OK, for the last 3-4 weeks ive had some conncetion issues. meaning, i loose connection on my network at random times. ahppens alot with online games or just browsing the internet. what i have done to try and fix the problem. -I normally use the onboard NIC when this started happening. i then installed a NETGEAR NIC that worked in the past doing the same thing. - I have changed Ports on the router (which is a Dlink 520 wireless. i am not wireless) - I have changed out 4 different CAT5 cables. another weird thing is that if i do loose my interenet connection, i can still see my network and browse with in it. ive gone to the point of reinstalling the OS but that didnt help. I am running an ASUS K8n mobo.
