I am not sure when this started happening or why, but I have a home office running:
- a "server" XP machine with an external hard drive attached to it via USB, and
- my working machine, also an XP machine.
Lately though, the network connection for the server drops and I cannot figure out what is causing this. I use the Remote Desktop frequently and this too drops off from time to time.
I can ping the server from Fing on my Android device and no packets drop, I can ping the machine from another machine on the network and it does not drop and lose remote desktop connection.
Is there anything else I can check, any monitoring tools I can use to find the source of the problem?
