It is w32 time on the tablets, but they are not the problem, the server is.
It is the server, he said, which pumps out  packets trying to change the
polling interval of the clients  every 300ms. Thus it
is the server's program which one needs to look into. At least that was how
I read the post.
Note that one could surely install ntpd onto the tablets instead of
to keep them synchronized.
