:thumbsup: Hey whats up guys i was just wondering if I could get a little help here, my girlfriends computer is acting up after i installed a D-Link RangeBooster Wireless-N Desktop Card Model: DWA-542 pci network card. It has been happening a lot after i installed it i ran the setup and it connected to the internet immediately no problem there but everytime the computer is in use after about 10-15 the computer locks up. The mouse and everything just seems to halt. You can not control alt delete either you have to power off and then power back on. I'm not sure if it can be any malware spyware, just wonderin if you guys can throw me some suggestions!

Thanks! :flowers:

Hi not sure if this will help, but have you tried to uninstall and reinstall the driver with the newest driver??
did it freeze before the card was installed ? if so maybe a hardware conflict or some other issue can you give more info on the pc ?? operating system, cpu etc.

some cards don't like some slots on particular motherboards, it's more plug and pray than play

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.

yea i'll try switching up the PCI slot i think theres one more available, and no it never froze before i installed the PCI Card in the slot. I guess i'll do some trial and error with switchin the pci card into another slot and maybe messin around with the drivers, i'll be sure to post if somethin else goes wrong thanks guys.

:thumbsup:

I am having the same problem with the linksys version of the PCI Card and cannot figure out what is goin on. The only difference seems to be mine gives me the blue screen of death.
