hi guys for some reason my ubuntu server always drop network connection

i have bind , samba, cups ,webmin and ssh server installed.

static ip

no firewall configured..

this is mainly for intranet print server.

the bind thing, and samba may not be properly configured as i am still learning how to configure them

what bothers me is the network connection drops all the time I am configuring the printers or on the webmin

apparently it is not the network issue as other machine are working fine

google get me to

tail /var/log/daemon.log
tail /var/log/kern.log
tail /var/log/messages
tail /var/log/syslog

i saw those log.. some error message dont give me any clue..

any suggestion what i should do? thanks

I don't suppose it's running headless?
There are a couple of other threads about problems with headless machines. Here (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=9094422#post9094422) is one - mentions acpi=off as possible solution.
