I know it may not be of use to you, but -

   I lose my connection on a daily basis - fixed ip, but it seems to be the 
lan card itself - it's a 3com, and this is an NT machine, but it may be 
worth checking.

I am not a member of the samba team,
and anything that I say may not be as
accurate as a response from one of the
team.  I reply to save those more
qualified time, which can more usefully
be spent developing SAMBA further.
