No internet?

something is up with my computer...at first i thought it was my school connection, but now the same thing is happening at home...

ill be online for a certain amount of time, but then if i have too much activity or download too much, ill get kicked off and not be able to get back on unless i take my cable out and put it back into my motherboard

i have an asus p5p800 any1 have ANY idea what could possibly be goin on...should i get a separate ethernet card and use that instead of the jack on my motherboard?? or is it something within the computer that is bein weird?

Decent NICs don't cost much, might as well give one a try. Make sure you disable the built-in NIC in BIOS, of course.

I've been plagued by this recently. Turns out my wife's machine had a trojan that was trying to infect my machine.

I gave up on the onboard lan on my new GA-K8NF-9 Nforce4 board. Absolute garbage. No possibility for gaming I can tell you that. What I use for nics are incredibly cheap Cnet pro-120 cards. At one point I got a lot of 20 or so of them for $11 off ebay from a business that couldn't get them to work in win98SE. They do work for 98SE, but it's a real pain in the ass to get them working. Under win2K, however, they work from the first time you hit windows. No driver, nothing. Win2K loves them. With nics, $$$$ does not = quality. $$$ = silkscreening their name on a reference board usually.
