Network cable faulty

My pc is connected to a network.
Whenever the cable at the hub is touched or moved, my pc is disconnected from the network. A laser printer is also in the network, so I am unable to print my documents. What should I do about the cable connection?

Have you tried a new patch cable?
How many ports does your hub have?

it could also be the port you're plugged into at the hub - try moving the cable to another hub port.

thanks to everyone of you who replied my questions. Anyway I had the cable properly crimped by a network cabling person who said that the cable lines were not properly connected.

Deleting a correctly answered Q is not in the spirit of E-E!

mrorange suggested that the cable was bad and it was so he/she should get the points.

Yes, I agree with Mark!  I didn't realize that the question had been answered correctly.  AND I also thought it was the questioner asking for the question to be removed.  Sorry for the mixup.

Actually, I think mrorange should go ahead and post his comment as the answer as it is obviously correct.

mrorange
the points I gave should be 10 points not 1 as shown above.
So could mrorange be given 10 points?

Iris,

After a question has been answered, it becomes worth 10% of the original value so that others can view previously asked questions and only spend 10% of the points they normally would for a current question.

In other words, mrorange got 10 points :-)

Cheers!

mrorange got the full amount of the points or even more depending on the grade you gave. The points awarded are multiplied by the "GPA" you grade. An A is 4x, B 3x, etc.

Welcome to E-E!
