Default home networking help

I'm using a Westell modem on the main computer and have the main computer running with USB. I have the second computer connected through a 50" cat5 ethernet cable. The main computer stays connected fine but, The second computer seems to not want to stay connected after soo much. It will end up disconnecting on the second computer and then says "limited or no connectivity". Could someone tell me whats wrong or what I should do to fix this problem, Would be greatly appericiated!

If it drops the connection all together then you probably have a bad cable/nic/RJ45 connecter.

Does the cable run near any floro lighting microwave ovens televisions etc... all could cause EMI which could cause a lost connection.

You say it is intermittant? do you have to reboot to get the connection to work again or does it come back?

You may have a dodgy port. I take it you have the Cat5e cable running into a router?
