Net conn swicht plugged-unplugged.

By julioairizar ·
Hi! I have a Compaq Laptop with Windows XP Home Ed., that was working fine, but suddenly the Network icon in Systry begin to show a message with plugged/unplugged text. I try changing the cables, drivers, connecting directly to the swicht and to the router, cleaning the metallic contacts, but nothing help. Any ideas?
Thanks

If you have other network cards (like wireless) disable them. Check for any driver updates, and install the latest driver. Ping the loopback (127.0.0.1) to see if Windows thinks the card works fine. Then repost with more info.

I think the Network card is bad, or going bad. If It's built into the Main board [many are], then you may need to install a "PCMCIA" card through the side and link through the net that way. Good luck!
