In most cases, this is firmware issue. Check if there is a new firmware available.

Just built a new Vista Ultimate (32) PC. For backing up data folders,
I connect (via UNC) to it from a Windows 2003 Server which runs
SmartSync, a folder syncing utility. This worked flawlessly with the
previous XP client.
With the Vist client, it works for awhile, and then starts erroring
out with the error "the network BIOS session limit was exceeded," and
at that point I can't connect to the shares on the Vista PC at all
from the 2003 server, until I reboot the Vista PC. Then everything
works again...until it eventually errors out the same way. It's as if
there's some sort of transfer limit set within Vista and after it
exceeds whatever this limit is, it blocks all connections until after
The KB lists this particular error, but it has to do with Win2000
IIS/FTP servers, not Vista.
Anyone seen this before?
