    I was able to connect fine via samba (SMB) to my networked servers during the week but starting on Friday this kept happening to me. I know that the connection to the server is fine as it works PERFECTLY on my Windows 7 Ultimate backup PC.

    I've tried all the diagnostics that I could (PRAM, PMU, Apple Hardware Test, Reinstall.etc) and came up with no luck. I even spent an hour on the phone with Apple Technical Support but they never heard of this problem and weren't able to help over the phone.

    I made a quick video explaining what is happening and uploaded it to youtube for demonstration purposes.

    The computer is a 27" Core i3 iMac w/ 4Gbs of RAM and an ATI Radeon HD 5670.

    Any ideas?

    Seems like no one was willing to help me out here, thanks guys :cool:

    Turned out to be that the recent lightning storm half fried my Dell PowerConnect 3024 switch causing samba connections to fail but everything else to work fine.
