At work, I'm on a network of two computers. My boss set up the network before I ever worked here so I don't know how they set it up but we have this problem that the computer that is connected wirelessly seems to lose internet access on a daily basis and to get it back up you need to shut down both computers and unplug and plug different devices back in. Sometimes the internet on the wireless computer works fine, other times it doesn't work at all. The computers are right next to each other and the router and modem.
I have no idea what the problem is because the network actually works. I can communicate between the computers, I just lose internet access on the one. A box does come up on the wired computer that says that we can now unplug the cable modem.
I don't know much about networks but my boss expects me to fix the problem.
the modem is a SURFboard cable modem SB4100
the router is a linksys wireless-b broadband modem model befw11s4
I checked IE and it is on automatically detect LAN settings.
If anyone can help me, that would be great. This problem has been annoying me for months now.
