http://ubuntuforums.org – Hi I have a box running 10.04 server x64 that I use as a central file server for my home network, it's main purpose is serving up media to various clients around the network. The server is a core 2 duo, 4 gb ram, directly connected to the router (Asus RT-N66U) via a PC gigabit LAN card. The machine has 2 raid 5's using mdadmn (6x 1TB and 3x500GB) + a couple of other drives for OS and backups. The problem I'm having is when watching video streamed from a samba share I'm getting intermittent dropouts and freezes every few minutes. I'm pretty sure the issue is on the server side as I'm getti (Hardware)
