Like a big list of details and settings, with the drop down box. Then i believe it was the speed settings. Just go through them til you see it say auto negotiation on the right.. Yours is probably set to auto-negotiation. Mine was too and for some reason it wouldn't connect ****.. click the drop down and change that to 100mps full duplex. It worked for me, I had the same problem. I even reinstalled windows and still nothing, but this fixed it. Give it a shot and let me know if it works.."
I can confirm that it was set to auto-negotiation. I changed it to 100mbs full duplex and will check back/report back if it does work. As I had listed in my symptoms I can be on the internet for several hours and then it will give network cable unplugged with the Red Icon with an X. I can unplug the cable and often the problem would not be solved even if i unplugged the cable. However the problem seems to disappear quickly or within a short time and then everything seems to be fine.

Yeah I had the same problem. It was killing me, it was so frustrating. I spent a few hours trying to figure it out then finally worked. Hope it works for you too

Hey 45nm, any news on the nic? Still giving you trouble?

Yes both seem to have finally died. I don't want to go through the Hassle of an RMA and I will be considering parting with both the CPU and the Motherboard to either an 1100T Build or a 2600K Build. I will neither invest in a Rampage III Extreme motherboard since 1366 will be a socket that will be phased out with LGA 2011.

Just another update. I seemed to have ruled out the Onboard NIC's. They are actually working as they should be. It was the Cat5e cable that was the issue. I replaced it with another Cat5e and It is working as it should. However I will be looking into purchasing a Belkin Cat6 cable. It was something as simple as that I had overlooked during the troubleshooting phase.
