There isn't a single answer that will help you. You should start by eliminating possibilties... Disconnect the '400 from the network and connect it directly to a PC using a crossover cable. If that still causes problems, then it's either the software, cable or network adapters. (At least you've narrowed it down to only 5 possible pieces) If that worked, then you can connect just your PC and the AS/400 to the hub/switch and see if that periodically disconnects, etc. Keep trying different items down the line until you find out where it's failing. If you can't afford to tear things apart just to fix this, then the other alternative is a get someone who's familiar with TCP at the packet level, and use a network sniffer to see what's going on. Check the packets at various different points on the network, and see where things are failing. If this is happening from many different AS/400's, then most likely the problem is either a hub/switch/router or the network adapter in the PC. Of course, there could also be two different problems going on at once which both cause this symptom... so this could be very difficult to find.
