Good afternoon;
I'm running Windows XP (EP3) on Intel Core 2 Quad CPU, Q6700 @ 2.66GHz with 2GB Ram.
Model of my modem is Motorola SB5100, Int.Provider is comcast and my Router is Linksys Wireless-N and my network adapter is NVIDIA nForce Networking Controller (with latest driver).

My Laptop, second desktop (connected wireless to router) and ps3 connection works without any problem. However my desktop (connected to router with Ethernet cable) is constantly dropping internet connection and picking it back up after 2-3 min (If I'm lucky). Meanwhile Computer is sending data but it's not receiving data on local area connection icon.
I will appreciate for any kind of help.

Try booting in Safe Mode with Networking and see if it still drops the connection.

I did boot it in safe mode with Networking, however I was having same problem. Also it takes approximately 4-5 minutes for my system to start having internet connection after I start windows.

Can any other computer get a good ethernet connection to the router with the same cable and using the same LAN port?

I was able to connect my laptop (with same cable and same LAN port) and run it without a connect problem for last 10 minutes.

Let's try these repairs first ...

(From a JohnWill post)

TCP/IP stack repair options for use with Windows XP with SP2 or SP3.

Start, Run, CMD, OK to open a command prompt.

Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults: netsh winsock reset catalog

Reset TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ip reset reset.log

Reboot the machine.
