Well, I have a hp pavilion a305w. Everything works fine on it, except sometimes I get that "local connection unplugged: A network cable is unplugged" dialog, along with that connection symbol with an X. This happens randomly, and it disconnects whenever it feels like it I guess.
The cable IS plugged in, and it is in the right spot. I think the problem is that my jack (or port?) is loose inside the computer. Sometimes I have to rig it and put like a pencil in between the wires to hold it in a steady place. I forgot to mention, I have changed the ethernet cable multiple times, so it isn't that
So my question is, is it possible to tighten that jack in the computer? Or maybe even get a new one? I'm not tech savvy at all, but I was just wondering if this is a real thing and if I could take it to a shop to get it fixed.
Or is there anyway I can somehow disable using this cord and still get connection? This doesn't effect my xbox360 internet connection or my Wii.
