Your LAN icon dissapears on your toolbar but I assume you are still actually connected? If so you can go into Control Panel/Network connections. Right click on your LAN connection and go to properties and check "show icon in notifaction area when connected. You can also check the "Notify me when this connection has limited or no connectivity."

I'm not sure I understand. Are you using multiple NIC cards in your system? When you say LAN I assume you are connecting through a router? Connecting to your LAN should happen automatically when you boot up. The connection should not simply go away unless there is a cable or hardware malfunction. Have you checked your network drivers?

You could try and swap out the ethernet cable. If you still have the problem maybe change the port you are connected to on the router. I know that the drivers can cause issues if you mistakenly update the driver unintentionallyy. For example if you have a Nvidia graphics card and you go to update it, there is a choice to also update LAN and chipset drivers. It can be easy to mistakenly update those unintentionally. If all else fails reload the correct drivers for your NIC just in case this has happened.
