Hopefully someone can help me with my issues.
It started about 2 weeks ago:
Computer would constantly tell me the internet cable had become disconnected (this happened like every 3 to 5 minutes). A week later it stopped connecting to the internet all together. ** Internet connected through a router, my second CPU did not have this issue**. I disconnect the router and connect directly to the modem, it seemed to work fine until Monday. Now when ever I run everquest when I log off it says I have lost connectivity and I have to reregistier my Norton anti virus again. It's a pop up menu and I think it's been there the whole time I have been playing.
Any help would be greatly apperciated.
make sure you have adaware se run that about 2 times a month. After that it could be the network card going bad. You can try a replacement. PCI network cardas are cheap and easy to install.
Tonight I will open up the case and clean it out and see if that helps. Also I did use the same cable and the alert, telling me the cable has become disconnect did go away. With the Nortons I always disable the firewall when ever I play EQ or other internet games.
A little history on this problem, about 2 months ago the same thing happened and I reformatted and it went away for awhile. My wife loaded Limewire on the CPU could I have gotten some form of connectivty virus from there?
Thanks again I apperciate the input!!!
