Your message hints at but doesn't actually say - is it only over the
network that this machine stops responding, or is there also some evidence
of problems when you're at the console? I assume only the network, since
you've given information about CPU load etc.
Are there any resource conflicts on the machine?
We had a machine do pretty much what you just described at one stage. We
replaced the network card and it's been happy ever since. I still have
trouble getting by head around doing things like that - but spending an
hour's wages on a replacement network card or spending a few hours finding
the problem... Actually, I'm finding it MUCH easier to spend other
people's money nowadays :)
Oh - you might also check the network cabling; it might have been bumped /
still be being bumped or temperature changes might be affecting things.
