Internet and network go down interminently
Posted on 2010-11-23
New client has this issue that I am trying to work thru. A few times a week, they lose access to the internet and their LAN. As this is a new client I am still doing discovery, but wanted to know what your thoughts are regarding this kind of problem. From the notes left by the last tech it seems it has been an issue that he can recreate at will. Cablevision says that there are no problems on their end or their equipment (line and modems). The last tech replaced the switch and router. This is a 5 PC office all running Windows XP Pro. One unique feature is that the tech setup a VLAN with a second NIC so that one of the users can have a separate LAN for security reasons. He is their lawyer and does other work also, so he needs the extra level of security and privacy. I have patched the server, don't see anything in the logs that stands out.
