"Media Disconnected" network error in Windows ME. This seems to be a Windows ME specific problem. Windows ME can't determine what type of network you are on (10Mbit or 100Mbit). Your network card should negotiate either 10mbit or 100mbit on it's own.

To correct the error, go into Start>Settings>Control Panel->Network>TCP/IP for your ethernet card->IP Address Tab and uncheck DETECT CONNECTION TO NETWORK MEDIA then click "OK" and again "OK" then when prompted...restart.
