In one setup, we have fibre optic connection given by the ISP upto Distribution box inside the house where the fibre optic cable is connected to HUAWEI-ECHOLFIE HG865 terminal .From the RJ 45 port in that device , the ethernet cable goes to the DLINK 8 port switch. All the 8 ports are connected with ethernet cables to 8 rooms going concealed through the wall.
Our ISP person tested the connection by connecting one patch cable (from the DLINK SWITCH via the wall socket)to the WAN port of LINKSYS WRT300N wireless router and connecting other ethernet cable from the lan port of the router to the laptop ,setup the username ,password, encapsulation pppoe and configured the internet .found working.
I tried to configure the wireless in the house by fixing LINKSYS access point in some rooms.Here the problem started.
I cannot fix the LINKSYS router inside the DB in front portion of the house since there is no space in that and cannot keep the linksys router outside also, So I kept the linksys router inside one room and tried by connecting cable from the wall socket to a 5 ports mini switch and from the mini switch I connected one cable to WAN PORT of the linksys router and one cable to linksys's lan port because I want to share the internet in all the rooms.
I checked the internet in all the rooms by taking one laptop to all the rooms and checked through the access point configured in each room.
After few minutes internet drops and the led's in the LINSKYS router starts continuously blinks as if there is some problem
I know that it should not be connected in this way but my question is why internet works sometimes and starts disconnection.
Thanks & Regards
N.B: Currently the setup is working with ADSL LINE directly connected to WAN PORT of LINKSYS ROUTER and connecting the LAN PORT of LINKSYS to DLINK SWITCH without any problem!
I need to know the reason why internet disconnects in the first mentioned connection explained in networking terms Please!
