Take a look at the sheet properties to see what sheet format is referenced in your drawing. It might be that reference that's taking you somewhere undesirable.
I believe the first option is what you need to change.
i have checked the setting and all ok in options. all refer to new server address.
when in a drawing
selct properties, wait 45 seconds!

next to browse button
the unc link to the old server is shown.
i click browse and wait 45 seconds
i then select the correct folder and file and it puts the file name in the box.
if i then repaet the above its all forgoten.

References to unavailable servers can take some time before it realizes the server is unreachable. My machine takes roughly 5 seconds to figure out the server is invalid before displaying the dialog. I have seen other cases, perhaps network dependent, where invalid UNC references or HTTP references take up to 30 seconds.
With regard to changing the template reference to a new valid location, I cannot reproduce the problem you describe where it fails to save the change... If I use a drawing template from a server and then RMB-Properties and change the template reference to some other server, it remembers the change when I perform the RMB-Properties again. Likewise, if I reload the drawing, the template references the new location.
What version of SolidWorks are you using? Can you reproduce the problem if you create a new drawing and then change the template reference to another server location?
What kind of user you are - administrator, power user or user?
