    I have a server 2003 r2 machine connected on a LAN.

    the server is used for data storage and the local workstations use the data on mapped drives.

    When the server is connected to the internet ... all of the workstations on the lan partially lose the internet.

    When i ping google while the server is connected to the internet I get 50% to 75% loss.

    When I disable the LAN adapter on sevrer- alll the workstations on lan have 0% loss.


    When I enable lan adapter on server and configure tcpip and for primary dns i enter 1.1.1.1
    I still get 0% loss

    when I enter 8.8.8.8 for primary dns the problem persists/

    It kind of sounds like a virus on server causing very heavy traffic?
    trojan virus?

    if so which software can I use to remove the virus.

    Im using symantec AV on the server.

    Might be completely wrong but would installing a switch help? Are you using a switch or a hub to connect your server/workstations together?

    The only way I was able to ressolve this issue was by using the repair method
    with the server 2003 cd.


    Scanning utilities did find 11 trojans. After Ive removed the trojans server failed to start. It said that one of the services failed to start.
