    What's the client OS? What service pack? What version of MDAC is the client running? What's the status of NetBIOS on your network?

    What OS is the server running? Waht service pack for the OS? What version of SQL? What service pack?

    Any firewalls running between your client and the server?

    You'll need to research these to get to the root of the problem...
