every second or so my NIC's status keeps changing
like:
10Mbps
100Mbps
unplugged
100Mbps
(10 seconds later)
unplugged
10Mbps
aquiring network address
100Mbps
(10 seconds later)
unplugged
100Mbps
unplugged
100Mbps
ect....


its annoying me to no end.

the cable connecting the 2 comptuer is my special 20m cat6 cable
which up till 2min ago was working perfectly
it was connected via my switch, but that was sayign it wasnt connected at all

[edit]

Have you checked to make sure the cable isn't the problem? e.g the wires havent come loose in the RJ45 plug?

i blame my cpu/ram/mobo
i think it was caused when i changed the cas timings on my ram from 3.0 to 2.5
changing it back to 3.0 fixed it, and changing it to 2.0 fixed it.
although now my ram is onyl runnign at 166mhz instead of 200mhz, then again 166 is my fsb so its not like im missing out on anythign, or am i?

try setting your ram to auto detect (eg standard)
if it still happens try another lan cable, then lan card

I guess changing your ram latency and also upping your ram to 200mhz was probably also speeding up the PCI bus which could cause the NIC to go mad

my ram usualy runs at 200mhz, but when i changed the timings for some reason it just went down to the fsb, but aslong as it work now, im happy =D
