We have 7 IP vivotek cameras, a PoE Switch, a DSL modem from ISP and a computer that has the software ST7501 installed on it, this computer has a static IP and eventually this computer shows "null or limited connection", if I unplug and plug network cable works again without problem, I have tried putting this cable directly to ISP modem, but the problem is still present, what could be happening?

The computer has windows 7 Professional.

Thanks in advance

I would check the BIOS and OS for any sleep settings, because it sounds like the system powers down after a while.

You mean sleep settings of NIC or operating system or both?

I mean both, and check for any powering down options in the BIOS that might be active.

I will check those options and I´ll let you know.

I was wondering If the speed of the NIC (10/100) has something to do with the speed of the LAN (10/100/1000).

It sounds like the issue is almost certainly the power settings, as Callandor noted.    As for your last question, the difference in the NIC speed (10/100) vs. your router (10/100/1000) doesn't matter -- it simply means the system doesn't operate at gigabit speed since the NIC doesn't support it.

I disabled all options of energy and the NIC failed again, I have installed another NIC in a PCI-E port since a 4 days ago without failing.

I have to mention that I disabled all energy shutdown or hibernating options in this new NIC as you said before.

Are you saying you installed another NIC in the same machine, and it works?  That would point to the original NIC having a hardware problem, and it should be replaced.
