Local area connection 2 is connected but ebery hour or so it says a network cable is unpluged and my internet goes down. then i have to go to the back of my computer, unplug my 2wire, then plug it back in to get it connected. Does anyone know how i can fix this problem?

Go into My Networks and disable the one that has no connection ever..

Or, if it is the onboard NIC, disable it in BIOS..

If it is an add-on card, remove it from the system..
