Disconnect Network Drive

By dankaren1995 ·
Why do I get disconnected from the windows 2003 server if my computer is idle for awhile? To get reconnected, I always have to reboot. What could be wrong?

No, it's not simple. There's something wrong with my router or the one of the slots on it. Thanks anyway

Check the power settings on your network card (device manager > Network Adapters > your_nic > Properties > Power Management tab. A lot of times the option to "Allow computer to turn off this device to save power" is enabled, which will turn off your NIC after a certain amount of time. If not that, check the 2003 server policies to make sure there isn't an idle time limit in place (I know that can be set up for Terminal Services, not sure on LAN connections).

Along the same lines as BSchmidt. Check your PCs power settings. Make sure that your machine does not turn off hard disks, go into standby or hibernate. These will kill your session.
Hope this helps

Check this out on default server disconnection of resources. You should be able to reconnect by just accessing the share icon.
