I've been having trouble with my Comcast (cable) Internet connection. It seems to drop sometimes when I'm away from the computer or randomly at other times.
I was talking to a Comcast tech help person who asked me to look at where my Internet cable plugs into the computer and tell him what color the light was. I told him it was an orange blinking light. He said this indicates a NIC that is on its last legs (the light should be green, according to him) and that that might explain my problems. He said I should buy a new NIC (which I have no objection to doing, if it will solve the problem).
So my question for you guys is, is this just BS from someone who doesn't know what the real problem is or is it in fact the truth?
Thanks very much.
