Weird NEtwork Adapter problem (discon-recon)
I just started noticing a few days ago my computer keeps getting brief, split second network disconnections.. like that baloon that pops up whenever you get disconnected from the network? and that network disconnected icon.. it's like my connection to the router gets dropped all of a sudden, but reconnects right away.. but i never experienced this kind of problem before..
Here's my setup:
XP SP2 PC w/ onboard realtek lan capabilities --> Linksys BEFSR Router --> DSL Modem
I've had this setup for years.. never experienced this.. checked all the cables, swapped cables as well, no problem..
when i get disconnected for that split-second to about 2 seconds, i check the router and it's ON.. and did not reboot or anything.. weird..
what could this be? is it the router getting flaky? or is it my mother boarD? any thoughts?
