Hi. I have a slight problem with my internet connection. Sometimes, when attempting to log on, my browser will not be able to find any web pages. After a while I will receive a message about my local area connections stating that a network cable is unplugged. After searching my cables I can't find one that is actually unplugged but soon after the message appears my internet connection will enable itself again anyway, all on its own. Have you ever heard of or experienced a computer that acts this way? Any help is much appeciated. Thanks in advance.

Justin,
The only time that happens to me is when the cable actually was off or not tight. Check your cables, each and every one to make sure they are tight. If they are and you continue to have those problems, you may need to bring it it for a technician to look at.

You might also want to check the cable itself. Is it crimped anywhere? Sporadic problems are usually a sign of a bad cable.
