changed my cable and router and still losing ethernet connection.the only thing i can think of now is the port on my mother board is dying out.is that possible?

i recently reformatted but didn't install any drivers because i could get online fine without it.could that cause issues?

You can always buy a cheap gigabit dynex NIC from Bestbuy or something, if it works then it's a 20$ fix and if it's not the fix then you can return it.

Edit: First though, I'd use a different port on the router and a different cord if possible.

wizardmon's correct, try a different cable and router port first.

Nobody ever suspects their cables of going bad, I've seen experienced techs stumped over network connectivity issues that were solved by a new 3-foot ethernet cable.

Oh and make sure you haven't ended up doing something silly like assigning the same address to multiple devices on the network.
