Client has Cisco 2960G (10.0.27.100) switch connected to a Netgear FV318 firewall/router (10.0.27.1). The Netgear FV318 is connected with a CAT 6 cable to another Netgear FV318 on a seperate network (10.10.22.254). There is an AS400 on the 10.10.22.0 network that the 10.0.27.0 network connects to.
Over the past month or so client has started to notice continued dropping of network, 4-5 times a day. During a troubleshooting session this morning it appears that the Netgear on the 10.0.27.0 network is randomly rebooting causing the connection to drop.
My question, is it possible to eliminate the 10.0.27.1 Netgear, assign DHCP from the Catalyst and setup a static route between the 10.10.22.254 Netgear in order to allow access to the AS400 on that network, and if so what do I need to do?
