I've been researching this for sometime now and still cannot find any information as to what media disconnected is suppose to mean. Some get this with Vista others get it with Windows 7. Some are not able to establish a internet connection while others have no problem. I find it odd that there is no official information regarding this and what it's suppose to mean. If you read this post take a moment and type CMD in the search box. At the dos prompt type ipconfig /all and see if Media State = Media Disconnected is found. Also, what other information can be found about this?
