I have a new D-Link DI-624 wireless router hard-connected to a new Dell w/ XP. The internet provider is Time Warner (Roadrunner) Cable. The connection will work fine for a day or two, then seem to degrade where I see the "A network cable is unplugged" message pop up every minute or so.

I called D-Link but they can't figure it out. Following a lead on another thread from JamesO, here's my ipconfig info:

Windows IP Configuration

Any help would be appreciated!

Since he's connected to the router, I can't imagine how the ISP is going to be able to help. Unless they support the router, they're either going to refuse to help or charge him for the call.

Are you connected wirelessly or wired? Please describe all of the equipment connected to the router.

The PC is connected wired. I've got the Time Warner cable modem connected to the DLink router, which is wired to the Dell Dimension PC.

Try forcing the NIC to 10Mbps Full Duplex and/or do a Windows Update and select Custom and see if there is any Hardware Updates for the Intel NIC, my guess is there probably will be an update??

And are you sure the Network Disconnect message is for the wired and not the wireless connection.

Post your Dell Modem and wireless card info as I bet you have a Intel wireless 2100 or 2200 that needs a firmware update!
