Going Link Dead Constantly help

Having a bit of a connection issue with a game. (Dark age of Camelot specifically) I constantly go linkdead and their online support says I should upgrade router firmware (done) and my onboard ethernet drivers. (in process of and I am using onboard lan)

I have an old Asus A8N5X

According to this link I am using Nforce4 drivers so could I safely use these from nvidia?

Here are the links to Mythic support that I read maybe some added info is hidden here: and here:

Also, the support pages mention I use the software Hypertrace to see where I lose the connection.

But what I don't understand is what to do with that information. I used it and it times out after a several jumps. But how does this help.

Thanks any tips would be appreciated. The support pages also recommend leaving onboard ethernet behind and buy a separate nic. Since its an older computer I completely forget what version of the nforce I have and I am not sure if I am doing this correctly

Any thoughts?

Try a different netowrk cable. If using a router take it out of the config to check it. If it still fails buy a pci nic card and see if problem is fixed. If so then its possible the nic is going bad on the motherboard.
