    A network cable is unplugged....

    About once every 10-25 minutes I get that pop up bubble that is telling me that the cable is unplugged. Of course then the internet is temporarily disconnected. I have updated the ethernet drivers (Nvidia nForce networking controller). I tried an add in PCI network card (NETGEAR FA311) and used the newest drivers. I have tried a different port on my router (Linksys WRT54G). I have even resorted to a Windows system restore. Still the same problem continues. Could this be a bad patch cable? Any thing I missed?

    I have checked it out some more. I am not actually losing connection with the router but the "Internet Gateway" is going down. I checked the logs and everytime it happened I got this.

    The IP address lease 192.168.2.101 for the Network Card with network address 0011096A4983 has been denied by the DHCP server 192.168.2.1 (The DHCP Server sent a DHCPNACK message).

    I did a release and renew on the DHCP on my router, hopefully that will help.

    EDIT.

    This should have it fixed now, I set it up as static.

    Hey there,

    After reading your first post I was going to suggest STATIC IP numbers. It looks like you
    got to it first...good for you .
