Ok, here's the deal. Our town has two schools, an elementary school, and a High School. The high school has a T-1 internet connection that is provided by our only internet provider in our area, WRT. We have the elementary school connected to our high school connection through the means of 2 network extenders. Just recently, the elementary's internet has been acting wierd *EX- no internet most of the time; if the internet is connected it will stop working after about 20 min...*.

We are guessing that there is a connection somewhere in the elementary school that is screwing it all up, and we are currently trying to find it by process of elemination *having one guinea pig connected and adding another connection one at a time, until the guinea pig gets disconnected*. Would anyone advise doing it this way, or is there a quicker, easier way of finding this out. If more information is needed about the routers, switches, and network extenders...just ask.

Thank you ahead of time for your consideration.

Are you sure it's not a software thing? It could be an IP conflict or something like that. The network setup "wizards" can mess you up there, better to set all of that stuff manually.

I think I would set up one machine and see how long it stayed online. Just to make sure the issue is not somewhere between the schools. It may not be a machine at the elementary school causing the issue, it maybe a break in a cable or some other interference. If that is not the case, I think I would do just what you are doing. I don't know of a quicker way personally.
