I have WS2003, fully patched and running IIS 6.0. We have only one website running on this server and that is it's core function. At work I have the website marked as a home page, and every day when I open my browser at work, the connection to the home page times out. Then after about 5 minutes if I try again the site connects and things appear to be okay. But then, later during the day, the same series of events tends to re-occur.
We didn't have this problem until we had to do a scratch re-load of the OS due to an error with acpitabl.dat (about a month ago).
Anyone with any clues as to what could be causing this type of behavior? This morning I re-seated all memory and cards, and even changed the cable running from the router to the pc. The tcp connection is a static ip address, and hardcoded to use 100 full duplex.
PS - this behavior also persists even when attempting access the website from home and also from my wife's office too.
