I have a customer with a 2008 SBS server and XP Pro clients logging in through AD.

The problem is that the machines are losing the connection to the server at least twice a day and they then need to be rebooted and logged back in.

Any suggestions / hints on why this is happening?

Any fixes?

They had a peer to peer network until recently using the existing equipment which worked without any problems. It is only since the server was introduced that this has started happening.

Hubs do not make for good networking equipment. It gets to chattery between computers, and all the computers are broadcasting out saying who is this IP and where are you, when this happens you can pretty much start a intranet DDoS which sounds like what is going on. I would replace the hub with a switch, as with a switch it becomes less chattery.
