Lan disconnects while visiting certain websites

In response to question Q_20418688.html
 
I too have a local area connection problem with both of my computers. When I visit certain websites my local area connection will become unplugged for about 1 minute at a time. It says a network cable has become unplugged. I know it's not the power supply that causes the problem because it happens on both computers and my newest computer has a 450w Antec power supply. It goes away as soon as I  open the network connections, right click on local area connection select properties and select ok. Why does this happen? What can I do to correct this minor irratation?

Forcing the IC's to 100mbit full did not work. I have however updated the routers firmware which seems to of so far fixed the problem. I will keep you informed if it has not.

This answer here is a bit off the previous path but there is a little option in Windows XP I have dealt with that can cause issues similar to this.

Follow this path to get to the settings:

Control Panel->System->Hardware->Device Manager->right click on your NIC card properties->Power Management.

On the Power Management tab there is an option to "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" that will be checked by default.  As odd as it may sound I've had this happen in the middle of actually working on the PC.  I don't know if it's a result of the amount of time since the system access the network through the card.

I have this disabled on all of my systems due to similar problems like you have stated with it just "disconnecting" to the network at random.   I'm not sure if this will solve your issue but it sure can't hurt.

GL on getting a resolution.

It looks like I solved the problem by updating the routers firmware.  Thank you for all of the suggestions.
