 "a network cable is unplugged" message


having 2 pc's both with 2 Realtek RTL8139 ethernet
adapter's, operating with windows xp and  windows 98

the first time i tryed to establish a network connection
with internet sharing, things worked fine, but since six
month, i was unable to establish any connection, and i got
always the message "a network cable is unplugged" from
winXp.... despite the fact that i have disabled the
Internet Connection Sharing....

i am sure that both ethernet adapter's and my twisted Rj45
cable work fine, - tested with other computer's -, i have
update the driver, check up connections..

i guess that the problem comme frome WindowsXp ?????????

if any body has a suggestion!! he's welcome...

Don't know if you are still watching this thread, but I had the same

going to device mgr, uninstalling the device (network card), and re-booting.
Upon startup WinXP found the "new" NIC, installed drivers, and -Voi La- all
was cured!

I checked the hardware manager, but it said everything was hunky dory...
...eventually moving the nic to a spare pci bus slot did the trick and I was
up and running again.
However, this morning the same thing happened again. Fortunately the same
fix worked, but I'm not looking forward to changing the nic around every few
