I seem to get an awful lot of out of order frames from a server to a specific station. There is nothing really complicated about the system. The server is in the states and the w/s is in holland. There is not a bandwidth issue at all. any thoughts

Out of order frames are quite common and usually not a problem as long as there is no packet loss. TCP stacks can easily cope with OoO frames since they have a receive buffer to sort the payloads into. I have seen plenty out of order frames in situations where WAN acceleration appliances were used.
