Most random problem I have ever occured.
I have ran into quite a unique problem that I am baffled by. I have a Toshiba Qosmio F45 with a major LAN card issue. I have a RJ45 drop on my desk that I use every day to plug my (Gateway) laptop into. I tried plugging the Toshiba into the same drop and it gives me the error of "Network Cable Unplugged". Hmm, so the drop works for my laptop but not the Toshiba. So I took the laptop to 2 other drops in the office that are both hot on my laptop but on the Toshiba I get "Network Cable Unplugged". Really strange huh?
Here is what I have done on the Toshiba.
Uninstall (Realtek RTL8101E NDIS 6.0) Driver. Reboot machine bring it back up, install new hardware, reinstall driver.
Go to windows update. Get newest update for LAN card.
The Toshiba is running Vista Business Premium.
