My laptop says my ethernet cable is unplugged, it isn't.

Hello,
I've had a network bridge between my desktop and my laptop for a year or so with no problems. For the last week or so the connection kept on dropping and today it finally stopped working. Both the laptop and the desktop say the cable is unplugged (I've tried other cables that I know work), even though the cable is plugged in to both of them. Whenever I run the troubleshooter, it just says that it can't find the problem. The laptop has internet still, but it won't go to the desktop. All the drivers are up to date, according to the device manager. Can somebody please help?
