Hi J65nko,

To confirm the NFS server is in the same network (lan) as the Thin clients ( The issue (I think) is when the wireless gateway drops out and there is no DNS then the NFS server starts going slow.

I just did a tcpdump as you suggested and figured out the issue. Thanks for your help.

The problem was that the dhcp was giving the hosts a hostname and they must've been using this hostname in their nfs requests. Simply adding the hostnames of the thin clients to /etc/hosts on the server solved this problem.
