GENERAL NETWORKING ANNOYANCES

LINK LED ON AND OFF

The Annoyance:

Why does my Internet connection keep cutting in and out?

The Fix:

You've probably got a bad Ethernet cable that is wreaking havoc with your network connection. If you watch the link LED at your Ethernet port, I'll bet that you see the light flicker on and off. Simply replace the damaged Ethernet cable. You could also try connecting the NIC to a different port on the switch or hub.
