are you connecting to a router or directly to the modem?

Try a different ethernet cable in case the one you are using is faulty

Make sure that all the correct drivers are installed for the network adapter.

For the toolbars, run a spyware scanner such as Adaware from click here

Is anyone else on the network connecting another modem at times? I believe that this can cause the sort of problems you are experiencing.

no other people connect to it it just randomly says a network cable has been unplugged?? i connect directly to the modem.

If you are still using the Black Teryon modems, the prob is with the modem.

Have same setup as you with the modem keep disconecting.

Phoned NTL and they sent an engineer round to change modem for the new type they use.

I thought it might be my Eth card or cable and changed them just in case, but this made no difference.

New Modem solved the prob completly.

The reason why is that the old modem has such a narrow Db drop out signal +-.4 Db that any disruptance in the line signal caused it to fail and disconct. The new one has a +- 1.5 Db allowance, and considering the attenuation is only 4-5 db to start with it allows a much higher variation to occur before drop out occurs.
