Net work connection issues

When i turn my pc on, it takes a long time to connect to the network, however when i am finally connected. I still cannot get online, i have to either unplug and re-plug my Ethernet cable from my router, or go into network adapter, enable it, and then disable it (although sometimes it works the other way around, e.g i disable it and then enable it). What do you think could be causing these problems?

  3. Remove network drivers in device manager, reboot, then reinstall your network drivers.

    It's not unheard of for a NIC to go bad. I'm assuming you're using a NIC built into your Asus mainboard. It's not unheard of for an ethernet cable or router to go bad, either.

    I'd probably start by replacing the ethernet cable AND plug the new cable into a different port on the router. If that doesn't help, try adding a new NIC to the computer. Even a cheap one.

    If still a problem, try a different router.

    From what you've posted, my money is on a bad NIC.
  5. davec80 is right, but 90% of the time I've usually seen things go bad within Windows.

    What router are you using?

    If my previous suggestion does not work, plug your computer directly into modem, or try that first.

    Ok, i uninstalled my network driver, i then rebooted and reinstalled it, the internet began to work and i no longer needed to that unplug and plug Ethernet thing, however when i rebooted my computer, the problem came back, however the time my pc took to connect to the internet decreased which solved one of the problems which is good, but the other problem still exists.
  11. That's strange, something must might be causing this, what have you installed in the last 3 months?

    Did you try the modem only? Another Ethernet cable?

    i have installed quite a few programs, i will try another Ethernet cable, also, i have a program called bonjour on my pc, i have deleted it now, but some people were saying that this might have caused the problem, it might still be in my registry.
