Hey all, quick question for you. The network we have at work has been acting screwy all day. There are three people in my office room and I have a constant connection while they are on and off again. It seems that when one can get on, the other is knocked off and vice versa. No one else on the network is having problems except for those two people. We installed a new router and still, the problem remains. What could the issue be? Tangled cords? Wrong information in their computers? I am not sure. I am not very knowledgeable about network issues so any kind of guidance would be greatly appreciated. I am not sure what more information is needed but if you need more information just ask and I will do my best to get it for you.

Thanks so much!

it sounds like they might have been given the same IP address by the router/dhcp server. If you have not yet, power-cycle the router and the computers.

Also, go to your Command prompt screen and type in:

ipconfig /all

for every computer that has this issue. Every computer that you do this on should have a different ip address.
