LAN Connection is disabled.

By maxmoua ·
I have a customer who is using a Thinkpad T23 with port replicator.
Windows 2K SP2
Every couple of months his LAN connects is automaticly disabled. He has no ISP applications installed onto the laptop. Does anyone know why out of the blue Windows would disable his LAN connection?

I don't know if this is your problem or not, but I had a customer with this problem. They had the icon enabled to show when the LAN was active. I turned it off and the problem went away. I can only guess that someone was thinking it was an internet connection and would right click it and disable it thinking they were disconnecting from the internet. Or perhaps there is a bug in WIN2K that treats it similar to an unused Internet connection.

we sometimes experience that kind of problem in the office. oftentimes, a user complains that his pc cannot log in the network and only after an investigation, it turns out that the network adapter has been disabled. i can only surmise that the problem relates to the way the adapter installed behaves whenever it detects a problem with the connection, necessitating the need for the adapter to be in a disabled state so as to allow the operating system to function normally.
