Problems keeping a constant connect to the router Print
This is typically an issue with older 10/100BaseT network cards. The problem is the older cards have a hard time establishing a connection speed with the router unit.You can resolve this issue by locking down the speed of your Ethernet card.
To correct this problem in WINDOWS XP
Step 1 Go to Start> Control Panel > and select Network connections.
Step 2 Right click on your network card (for 2000 and XP only)and select Properties.
Step 3 Select the Configure button.
Step 4 Under the Advanced tab you will see two boxes; Property and Value.
Note: Depending on the type of Ethernet card you are using the headings in the Property box will be slightly different.
Step 5 Select each heading in the Properties box until the Value box displays the speed of your Ethernet card (it will look like this: Auto-Negotiation, 10Mb Full, 100 MB Half, etc..). You want to select 10mb Full Duplex.
Step 6 Keep clicking OK until you get to the desktop. Your computer may ask you to reboot depending on the version of Windows you are running.
