This could be various things:

If it shows network cable unplugged then plugged after, its the cable or loose at the router

If you ADSL light light goes off and on, then it could be the router.


Do elaborate and I might be able to help further :)

Potentially a line fault with your ADSL physical line provider, request a port reset from them and reboot your router

If that doesnt work , ask them to run a copper test on your line

Failing that it may be your router itself that is faulty. Unfortunately its one of those "trial and error" kind of problems

There are many possibilities, could be the routet itself losing connection, faulty cable thats plugs into router, could be on the adsl line itself..

if this is happening frequently then it is either the router, cables, or it could be an issue with the service provider. If its the service provider, I wish you luck because it can take ages to sort out, my ADSL is not with afrihost to comment on their service
