Thread: Cable drops network card out

  1. #1


    Got a system that runs Bigpond cable thru a Realtek 10/100 Nic + bigpond's modem on Windows XP. The connection runs for a while, but then drops out and won't reconnect. Only way to get it back is to uninstall the network card driver, then redetect the card. It will then work for a bit and the same thing happens. I have tried a different network card (one with a Davicom chip), the usb thing that smelltra supplied, a mate's cable modem, using bpalogin instead of the Telstra login, and doing a full reload, getting the driver updates from windowsupdate. Nothing seems to help - any suggestions? The system is:

    Pentium III 1gig Coppermine
    Abit ST6 mobo
    256mb PC133
    Geforce2 MX200 with 28.32 drivers
    10/100 Realtek nic
    My Box:
    Intel Pentium 4 2.4C @ 2.7
    DFI 875P Lanparty
    512Mb Geil PC3500 Dual Channel (Cas 2-6-3-3 @450MHz DDR)
    Leadtek A280 Geforce4 4200 MyVIVO
    Audigy DE
    1 x 73Gb Seagate fibre channel 10krpm (boot drive) with LSI HBA
    1x80Gig Seagate Barracuda ATA V
    1x120Gig Western Digital 8mb cache
    Spiffy Antec Super Lanboy (LED fan and UV light)

    Do you have a firewall installed? If so, configure the firewall to allow the Telstra "heartbeat" through - if you don't then it will constantly drop out after about 5 minutes :(

    I've forgotten the exact port needed so ask one of the other BPA users here :)
    What came first - Insanity or Society?
