  1. Hi,
    I have SMC router, i have 2 PCs connected to it, my PC sometimes suddenly lose connectivity with the router ( i can't ping the router ) while the other PC doesn't lost connectivity. The problem can sometimes be solved by just restarting my PC, but last time restarting didn't solved it, i tried uninstall and reinstall my NIC, but it didn't work, so i had to use System Restore which solved the problem. Today i had the problem again.
    I have Nod32 and Super Anti Spyware both updated, no threats found.
    My NIC is Nvidia nForce Networking Connector ( Integrated with the MB ) with the latest driver.

    Thanx....

    Have you swapped the PC cable positions in the router?

    So we know it is your computer that is causing this... But why? Are you running XP? If so, is XP updated to Service Pack 3?
