it keeps saying the connection between the modem and the computer is broken. I've installed a new ethernet cable. it works then it drops. we have hughes net here. the techs have been out and cannot isolate the problem.
If you are using the nvidia network shield, active armor or whatever their software is called, uninstall it. Don't confuse this with the LAN drivers, as it's a seperate utility. This has caused problems in the past.
