Network server drop

By beachboy11 ·
I have a customer that uses HP Tablets (Vista) to roam their offices for medical care. Every so often, they loose connectivity with the Server which houses SQL. So I had him check his wireless connectivity every time they get "Can not connect to SQL database" and they have 100% connectivity.
At the same time, they can also ping the Server which comes back at 4ms. The software company that wrote the software is insisting that it is a Network issue. I am at a loss now after a full day of troubleshooting. I had someone tell me that there might be a wireless "timeout" that exists in the Registry. Any thoughts or ideas here?? Thanks.

Yes, sorry, should have noted that. I checked the logs, and there is nothing about dis connectivity. Also, there are two tablets on the wireless network, 5 desktops on the wired network. No problems with the wired side, just the wireless side. But you can connect to the internet when they loose connectivity, so I know its not a router or wireless issue.

on one of the PC's in question it may give you something more concrete to go on. The only info that I can find is probably out of date.
