Guys,

If the new servers you got in, and possibly even the other servers you were using, are Dells, or more especially running "Broadcom" on-board NICs, I have a very simple fix for your connection drop issues:

Buy one of these: http://www.cdw.com/shop/products/default.aspx?EDC=1706359 for each server.

We had issues with the Broadcoms in our data-center. We replaced them with Intel NICs and all problems went away.

I highly recommend replacing all Broadcom network cards with Intels. Broadcom makes really really crappy server-class NICs.
