Hello,

I have a Dell Vostro with Vista Business pre-installed. 4 GB RAM and 200 GB Hard drive. It's used kind of like a server in my office with up to 7 computers connected either wired or wirelessly to it via a wireless router (D-Link).

All computers access the internet without any glitches and all connect to the router without any flaws. The big issue I'm having is that the main computer (it's called MAIN) will sometimes not allow all the computers to connect to it to access programs on it. I have file sharing and security turned on for everyone and I know that it allows the connections to all computers because they all can connect if I reboot MAIN.

But if the computers have been on for a while, then I sometimes I get an error message for one or two of them that's like "Cannot connect because there are already as many connections as this computer can accept." Something like that. Now I know Vista business will allow up to 10 connections. Why does it give this error message when there are never more than 7 computers? And when I reboot, they can all connect again.

This is very frustrating at work if I have to reboot MAIN because one of my workstations cannot access the patient management and imaging programs I have installed on MAIN.

I'm even considering installing XP on MAIN. One person suggested I install WIndows Server 2003. Do I really need to get rid of Vista and install a different OS to make this bug go away?
