hi.. im not sure what happened... this ran fine until i moved this computer from the upstairs to the downstairs and added a D-Link for my wireless router.. i am experiencing 100% cpu usage when im on the internet.. it wont lower. i have tried reformatting, ghosting and installing XP again, i got nothing,, i have ran adware seek and destroy, norton2005, spyware Doctor etc.... nothing helped,
does this sound familiar? Can someone explain to me what is happening?

:tazz:

so, you are now...wireless downstairs?

I would see about shutting down any wireless utility that came with your card

No, not bad...just trying to isolate.

Most wireless cards come with various utilities that may or may not be needed with the connection. I would disable these and see if
A) you can connect
b) your problem disappears
