I think I may have figured it out.
Currently I am running the ASUS A7N8X-X mobo with an nVidia nForce MCP network adaptor. My internet service provider is Sympatico (DSL) the modem has a splitter out to the computer upstairs that has an external ethernet card (not on the mobo). My OLD system had the same setup (external ethernet). Now, I am getting (and have been since the upgrade) a LIMITED OR NO CONNECTIVITY message on the start bar, refering to the ghetto network I have setup.
nvenet.sys is the nVidia network system driver, its working properly but not communicating with the other computer on the network. Whenever I use IE for downloading or browsing or whatever, there is extra stress put on my onboard network card and it crashes my system, resulting in stop errors that I posted before.
Heres the test. Disconnect the mini network, and try downloading a big file. If it works then I know thats the problem.
If so the solution is to hookup my OLD external ethernet card, get the drivers for that, since its an ASUS ethernet card that should be easy and go back to my old networking. Then shutdown the operations on the mobo ethernet.
There is another situation. I just bought a wireless networking package/internet package from Sympatico.
Would this be a better solution?
