I did a fresh install of Windows XP on a Pentium III w/256MB RAM, VIA mother board, etc.  After the computer is on for about 2 days, I suddenly am no longer able to connect to my internal network or internet via the NIC card.  When reviewing the Device Manager tab, I noted an 'ERROR 22' appeared in the NIC properties, where it also showed the item had been disabled.  This has happended about three times in the past week.  I am able to enable it and it works without a reboot.

I have scanned for viruses, etc...but nothing.

Can anyone suggest a possible cause/resolution?

Are you sure that your network wire isn't loose or frayed?  The NIC could also be failing.  Try another machine on the same node, and another NIC if that doesn't show problems.

move the NIC to another PCI slot on your mobo.

If the problem persists, download new drivers for your NIC or check Windows Update for newer drivers.

Lastly, try another NIC.
