I have recently set up a samba to act as a domain controller.  At first
glance the setup seems to work fine however when I try to move large files
(800 meg+) from my desktop to the server I receive the following error after
about one minute: "the specified network name is no longer available". I can
copy/open/write and files size smaller than about 800mb.  I have ensured
that the Suse firewall2 and WindowsXP firewall are turned off.  

Router Specs:
    Netgear WiFi /w 4 Wired Cat5 ports
    Firewall Status: On (Tried off as well)
Server Specs:
    Suse 9.1 Pro Linux
    RAID 5 Controller (560 GB available to the network to store files)
    Samba 3.0.20b
    Domain Controller
    Firewall status: off
Desktop Specs:
    Windows XP Pro
    Connecting to Domain is Successful
    Fiewall status: off
    Can copy/read and write files smaller than 800 mb
