Network connection braking after a while

I'm not so sure it's the same.

German-to-English("Netzwerkpfad wurde nicht gefunden.") == "Network path not

I get that all the time when Windows can't connect to Samba. I see it with
authentication failures, and when the smbd associated with my client
crashes, or is so busy it doesn't respond within the timeout period.

Logs would help find the problem. The log named "log.hostname", where
hostname is the Windows client that displayed the "Network path not found"
message is the one we need to see.

Hello Users, sorry for my bad english...
since a few month I'm trying to install Samba 2.2.0 on a Suse Linux 7.2
Everything is working fine but the stability of the connection.
The Client (WinNT and Win2000) can see and use the shares but while
usage the connection is reset.
The log of Samba says Connection reset by peer.
While copying some files the Win Explorer stops and says Network
connection not reachable. I hope this description comes near to the
German "Netzwerkpfad wurde nicht gefunden."
I've asked so many Newsgroups but none of them could help.
I've changed the Network-Adapter and the Cable, did a complete new
Installation tryed smb.conf examples and many other configuration.
I don't know what I can do anymore.
At last I tryed to update Samba but everything went wrong, so I
reinstalled the 2.2.0 Version. The installation instructions for
Suse-update said to copy the files of source/bin (after make) to usr/bin
and nmbd,smbd and swat to usr/sbin. After doing this, nothing was
working, so I copied a backup of 2.2.0 back to these folders.
Can please anybody help me  ??
