Network Cable Unplugged

Hi

Is it possible to disable the 'Network Cable Unplugged' error message, using Windows 2000 & XP with the BT Home Network 1200.

Error only shows up on the W2K Machine.


Regards.

On XP:

Start > Control Panel > Click "Network Connections" > Double click your network > Click "Properties" > Untick the "Show icon in notification area when connected" box

I think that should fix it. Not too sure about 2000 - could be exactly the same.

Thx for the reply

But this error only pops up on WINDOWS 2000, ive disabled the network icons on both machines, it may be a conflict between the 2 operating systems or something to that effect.

This could also be a faulty network card. Try moving the card to another slot or if using a laptop try another card or cable

I have had this problem with W2K and it was a faulty network card (although it did work on occasion). Have you tried another card?

disabling the message wont solve the problem. It is normaly settings on the network card which are at fault. if you are connecting to another pc which has a 10meg card in and you set yours to 100 meg this would do it.

A lot of cards have hundreds of setting on them so its hard to advise but setting everything to auto is a good start

Prob sorted put W2K on both machines. By the way dont have a network card on either machine.

Using the BT HOME NETWORK 1200 which runs via telephone sockets around the home.

thanks for all the replies people.
