Device causing Router Conflicts

Hello Experts :

Our router went down in our small business... and I came to the conclusion that it was caused by a device in our other building. I came to this conclusion because two different routers crashed as soon as I insert our fiber link to our other building into our switch.

So what I did was unplug everything at the other buildings switch... and slowly plugged everything back in until I hit an Ethernet wire that would cause the crash... This never occurred.

This morning when I came in everyone's internet was working in the main building but at the other building causing this issue... everything was down.. I unplugged and replugged everything from the switch and everything worked fine. Currently everything is working fine, I just feel its a matter of time before everything crashes again.Ive had an issue like this once and it was caused by someone resetting a wireless access point being reset to the same IP address as our router causing a conflict but this is not the case. Can anyone think what else could be causing this?

We have :

Motorola Surfboard 885100 Modem
Zyxel Zywall USB 100 Router
ZyXEL Switch PoE ES-2024
Netgear Prosafe 24 Port Gigabit Switch

Other Building causing the issue also has a ZyXEL Swith PoE ES-2024

These two switches have a fiber connection between the two... I figure it has something to do with these two switches. Any Ideas?

Thanks in Advance!

Matt

Download Nmap http://nmap.org/ and scan all the devices on your network.  This will give you a list of the addresses so you can find the conflicts.

Trend Micro has marked that page as dangerous, are you sure its cool... Is this similar to WSPing?

I've never had a problem downloading from that page.  Here's a wiki article on Nmap if you want more info.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nmap
