I am using a Shuttle XPC SK43G http://eu.shuttle.com/en/desktopdefault.aspx/tabid-72/170_read-4105/ . I have installed Windows 2000 and am having problems with the onboard NIC. I am intermittently seeing the message "Network Cable Unplugged". The onboard NIC is a Realtek 8100B. I have installed the LAN drivers that are on the motherboard CD, and a set of LAN drivers from the Realtek website, and also used the default Microsoft drivers, but still get the same result.
Sometimes the network connection is fine, but at other times I see the error message. I have tried installing Windows XP, and get the same result.
This has happened on 4 different PC's now, and I'm sure it is software related rather than faulty equipment.
Has anyone had a similar experience?
