Default Network connection drops on Asus P5Q Pro

Hey Guys,

Been having off and on Issues with my computer. My network connection seems to drop every once in a while, sometimes after torrenting, but not all the time. At the moment restarting fixes it, but the first time it happened I called my ISP to make sure nothing was wrong on their end (Novus) and when following some troubleshooting steps in the control panel my computer wouldn't let me select menu items when right clicking network adapter icons.

Googling hasn't really shed any light on this, and my Computer has remained in it's current spec for a long time (didn't recently change any hardware sans adding a HDD).

Asus P5Q Pro
4 gigs ram
M audio Delta
1 TB WD Balck
2 TB WD Green

Any insight would be greatly appreciated!

First thing when trouble-shooting a network problem. Change the cable. It's the cheapest and easiest and one of the most common causes of problems.

Other than this is could be a variety of things from a windows update to a driver change to something else installed that may be interfering to the NIC actually dieing.

If the cable doesn't fix the problem then try throwing a dedicated network card in and see if the problem goes away.
