Error (warning) for Intel Pro/100 VE nic card

Error (warning) for Intel Pro/100 VE nic card

Error (warning) for Intel Pro/100 VE nic card

I have a remote user that uses a laptop.  For some reason lately his Nic card disconnects from the network.  The following error appears in the event viewer

Event id:  8

Adapter Intel(R) PRO/100 VE Network Connection:  Did not recieve auto-negotiation advertisement from link partner.  A duplex mismatch may occur.

I have done some research and I don't know what is causing the problem.  The remote user is connecting to a T-1 through a Linksys router.  There are 3 other people in the office and they are working fine.  Any suggestions or ideas would be appreciated.

RE: Error (warning) for Intel Pro/100 VE nic card

If I understand you correctly the user is connected then disconnects?

If this is the case i would start with the basics and look at the physical link, check all the cables etc.

Can the Linksys port be set to a fixed speed and do the same on the users computer to remove the need to autonegotiate and see if the link stays up.

You could look to see it there is a newer firmware revision for the card and an update driver to see if that helps
