  1. can anyone help me here pls

    In noticed that when i plug my ethernet cord in the LAN ethernet intergrated port my local area connection 2 keeps connecting and disconnecting. It tries to connect for about 12sec then it tries to reconnect for about 5-6sec, and this keeps doing that same process over and over. I have noticed in the back the amber light blinks every 3sec and the green light is solid. Do you think the port is about the fail or can i have any suggestion? I also reset the modem and disconnect the cable and put plug them back in.

    Do you have another ethernet cable to test with the modem and your computer? It could be a faulty wire in the cable. =)

    Also, what are your computer specs? Have you downloaded the latest networking drivers for your computer?

    no i don't have a ethernet cable but i using the same cable to test a other computer and it works no problem at all. I really thinking it's the ethernet port that's not working.

    You could try disabling the port and re-enabling it to reset it. Go to Network Connections and right click on it, chose Disable, wait a few seconds then enable again.
