It should be Layer 1 Issue (Physical connection). Your cable, PC's Ethernet card or the Interface in your Cisco it self.

Problem with cisco sg500

I'm not familiar with the device, but it might be something in the configuration. It could be DHCP, it could be something deeper.
I suggest contact Cisco support directly, they have support forums too.

My lan speed going down.i am using cisco router 881, guide me to troubleshoot this speed issue

this could be MANY reasons....first, how many devices on your LAN ??? If there is a broadcast storm, that will slow things down on your LAN. Very few devices nowadays cause this. Also, from your pc, try pinging your router using an increased packet load. So start of with ping <router ip> -l 8000 and try going up to 20000. In theory, you should not be getting any loss. Responses times up to 12000 should be 4 - 8 ms. Higher response times point to errors on NICs. On the route console, try a show int VLAN <vlan number you've configured for your LAN> and enter. Under the CRC Errors and Interface resets, if you have anything more than 5, it could be a cable/NIC/MTU size problem.

My cisco 877 dsl router sometime disconected from internet itself and after 5 or 6 hours its return back what can be the problem

1. check the status to the router page by logging into the router to see if the router lost connectivity.
2. Pinging an outside address will tell you if you have lost connectivity with the ISP or not.
Ping test = Ping
this is within the router

ICMP packets not working on Dell Latitude D620

With vista I had the same problem, but when I enabled network fileshareing and set up some network drives it started to answer on ping requests, so it should be one of the networking protocols to enable.

Siements 5890 router

When you say HQ is that outside on the wan port trying to ping the Lan port?
Sometimes the router itself will respond to a ping but will not pass ping requests thru as the internal firewall can never be fully shutoff unless you are running your cisco switch as a DMZ 
also are you connecting your other pc's to the cisco or to the 5890.
Instead of shutting off the firewall completely try enabling bridge mode and give your cisco the outside IP addy.

Cat OS 6513 module deteced but not shown in show config

I had this same problem on a switch a while ago. what version of CATos are you running on this switch. the blade you are using might not be upto date.

I had a 6506 with 10/100 modules/ upon installation of 10/100 with inline power the chasis would not detect it but would detect the board.

I updated the CATos version and it worked
