cable connects and disconnects

Hi. I have a problem with my internet connection. On my local area connection it shows cable unpluged and then enabled every second. I tried multiple cables and the problem still persists. Before i had this problem my pc wouldn't boot so i removed the round battery on the mobo for a few minutes to reset the bios. I don.t think that has to do anything with the intenet problem though. Please help

Welcome to Seven Forums,

From your computer's Device Manager, fiddle with the 'Link Speed & Duplex' setting (by default it's on Auto Negotiation) of your Ethernet adapter. Feel free to change and test it out after. See image attached.

10 Mbps will be too slow, have you tried the 100 Full Mbps?

What's the exact error about the IP?

Will this cable work to extend coaxial cable for cable box?
Getting a new TV and placing it in a different spot than where the old TV is and I realized the coaxial cable coming from the wall isn't going to reach the new location for cable box's "Cable IN" connection. Can I use this as an extension? It looks right to me but I just want to be sure.

Router connects, but cable modem is unidentified.
Hey there. I'm wanting to connect my PC straight to my cable modem, but the only way for me to connect to the net is through my router. For some reason, when I connect my cable modem via ethernet straight to my PC, it isn't identified. Help please?
