your NIC card may be going bad, or you could have a bad CAT5 cable (ethernet)

try reseating your card, in the past i have seen that resolve the same problem.

one more thing to try; turn off your PC, and unhook the router from the phone jack and your PC, reboot and hook it up again, see what happens.

sounds more like a dodgey cable i would look into replacing the cable "generally" the ethernet card wont get a connection at all or will cause the system to crash just a thought tho, if it is the ethernet card try loading optimized defaults in the bios as this can reset the system resources.

i tried everything cept replacing the cables... the cables are brand new so they shouldnt be bad right? it is still happening so i dont know what to do? when i hook the internet up straight to one of the computers the problem stops and doesnt occur! so could it be the settings for my router that is making this problem?

thanks.. - Josiah

I would try using static addresses on all devices (Router and both PCs) and see if it still happens. For more information on static addresses, click the link in my signature referring to tutorials and select the Static IP Address tutorial. Hope this helps.
