What is your 'domain server'??

by robo_dev In reply to internet problem

Was this configuration ever working properly?

Are the workstations using static IP addresses or DHCP?

If they are using DHCP, which is the DHCP server? the router or your domain server (or both?). If you have more than one device acting as a DHCP server on your network, it would cause a problem such as this.

Age Of Modem

by TheChas In reply to internet problem

I was having this problem for several months were I needed to restart both the ADSL modem and router with increasing frequency.

Turns out that after about 5 years both the modem and router were failing. After replacing both, everything works well.

Make sure that the modem has enough air circulating near it to keep it cool.

Also, depending on how clean and stable your power is, you might want at least a surge protector if not a full power conditioner for it.
