Hi,

Recently my computer stopped connecting to the router. the connection icon said that the cable wasent connect. I tested different cables to make sure it wasent the cable, and made sure it was in properly.

Everything else that is connected to the router connects to the net fine. The router light blinks on and off for about a second continuously. If i leave my computer on for a quite a while it will connect eventually. I've checked for windows updates and driver updates but the problem still persists. When i run ipconfig it says "media disconnected" and from what ive seen so far my computer connects to the internet during startup because i can get onto the net using the ASUS express gate.

I'm really out of ideas to try so any suggestions would be greatly appreciated

Thanks,
K33BA

Thanks for posting your solution! Auto speed sensing NIC's work so well but sometimmes they don't so setting to a specific speed like you did will often solve the problem. If you transfer files or other things on your network I would up the speed setting to 100Mbps if it remains stable there.
