Windows 7: unidentified network issue

It's certainly a good start. There are ways to make a router work as a switch but it seems to create more problems than it solves.

I'd wouldn't set up a network that way and expect it to be very reliable, there are just too many variables when trying to use a router as a switch.

I'll have to talk to my boss when he gets back, see what we can do about replacing the routers... to my understanding, our network was sort of pieced together bit by bit as we needed more people on it, and I imagine they used routers because of availability and/or because they didn't know the difference between a router and a switch(heck, I didn't know the difference until last week)
