Wired LAN connectivity problems

  aca 20:34 28 Feb 2008

Have a Netgear Modem/Router DG834PN

Have 3 desktops connected 2 via wired LAN, 1 via wireless and a further laptop via wireless.

One of the LAN connected PC's keeps getting connectivity issue, and loses internet etc. All others fine

It is intermittent and have tried following which do seem to get things working but only for a period of time.

1) Have unistalled/reinstalled adapter via Device Manager

2) Rebooted/powered down router

3) Updated router firmware

4) Rebooted PC

5) Stopped software firewall I run (Sygate)

any ideas/solutions please?

Check cables, connectors and sockets

Y done that, the PC in question is right next with short cable.

Wonder whether it is the cable and worth swapping?
