We have a small office (6 stations) on Verizon FIOS Actiontec router. Last Friday, we had some internet slowness and an outage. For some reason the internal network was affected. The server became very slow to connect to and eventually we could not reach it. Printers could not be reached as well. I had to temporarily replace the Verizon router with a Linksys switch to restore the internal network. I reconnected the Verizon Actiontec router late in the day and all was well with it again by then. I don't understand why a problem outside of our network would affect the internal network.
Anyone have any ideas on this??
