    is your IP address correct for the subnet your on ?
    are you using dhcp ?? is the dhcp server listening ?
    Is the cable plugged in at the other end ?
    Is the network card enabled within windows ?
    Is there an IP conflict ?
    Is the driver the correct version ?


    Try those questions for starters
    It is Inevitable.....

    Something that I've seen cause similar probs is power management. Go to Start, All Programs, Accessories, Communications, Network Connections. Right-click on the network connection corresponding to your LAN connection and choose Properties. Your adapter will be shown, with a Configure... button next to it. Click that, go to the Power Management tab, and untick the Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power tickbox. OK everything, and see if that helps.
