I have recently setup a small business network using 4 computers, 2 printers, one Dell switch, one router, one NAS and two wireless router extender (repeaters). I am using DHCP for all devices, with no management control on switch or router.
Everything worked initially however now the computers periodically lose internet connection (limited) for no apparent reason. When I remove the wireless extenders (we are a small club so during busy times this will get a lot of connections from customers) the the computers gain access to the internet again. The only thing I can think of is the DHCP is somehow confusing the IP addresses allocated on the repeater router. Any ideas anyone?
I could introduced a managed system e.g. allocating IP addresses to each machine however I was hoping to avoid this.
