symptoms: keep getting popup message saying network cable unplugged-local area connection blah blah blah...i had cable people out to the house to fix my low signal strength. I upgraded to 5megs speed, but was never able to get more than 2.9. My wireless networked laptop downstairs however gets 5megs easily. I thought my NIC card was bad in my desktop, but the repair shop said it was a bad slot, moved it one over, works yet problems continue. I have tried different cables too!
Dunno-I think it is time to replace the computer. Pent 3 866 upgraded to Win Xp. Motorola SB4100 & Linsys Wireless-B router,etc all firmware, driver updated.
Your diagnosis please?
thanks in advance, MikeM
