    Temporay loss of network connections causing application hangs in Outlook,
    word excell and voyager software. Looks like program freezes tempararily and
    then picks up again.
    Event id 1053 "Windows cannot detrmine the user or computer name of the
    specified domain either does not exhist or could be contacted group policy
    processing aborted.

    the router in the configuration for security?

  2. Hello RJ,

    Thank you for posting in the SBS newsgroup.

    According to your description, I understand that you received the error
    message "Event id 1053 - Windows cannot determine the user or computer name
    of the specified domain either does not exist or could be contacted group
    policy processing aborted.", when the network connections is temporarily
    lost. If I have misunderstood your concern, please don't hesitate to let me

    Based on my research, the Userenv 1053 "Windows cannot determine the user
    or computer name" error could occur if there is an DNS name resolution
    issue. As you mentioned, you have a Linksys cisco router with firewall
    doing the DHCP( DHCP & DNS on server disabled) as suggested by linksys.
    Please enable the DNS service and re-run the CEICW wizard to configure the
    DNS. To do so, please perform the below steps:

    1) Leave the Default Gateway of the internal NIC blank.

    2) Configure both the internal NIC and the external NIC to use the internal
    DNS Service as the DNS Server.

    3) On the DNS Server, create the DNS Forwarder to forward the external DNS
    resolution requests to the ISP's DNS server. See:

    323380 How to configure DNS for Internet access in Windows Server 2003

    4) Strictly followed the instructions in the KB article below to run CEICW:

    Additionally, for network security, you may refer to the below document:

    Securing Your Windows Small Business Server 2003 Network

    I am appreciated your time and cooperation. If anything is unclear, please
    feel free to let me know. I am looking forward to hearing from you.

    Best regards,
