On my network card I have a "a network cable is unplugged" messege. The cable is plugged in. I first got this messege after installing Fedora Core 3 on a seperate partition. Since it the internet connection didn't work I took Fedora off and Re-Installed Win XP Home edition. I have this running off a router; the router is connected to another PC, running SuSE linux. I had this same problem on the other computer, but I fixed it after installing SuSE and tweeking. (bad luck). I think something got messed up in either the re-sizing of the partition (111gb to 85gb) to make room for Fedora. All I have on the computer now is XP home. I need XP, It is a shame that 3d games dont run on linux, even though I like linux and am using it to type this messege. By the way. I had both of the computers working fine off the same internet connection after i fixed the old one and before i messed up the new one.
