We have 3 computers on one Belkin router, all the other two is working, but the one that runs XP Professional - internet connection on the wire is going on and off every two seconds.
It is like a 25m cable, and have replace it - worked for some while, but back at the same problem.
Could it be the operating system or the network card.
The XP have one admin and 8 other users that are limited.

I would suggest buying a new network card. You can pick one up at the store for under $30. If you replaced the cable and it still doesn't work, then it is either your card or the Belkin router, most likely the card. Have you tried plugging the computer to a different port on the router? If so, does the problem still arise?

Try using a different port on your router for that computer so if it is in number 3 then move it to 4 and see if that helps. Or maybe see if there is a new network card driver for your current one. Otherwise I would recommend buying a new network card for the computer.
