NIC Problems

Posted on 2005-04-25

I had this problem with Server 2k & Now 2003 Server is doing the same.  My NIC card seems like it is disconnecting and reconnecting it self to the network every 5 to 25 seconds. I have tried another NIC card and checked for the latest firmware for the NIC & it is still doing the same thing, if it matters the NIC is a 3c905B-TX 10/100. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Thank You

    Try to see if the settings on your switch and NIC are the same when it comes to speed. That means if you NIC settings says 10 Mbits and switch is set to 100 Mbits you will have disconections.
