Windows 7 - System event 83 "Port A is down "

Asked By kakii on 07-Mar-07 02:52 AM
Windows XP connected to internet via Marvell Yukon NIC 88e8001/8003/8010
and external ADSL modem.
Driver installed 8.56.4.3.

I get log of system events with ID 83. Event body is "port A is down".
Probably this event is connected with issue I often encounter -
internet connection brakes. Or modem doesn't see NIC after windows start
up.

How should I search for reason of this event and the mentioned issue ?

Put in another network card, connect it to your broadband modem, and see if
the errors go away.
