    Just randomly while I was on the internet my network connection icon on the taskbar said something along the lines of "this connection has limited or no connection." I did a regular and hard reset on the router and still nothing. The odd thing is, the internet DOES work if I am directly plugged into the cable modem... While the router is connected, the internet connection is disabled (in network connections) and I can hit enable but doing so goes through a process that say connecting > connected, but then the prompt goes away and it still says disabled... any ideas?

    Edit:

    Using Windows XP w/SP2

    Sounds like
    A) The cable is going to heck
    or
    B) The port on either the router or on your computer is screwed up.

    I get this on wireless about every day all I have to do is click the repair button, and it works fine. Hope that helps

    Oops... thought I posted a reply to this, but it must of just been adding to reputation. Fenis-Wolf was absolutely correct, the router port died, I went through so much trouble, hehe.
