> Can you give the details of network that you using (Company, HW detail etc.). My company is devided in 7 different units which are located in range of 15 to 20KMS and connected with 11 MBPS wireless lan where some times network work very slow as well as break the link for few seconds due to bad weather. So if you are using wireless lan with more speed in like my situation please give me all details about your network.

HI Jignesh

If you have intermittant breaks in your wireless then no system is going to work flawlessly. Even if you use SQLServer you may not get data corruption but you will get disconnected the minute the wireless connection breaks and then what?

I suggest you seriously look at using Terminal services. That way your application and data are kept in one location on the server. You connect to a TS session and run your app. If there is a break in wireless then the link is broken but the session will remain will remain up. If the user re logs in, depending on your setup, they will be re connected to the same session they had open. This way, there will be no data loss due to corruption, the user will not lose any data they were entering and you can then look at fixing the root cause of your problem which is the wireless link.

Setting up TS is too big a topic to discuss here and I am not an expert on that. You can find out a lot by using Google to search on Microsoft.com and your network person, if he is worth the money being paid should know or can find out.

With regard to our network, we run our apps in a Terminal Server Windows 2003 farm. We have a central location where we have our server farm. All users from all over the country log into this farm using DSL lines and run all applications on the TS session stored there.

At remote sites users connect using wireless to a central hub which is connected to this network. Counting the central servers, test servers, SQLServers etc we have over 30 to 40 dedicated servers.

You would need just the one server since you have only 7 users, The server should be capable of running win2003 and maybe 4 gigs memory with 2 processors should be enough.

Like I said I am not an infrastructure expert. Seek some advice.But if you want to stop the current corruption in data given the intemittant state of your network, then this is the first step.
