Access facility from Windows 2003 server to create a VPN Server. Create a VPN connection to Windows server, and thus you get an IP address from windows 2003 server and you can use printer.
You can actually try accessing the interface of your gateway and put it on DMZ mode. That way it will open the ports on your gateway to ensure passage of all data from your gateway to all your computers even when the dsl is on. But make sure tat you have security software installed on all your computer workstations bec. putting your 2WIRE gateway on DMZ mode will expose your connection.
If this is happening on all workstations you should look at your network settings and verify that your DNS settings are correct. Also look in the error logs on the server to see if it is fillingup with system or application errors.
