Ok guys I've tried everything and exhausted my knowledge here so I hope someone here knows a lot more than I do so I can get this problem fixed. Otherwise the only thing I can think of is that this motherboard is dying and I need a new one? I formatted my hard drive because windows would not boot, I assume it somehow became corrupted. After reinstallation of windows as always I had to reinstall my network card drivers, the Intel Pro/1000 CT which is onboard with my Intel D875PBZ MB. Now the card worked fine before the format. Now here's where it gets weird. Sometimes the internet works, sometimes it doesn't. Reinstalling drivers will have the internet work for 5minutes, maybe an hour. Restarting will sometimes have it working for a short time also. Sometimes I also get a code 10 error stating that windows cannot properly communicate with the device. Thought I'd add here that certain programs are able to connect to the internet at times for example Steam (used for counterstrike) but during this time IE will not work. Or MSN, AIM will work but IE will not. Ok so now after all this I move back home 4 hours away from my college. Same problem (which isn't really a surprise). So I assume my network card is fried somehow on the motherboard. Buy a new one. A Cicero 10/100 Fast Ethernet Adapter. Now the hardware should be automatically detected by windows to install but it was not. So I manually installed the hardware and drivers. Guess what? Code 10 error again, only this time it will not move at all from this code 10 error. So I think disabled the OnBoard LAN in the BIOS thinking that somehow there was a hardware conflict. Same problem. So I uninstalled the drivers and moved the Cicero card to a different PCI slot and to my surprise windows automatically detected the card and had the drivers installed. So now I was thinking I was in the clear. I was wrong...even with the new card correctly installed I had all my previous connectability problems the exact same as the OnBoard Card. Scanned for a bootsector virus using Norton 2004 with all the updates even though this was a fresh install. Ok so now as a last ditch effort I decided to flash the motherboard BIOS with the latest version. Did that successfully and still didn't fix the problem. Thanks in advance everyone.
