I am trying to access my remote server Windows 2008 R2 by going to my computer and opening \ and this works fine. When I try to simultaniously login on another computer to view the shared files, the first looses access. I thought it was because I was using the same user, but apparently Not, and even when they are on seperate users it fails...

Is this a network issue? or a server set-up issue? I just have a BT Business HUB runing my network connections with a few switches, reluctant to go buy another Draytec because of the price. Would like to make it work with the hardware I have atm

Ok I have narrowed it down to The Network as in the BT Business HUB or some such issue. As using my mobile internet on one of the PCs, it allows two simultanious connections (I.E. One on mobile, one through BT Internet) Thanks in advanced for your help –  Henry Aspden Oct 21 '12 at 13:22
You should make that an answer, and then come back in 2 days and accept it :) –  Falcon Momot Oct 21 '12 at 16:21
