Always get network cable is unplugged message after rebooting computer

I ma an MSI 6100-M9 motherboard with 2Gb nenory abd an ioterin 170
dual processor. For some reason when I reboot my computer, I always
get "Always get network cable is unplugged message after rebooting
computer". THe motherboard chipset is based on NForce 410.


To fix the problem it is sufficient to disable and re-enable the
network connection in Network Connections. This would seem to indiacte
the calbe is fine.

I have tryied adjusting the speed and duplex of the network adaptor
with no luck.

Any ideas?

check for new drivers
what are you connecting TO? what is supplying DHCP addressing or is
it a static?

The ethernet adaptor is on the motherboard (Nvidia NForce). I am using
the latest Nvidia drivers. The PC WinXP Home is connected to a
Trendent gigabit switch wthat is connected to a TrendNet router.

Addressing is DHCP

Can you please check event logs for any info that might help
diagnose. Take a look at
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/325487/en-us as well.

There is nothing in the event log indicating a problem. I tried the
newest NForce drivers, the Nforce drivers from the motherboard
manufacturers website. Nothing worked.

As I indicated earlier, if I reboot the computer, the network always
comes back as netwrok cable is unplugged. All I need to do is disable
the connection and re-enable it and the network connection start
working correctly. I even tried a different cable but no luck.

I've seen posts on the nvidia forums regarding jumbo frame settings
and the unplugged message. It may be worth your while to post this
issue there.

Hi Barb you seem to know what you're talking about, so can I restate the
problem which I outlined before this thread kind of wandered off into
solving someone else's problem... :-|
for me, NOTHING will cure the "unplugged" message except rebooting the
modem--disabling and re-enabling definitely doesn't work. In fact, for what
it's worth, if I disable it in the Network CP when it's working properly,
and then try re-enabling, it also does not work, and the modem has to be
rebooted (maybe this indicates something!!!).

As for the other suggestions--bad cable, modem, etc--remember my internet
connection works just wonderfully..sometimes for weeks and weeks... until I
reboot the computer. And when I reboot the modem, it ALWAYS works just fine
again right away. Could there be one little hardware/firmware problem with
the modem that it fails to, say, respond to some command the OS gives after
reboot? Or vice versa--the same thing failing in the network adapter?

{Win XP Home SP2
Dell Dimension 9150 PentiumD 3 Ghz
onboard Intel(R) PRO/1000 PL network adapter
ISP: Shaw Cable (Canada)
Terayon Terapro TCM200 cable modem: coaxial cable going in; ethernet cable
going out to computer network port; no switches on it, just the standard 4
indicator lights. I have no idea if there are any config options on it or
how I can access them. }

if you are plugged directly into the modem (PLEASE protect yourself
and buy a router) and rebooting the modem works, every time - then
it could be anything, possibly a problem with the autosensing of the
connection speed in the modem. You might try setting the speed of
the NIC to 10mbps half duplex. Then, when everything is working,
disable and re -enable. Same problem or not?
