Repeated Network cable unplugged/Local Area Connection now connect


S

simonc

I've rebooted the ADSL modem, unplugged and replugged all the cables but
still every few seconds the network icon in the system tray changes to one
with a red cross, and the message "A Network cable is unplugged" comes up,
followed a fraction of a second later by a "Local Area Connection is now
connected" message.

Can anyone suggest what might be causing this and where to look for a fix?

Grateful for advice.

I have had this happen with a "marginal," brand new, cat 5e Ethernet patch
cable. Once the cable was replaced everything worked great. Just about
drove me crazy until I found the fix.

Similiar problem here once, Comcast had to come out and replace the cable
coming from the road going to my house. They paid for it.
