The upgrade shouldn't have caused this. Check the connection on the back on your modem as well as PC, it might have slipped out a little. If that doesn't work, try another network cable. Again, if that doesn't work, then it's a problem with your modem or network card (possible specific to the socket!)

When you get that message, does the internet work?

It could be that you have another Network Card or Network access point on the computer and you have only just noticed it.

The modem could have a problem and it is reseting itself. When this happens your computer cannot see it hence network cable unplugged message.
