Hi There

Uninstall it, then get the latest driver from the manufacturer's website (not the Windows one or the one that came with it) and reinstall using the newer driver.

Then repost.

Hi There

Have you added any other PCI cards? Also can you identify the motherboards? Use PC WIZARD.

I think you have a similar post in the XP forum so I'd keep to ONE post.

Hi There

Latest driver for that NIC from FOXCONN website:

http://www.foxconnsu...mp;sort=Drivers

Might want to install the latest chipset driver BEFORE the NIC driver. Its on the same page.

Hi There

I'd uninstall the NIC, then reboot then do the chipset then NIC.

Let me know how you get on.
