System continually loses network connections

Gigabyte Ga-ep45-ud3r motherboard

Specs: Windows XP SP3
This system on my network continually loses network connectivity. Generally the problem starts when the user boots up in the morning after a night shut down,

When the system restarts it has no connectivity to network and obviously the shared internet connection.

It is connected through a Netgear 5 port switch which is new as it was previously connected on another very old mini switch,

Here is the connection of entire network, Incoming ADSL 2 router, through a Linksys WRV200 VPN Router, through 10/100Mbs Switch, LAN cabled to this particular port under desk, to the Netgear Switch which then ports to this computer plus one other standalone PC that runs only a display TV in the realestate office. This is the only computer in the whole network experiencing the issue,

I disabled the onboard network interface thinking this might be it and installed a new network card but still occuring, the problem is sometimes erratic ie in that it will happen 3 or 4 days in a row and then suddenly not occur.

I hope i have given enough info thanks for reading

Are there electric generators or wall power supplies in the environment, that may cause interfences and are not running every day?

Thanks for such a quick response, no there are no generators nearby, when u say are there wall power supplies do you mean a standard power point, that i will check shortly but i am pretty sure when we had the place cabled for network it was kept clean. there may be a power board where the cables are running but then wouldnt the other computer experience the same issue?

Thanks again

If the other computers are connected to the same Netgear Switch and the cables are running the same way as the cable of the computer, that experience problems, YES.

The main part to figure out the problem is, to figure out the differences of the days, where you have the problems and the days you don't have the problems.

Any machine in the environment, that is not running every day or something like that may cause such problems.

hi thanks for your pointers just wanted to let you know it turned out to be a badly wired pair of cables at the switch!

Hope this helps someone else too.

None of the above really helps. I didn't always have this problem but nothing at this end has altered. All leads are as new, never receive any wear. When problem first started, I would close everything down, unplug dongle clean sim and start again from sq one. Nine out of ten times it worked, but now it's more like two out of ten, then I usually lose it again after a little while.
Is it possible my dongle needs replacing. It's two years old. I have tried all USB ports makes no difference.
