Users getting dropped from network

By LauraA ·
I have 3 users out of about 70 on our Windows 2000 domain that continually get knocked off the network. I have a mixed environment of 98, 2000 and xp machines; these 3 have 98. My other 98 users are not having problems. I have more than enough CAL's (I had been told that 2000 and xp machines would bounce a 98 if enough licenses weren't available). On one of the users I swapped out the network card and physically moved the machine to rule out the cabling. They log in just fine at the beginning of the day, but while connected, they may try to open, print or save to the network and can't get to the network folders and have to reboot. My security event logs are full of these event ids for these 3 users everyday. Any suggestions/ideas?

Are you using DHCP or static IPs? You might want to take a look to see if the DHCP renewals correspond with the user losing their connectivity.

Also, you might want to take a look at the following links:;en-us;272594&Product=w98;EN-US;278558

And lastly, it might be an issue with cached passwords on the win98 box. try deleting *.pwl from the 98 boxes, rebooting, and having the user try again.

Same as above; got the patch but not used as yet. Hadn't gotten to the cached p/w.
