    I have a weird problem. I am working in a school, and I get a report that a machine won't connect to the network. When I get to it, it says that the network line is disconnected. So I test the network line by connecting it to a switch and a different pc. It works. Then I used the same network line and the port that it was plugged into and plug it into a different pc. I ping the network card on the local machine and that shows fine. But still it says the network line is disconnected. So I bring it down to my office, plug it in and it works fine. Now if I take it all the way back and plug it in it will work fine. What is causing the trouble.
    It is like it is "plugged up" or something. excuse my reasoning on the plugged up. Any help you could give would be great.

    Maybe those computers are just lonely and like all the attention you give by carrying them to your office and back. :)

    Before trying all those things you described, how about trying:

    1. In Network Connections right click on the connection and select 'repair'; if no go then
    2. Restart the computer; if no go then
    3. Disconnect the cable and then reconnect it.
