I'm having a problem with random disconnects on my desktop. It is connected via ethernet to a Belkin WRTR_159G_v01 which is connected to a Scientific Atlanta DPC2100 I am in the United States with Comcast as my ISP. The affected computer is running windows XP sp2. My LAN card shows up as an Intel PRO/100+ Management adapter. Now that you have my info, here is my problem: every 10 minutes (more or less) I get disconnected from the internet. The disconnects probably only last a few seconds or fractions of a second but it is enough to both knock me off of my IM client and Team Fortress 2. I used to have a problem like this with my onboard LAN. Then I started using a USB wireless adapter. It had problems with disconnections because of how far I am from the router (I assume), the disconnects were much fewer and further between than with the onboard LAN though. But even that wasn't bearable, so then I took this network card out of one of our older computers we aren't using and it worked beautifully for a good 3-4 weeks. Last week is when these problems started. I've already checked to make sure all of my cables are plugged in tight and reset both TCP/IP and WINSOCK to installation defaults. Still no luck. Any idea what the problem is? Does my computer just like to mess up LAN cards?
