    Hi, I looked at many other threads of people getting this "Network Cable Unplugged" problem, but none of them were quite like mine and none of the solutions worked. I have cable internet and am running straight into my modem, no router. I just purchased a new network calbe and still I get this message "Network Cable Unplugged" flickering while on the internet. If an internet application is open the connection is immediately lost. Please Help. It would be greatly appreciated.

    Sounds like either your NIC or the port on the router is defective. Have you tried moving the router port to a different one? If so, consider another NIC, they're only about $10...

    I'm not using a router, and one more thing, sorry for the ignorance, but what does NIC stand for?
