Network cable unplugged/Unknown Internet Connection Sharing = LAN instability

Network cable unplugged ; Nevermind I fixed it!

Yay me :)

Installed updated driver for device and voila ... all the badness I had created was wiped away.

Drivers: needed for personality problems, too.


So, here's the story ... Trying to burn a DVD directly from Adobe Premiere, I kept seeing "device not ready". I searched and found "Things & Software to avoid when authoring DVD" BJMoose - 06:21am Jul 2, 2004 Pacific [from a post by Neil Wilkes - last edited July 27, 2004].

I followed those instructions but still wasn't able to change the DVD recognition.

I also followed instructions to "organize" my Programs menu generously provided in the Windows application section here.

And then my local area network connection stopped working. The icon message says A network cable is unplugged, but I know that's a not-very accurate message. I can't find any remedies. I walked around and checked all connections. As you know, that didn't work.

I "rolled back" (forgot the word) to the settings of the previous day to undo the changes I made, pushed and clicked a few things, rebooted a few times, and voila ... a second connection appeared and I was good to go. Mysterious. But working. Naturally being an amateur user I was satisfied.

But now it's happened again. I was using Yahoo Chat, had two Firefox browsers open ... including a youtube song by the Scorps (not that it matters), and suddenly it all went quiet.

I have tried to create a second local area network with the wizard and see that I'm using "Unknown Internet Connection Sharing". Or not. *sigh*

And I can burn a CD, but not a DVD. Grrr ... is it possible I did this all for naught since the DVD-ROM is only a reader not a player? Bah.

TIA for your assistance with the LAN issue.
