I find that some Dell laptop network ports loose connection if the Loose Connection - Various - Stacked Up! is not held just right and I have a wireless access point that is doing this also. Try it with a new cable. If you are still having the issue, that most likely means that someone ripped out or tried the cable from the plug and damaged the port.
This can damage the nic port physically. You can try seeing if you can bend back the retainer on the laptops, but if not, you will most likely have to replace the motherboard since the nics are ususally built into the motherboard. Are you using the HP teaming software, as this can give some very strange results when using seperate legs of a teamed pair.
I've never tried Joel's solution, but I've definitely replaced mobos in laptops like Ryan suggests. I guess my opinion is that if they've damaged the ethernet port, what else have they damaged that I DON'T know about Either that or it goes in the stack of crap laptops to hand out when someone does something stupid to the regular machine I sometimes bend the plastic retention tab on the plug out Loose Connection - Various - Stacked Up!
that it holds a little better. You could try a different brand of patch cable or crimping a different plug on it. If the cables don't secure in the port well, and the cables are in good condition with their clips intact etc.
Think about making a switch to lenovo, better construction and reliability in my experience. Then there's where the Loose Connection - Various - Stacked Up!
enters the plug, and there's a lot of wear and test on the wires and their connection to the "blades" of the connector. The third is where I've seen the locking tab get broken off, and that can cause problems as the connector no longer has pressure where expected, and no mechanism holding the cable in the socket. That second problem is especially bad with "in house" crimped cables, and is the reason I buy machines cables, instead of buying a crimper, a bunch of connectors and a big box of cable.
Some may argue this but to me tips are tips, they are for the most part pretty standard. In my experience it isn't necessarily the port that is wearing out but the tip on the network cable. You can try to gently pull the tab up so that it will lock in place better, this may work in the interim, but it will eventually go back down and you are back to square one.
I would try trading out the line if possible with a newer one. If trading out doesn't work you can retip the line and Uninvited Memory - Don Peretz - Lalita if that corrects the problem.
Worse case scenario you are out a few cents in parts and about five minutes of your time. Best case you saved a lot of money.
I've seen some use clear gum glue. Im not sure what its called, but it kind of looks like a booger. Apparently, it doesn't seem to affect the connection even though its gunked all over the pins. I replace a lot of ends. In my time, I've made at least a few hundred cables for any number of people or reasons.
Replace the end or replace the cable and don't buy the super cheap ones, they are junk. Ends and cables are cheap enough, not worth the headache for a couple extra bucks.
I replaced the cable to the WAP with one with a housing for pulling without getting hooked and will see if that takes care of one issue. The one laptop that seemed to have the cable click in looks like someone pulled the cable out and broke the metal clip Loose Connection - Various - Stacked Up!
the plug clicks on the case, too far out of the socket for connectivity. I'll see if it's worth replancing the mobo. It's probably not the style of connection but the cable itself. Swap it out. And test that specific cable in another machine to see if it's flaky. Usually it'll be the cable. But if you're unlucky, it'll be the NIC port. That's expensive to fix in a laptop.
