My Internet goes down a lot and I have a lot running on WiFi so when my Internet goes down so does all all my WIFI stuff because it runs off the router. If I have a Network HD or Printer and my Internet goes down I believe my Network stuff should still run?

yes your home network should still run, mine does. Although I can't remember the last time my internet went down.

It would help if you explained 'my internet goes down' more fully.

If you just lose Internet access, the internal network will still function.

So, is your modem/router going awol? Are you having to restart it? Certainly, if this device is being used as the primary router and it fails, your wifi etc won't work.

Perhaps a bit more detail would help us help you.

Looks a lot like it is your router that is at fault. As already pointed out your home network is not dependant apon the internet being conected.
