Network adapter stops working....

My server will all the sudden lose its net connection.  Other computers on the network stay connected fine, but the server cannot even hit the router....  This is a small little network.  It is like the adapter just flakes out.  I have looked for updates but it says my PC is up to date.

Any ideas??

Could be the adapter is bad. Try a PCI NIC. Also try using another Ethernet cable, or try another port on the Switch. If it is a managed switch, check it's logs, and also check the server's eventlog.
