When i ping on one of my PC's i get a request timed out error...

I'm having spontanious connection failures which cure for a minute or two after rebooting the same machine...

I'm tight to the end-o-the-month and need conformation that i need a new NIC...

any sugestions, thanks in advance...

I presume you have already tried reinstalling it(having deleted it in safemode+device manager)and its driver.Is there an updated driver for it? I had a NIC that misbehaved in a similar fashion,although once disconnected reboots wouldn't get it to connect again.

cheers for the info, have tried windaes update but no drivers reported as it's a cheapo Plug n Pray NIC under 2000/Xp, may just replace it then...thanks again...

Windows UP...!?!"
