Hi! I am new here but am hoping you guys can help me with a really annoying problem... First let me give you my 'puter specs... Dell Dimension 8250 Windows XP SP3 Alright... I got this computer from a friend for free, and got it all set up. But I found out the built in Ethernet port was not working. So I went out and got a Belkin F5D5000 v2000 Desktop PCI card...installed it and was happily connected to the internet. But I started getting the little pop up window saying "Local Area Connection: A Network Cable is Disconnected" every couple minutes or at random. The cable is the one that came with our DSL modem and I can't see any problems with the connections. I have searched the internet and havent gotten a real answer. I tried unchecking the box for the power option but that didn't help. The odd thing is, somedays it does it constantly, other days only a couple times. I am really annoyed though because I will be talking online and the pop up balloon with appear and I wont be able to hear the person I am talking to for just the duration of the baloon....it doesnt shut me down or log me out but it is just downright annoying. Any ideas? Thanks!
