It's just between my machine and DSL router. Have been happily using a wireless connection for some time, with no real problems. I recently installed Windows Vista RC1, for which there is no driver for my wireless card (Belkin PCI one). So I ran a cable between my machine and router. The internet was so much more responsive, so I thought I'd get rid of the wireless altogether. Now, I have 2 installs on WinXP on my machine, one for normal use, and one for Pro Tools (my music recording software). The Pro Tools install works fine (I'm writing this through it). However my normal boot won't use it. The wireless works fine, however the wired one gives me a dead connection. It gets an IP address from the router, but won't send any data either way. I have tried everything I can think of, 'repairing' the connection, and reinstalling the network card drivers. Doesn't seem to make any difference.
