There are two buildings about 75 yard apart connected by a wireless network using a Netgear wireless extender. The extender in my Mom's office is connected to an 8 port switch that handles 4 wired computers. The problem is that randomly throughout the day they lose connection. It appears that the only way to re-gain the connection is to reboot the PC. I wrote a batch file for them to run in hopes of getting me some more information when this happens. The batch file does the following:
- Displays ipconfig /all
- Pings the router
- Releases the IP address
- Renews the IP address
- Pings www.google.com by DNS name
- Pings www.google.com by IP address
- Runs ipconfig /all again
I'm attaching two of the outputs in text files below. The weird thing I'm seeing is that when the address is renewed, even though the computer gets an address from the DHCP server (FSV-318 v3) it still can't ping the gateway. Keep in mind that the DNS server is their Domain Controller.
Thanks a bunch!
