I have installed a Windows 2003 server as a DC with DNS and DHCP for two or thee client computers and it's working fine. The problem is, around two to three days, I have to reboot the server or else accessing the Internet is very slow and then finally not working at all.

Can anyone suggest why this happen and how do I go about fixing this problem?

Many thanks in advance!

i'm running 2 win2k servers here at work and they've ben running for 64
and 48 days without a reboot. Not sure what configurations your machine is, but it sounds like your reporting and logs are growing faster
than necessary. Could also be that your DNS isn't giving the proper
Default Gateway.

Make sure enable logging is not checked. That will gum up your system faster than anything.
