Home Network Over-reach
Posted on 2011-03-03
Have moved beyond my limited networking expertise. Set up my home network using Network Magic. 3 desktops (1 w-7; 2 w-xp), 1 wireless laptop (w-7), network storage drive, and several printers. Internet provided by Road Runner. Used D-Link DR-655 router, DP300U printer server for older HP LaserJet, & DGS-2205 Gigabit switch. All worked well! Then, upgraded my Road Runner service to a level where I had to use their router (Ubee). Installer created another named network. Desktops constantly cycle now with "Local Network Disconnect" and "Now Connected" -- network connection drops and comes back on. I don't believe the issue is the RR equipment but installers may have caused the initial problem because they didn't know how to deal with someone who had their own network already. I have put my network back together, using the RR Ubee router to feed into my wireless router but still have the problem. Could the issue be that I have created multiple networks and don't have all devices on same network? Should I get rid of Network Magic? Is there a way to just start over? Help!!!
