    I got my dsl modem like a month ago and its been EXCELLENT. Fast speed, never disconnects, its great. But i dont know whats hapenning now cuz every once in a while, it disconnects and i get a message that popups on the taskbar that says "a network cable has been unplugged". What i do is i either unplug and then plug one of the cables that are connected to the modem (like the phone cable or the power cable) and then it works again. What can be causin this if i am not unpluggin anything why am i gettin this message and why might it be disconnecting? Thanks in advance.

    Sounds like your LAN card needs updated to a new version of firm/software. Failing that, your LAN card may need to be totally replaced is it may be at fault itself.

    its not happenin anymore. I havent done anything. Guess it was a lil bug or somethin. I dont think its my LAN card cuz its new. I got a new one with my dsl internet to avoid any problems. So i doubt thats it. If its somethin its the cable, but i dont understand why it disconnects and reconnects? doesnt make sense to me.
