unable to retrieve list from dc2 ?????


I just put a cisco router on the network removed the original router which now is on the inside of the network I mean the cisco has the access to the internet and the actiontech wan port plugs into the cisco ethernet port my tvs connect to the action tech they get an ip address of  my cisco router is so I have two subnets i guess
this can be an issue i think but do not know how to resolve it

The master browser has received a server announcement from the computer TGCS001
that believes that it is the master browser for the domain on transport NetBT_Tcpip_{0B45F591-576B-44B4-8.
The master browser is stopping or an election is being forced.

this one appears on a regular basis it thinks dc1 is a master why?

can both routers be the issue?

do I need to set someting in either router to stoip this?

I never had a home netowkr with more than one router before new territory for me
