    Network Cable

    Locked

    I received a notification that a network cable has been unplugged. This message appeared in the lower-right corner of screen near the task bar.
    What’s wrong?

      The network cable has disconnected from your computer.

      Probably the clip that holds the RJ45 connector into the network card/connection has snapped off.

      Either plug the cable back in or replace the cable.

      Other problem could be that you have multiple network connections. such as multiple NIC’s, USB modem etc. Depending on which network connection is showing disconnected as to whether it is of any concern, usually not especially if you are still able to connect to your LAN.

      Like the other posters said – check your cable in the back of the computer – Also verify that your network card is still enabled in ‘My Network Places.’ (do a properties on your network connection).

      Next, check that your patch in the network closet hasn’t been either unplugged from the switch or even worse, that your patch has come loose from the back of the panel (you will need your network admin for this one)…

      Good luck!

      I don’t have an answer to the question, but I also want to know how to fix the problem. I have checked all the connections, traced back to the cat 5 cable, RJ45 Plug. I have even replaced the connector in the panel where the cat5 comes in. I have tried everything I can think of. It all started when a end-server moved their workstation from one location, room to another room. Now it does not work and it does have the same not connected icon in the system tray. If you can fix this one, let me know.
