I have 6 IP cameras on my network. 2 of them (both plugged in via ethernet cable) lose connection to the network (can't be ping'd) every time I connect one PC to my network. I've reached this conclusion by removing all the devices from my network and then adding them back, one by one, slowly testing to see if the cameras drop.
I tried to fix the problem by adding a new network card, but the problem still occurs.
All of the computers in my house use Windows 7 Home 64bit.
My network looks like this
Cable modem -> wireless router (A) -> 40 foot ethernet -> to wireless router (B) (connected Lan to Lan)
wireless router (A) connections: one PC (trouble maker?), 1 wired IP cam (this one drops) wifi printer. There is a wired connection to another switch: roku box, ip cam, Onlive micro console.
wireless router (B) connections: one wired ip cam (this one drops), one wired NAS, one wired PC, 3 wireless ip cams.
I can't ssem to figure out how to keep the cameras from disconnecting. Right now, I connected a wireless bridge to the PC that was connected to router (A) to keep it isolated and the cameras are not disconnecting. I want to connect it via ethernet because I need the gigabit connection to my NAS from both PC's.
Thanks for your help!
