Oh yeah Cowboy I also forgot to tell you that the Wireless Led on the front is blinking intermittently. On for 1 sec off for 1 sec. I consulted my Router manualk and it doesnt say anything about the LED blinking it just says on.

Weird thing happened Cowboy. I shtu down everything(router, modem, computer) unistalled everything then reinstalled everything and booted up router, then modem, then cpu, and i got a 192 IP address the second try. I think it is the same IP as the computer that i was connected the ethernet cable to before. Im not sure if it will connect to any routers other than mine now , but this is progress. I'll keep you updated.

Download Everest from this link :
http://www.majorgeek...wnload4181.html

Run everest then click on the Report menu. Select Report Wizard, then select Hardware Related pages. Create the report as a TXT file (if this option is available). When its finished compiling, save the report & then attach it with your next post

Sorry to butt in, but I want to track this problem as I have an identical one, except it is using the default wireless adapter in my Twinhead Durabook.

I couldn't see a way to subscribe (getting blind in my old age) but know from another forum that if you send a message you can get email notifications.

Excuse my interruption please.

edit- found this page by googling my network adapter. There is some inappropriate language on there, but it could be a common link? Someone who knows what they are reading might glean some info from there - I didn't except I'm not alone in my frustration with the network adapter...
