I posted previously in the wrong forum so I am trying agian. I brought an old Dell gx240 back to life running on Windows 2K so my kids have another PC besides mine to bang on. I reloaded the OS. Updated through the eithernet conncection and then installed a Dynex DX-BUSP G adaptor to connect to my NetGear router. I have the following issue.

The softwear installed properly
The icon shows and I can see my network
I can connect to the internet
MSN, Google etc
If I try to download anything, apps or play media....
The adaptor looses the connection to the router
I click dianostics and the signal strenght is excellent - it sees my neighbors networks all around too. However, there is not IP address recognized, no MAC, nothing seen by the adaptor.
I click on my network and click connect and I get "Local Area Connection 2, Network Cable is Unplugged"
I restart the PC and everthing works again until I try to download wirelessly.

Now this is an old pc--1.5 chip and 256 ram. I did not have any intention of upgrading so my kids can detroy it.

Could this be a resource issue? More Ram needed? Nothing in the Dynex maual indicates this could be the case, but it always seems to happen with a download or when web based apps start to run. I had to run Windows updates connected directly to the router.

Can anyone help?
