Media state disconnected

w^rl0rdw^rl0rd Member Posts: 329
If a user gets a "media state disconnected" error on his LAN connection but not with a different machine on the same cable and jack and he doesn't get the error from other jacks, what could the problem be?

This rules out the NIC, cable, and jack.

Any ideas? I'm stumped.

    I've got a similar problem on my laptop, doesn't matter whether the cable is plugged into something or not, it just will not work.

    Try doing the following (Doesn't work for me, but is worth a shot)

    1. Uninstall the network adapter.
    2. Restart your computer.
    3. Let the computer reinstall the network adapter.
    4. Try and connect to a network again.

    I'd replace the cable to be sure. I've seen them do weird things...
