Hi guys,

I seem to be having a bit of a strange problem, I think it may be a DNS issue but someone may be able to shed some light on it.

I have a pretty complex(for a home network) set up, where by im stretching my wireless internet across two buildings and a large area.

This is achieved by:

Phone Line > Belkin ADSL Router(Router 1) >Wifi> Wireless Repeater >Wifi> PC with the wireless and wired ethernet cards bridged >Ethernet Cable> Another router being used as an access point(Router 2)

After some tweeking this system has been working fine for a couple of weeks. However I occasionally now run into issues where the network goes down, and ping requests sent to the main router(router 1), appear as follows:


Pinging with 32 bytes of data:
Reply from Destination host unreachable.
Reply from Destination host unreachable.
Reply from Destination host unreachable.
Reply from Destination host unreachable.

Ping statistics for
    Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 4, Lost = 0 (0% loss),

With being the address of the pc im pinging from.

Can anyone see any reason for this? Its an intermmitant issue which makes it harder for me to track down.

Any advice would be very much appreciated.

are you using wireless? then it's not in the reachable position or if you are using lan then may be your cable is not working well so check the all connection and confirm that

The signal is fine, i get full bars, and have checked the exact strength with InSSIDer. The ethernet cable is also fine.

then why don't you use static ip instead of dhcp.
