  1. Hi guys, i have recently received a message telling me that a network cable is unplugged. Usually i have this problem with local area connection 2, but it always resolves itself while this one does not. I have tried unplugging my dlink and plugging it back in. please give me any suggestions! Sorry if this sounds dumb to you, much appreciated!

    Are using a laptop or desktop, if your on a laptop will say that because your not plugged in the LAN on your laptop which you do not need if it is wireless, but if it is your desktop and you are connect to your router it could be that the NIC card is at fault go into device manager to see if there is any problems with NIC card.

    1.Also check your network cables make sure they are in secure.

    2. Make sure your network adapter is up to date and working.

    this symptopm is most frequently a consequence of a bad driver.

    find the NIC and/or wireless adaptors in the device manager; delete the drivers.
    reboot the system and let windows perform auto-discovery.

    if that fails, the use the make/model info to download fresh copies
