Hi Joel,
Sounds like a hardware problem, or a worm problem. I'd run NetMon and
see where the dropped packets are coming from.

Subject: [isalist] Dropped Packets

ISA 2004
Windows 2003 Server
XP client running firewall client or web proxy
Should I be getting 88% dropped packets on my external nic. This is a
test server and only has one user attached.
I am also still having problem with a few websites. (Dell, Wal-Mart,
Yahoo inbox) Sometimes they work sometimes they do not. NsLookup works
on all these sites.
Could this dropped packets issue be the cause or does this just show
that the firewall is working correctly.
