Home Network Over-reach

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!!!

Can you put the Ubee into Bridge Mode?  If not, can you put the D-LInk router into Bridge Mode or disable DHCP?  You should only have DHCP and NAT on one device for there to be one "network."
