network problem under win xp

ive got a big problem, when i connect my laptop (compaq armada m700) to a LAN it sometimes says "a network cable is disconnected" but when i pull it out, then at first it makes an annoying sound and says the same thing. but when im at home there is no problem.

the networks dosent differs from wich i have at home.

so, the cable is connected and the connectors is OK but all traffic just stops and the poput ballon says "a network cable is disconnected"

anyone got the same problem?
You might ask a mod to move this to networking... you will probably get more help there.
Are you using a patch cable to hook into the LAN's that you bring along yourself? Sounds like it could be a bad cable/connector.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
