I have a similar problem, my connection disconnects for a split second saying "Network cable unplugged" and reconnects, it does this a few times usually and then my whole connection is lost. Usually restarting my PC fixes the problem temporarily but eventually the connection either says it's still connected but doesn't work or is completely removed from the Network Connections list as if the Local Area connection doesn't exist. I have been given a new modem recently by my internet provider and I'm pretty sure the problem happened without my router connected, I can't remember clearly but I'm pretty sure it did. My router is a Buffalo AirStation WHR-G125 Wireless-G High Speed Router. We've replaced the wires multiple times and I don't think changing the duplex seems to work. PLEASE can you help me, this has been driving me insane.
Additional information: The only thing the router is connected to is a PS3 downstairs and a Nintendo Wii in the same room as the router, upstairs.
My router is relativity new, only bought a few months ago.
I was recommended by a PC shop to do a fresh install of Windows XP, make sure it's stable and then update again, make sure it's stable, to see if an update triggered this problem. I'd prefer if I didn't have to do this and I'm unsure if there are any other solutions or if this would actually solve anything.
At one point it'd show 1.0 Gps as my internet speed when it wouldn't work, now it seems to show it's normal speed when not connecting or disappearing all together.
