Please can any body help me !
I have been pulling my hair out for the last 3 months !

I started off with a MOBO that would not connect onto the internet or was just bringing a web page up after 2 mins! i checked the connection on my laptop and this was fine, i then got NTL to ping my mobo and they said thier was an intermitent fault. I firstly suspected drivers or software as the usb port was working fine, so i formatted the hard drive and installed a fresh copy of xp pro, but still no internet. so i got new mobo, same problem! not hardware!
i then decided for a laugh to install win 98 on the first mobo, it works first time on the internet! so i formatted the hard drive again,put XPpro back on with the first mobo and guess what it works!! but still my new mobo wont work, iv'e tryed every thing i can think of and this is the 3rd brand new mobo, someone help me!!!!!!!!!

Hi Paul. In addition to checking for updated drivers, see the link below for information regarding your particular computer USB combination. Windows XP has a number of reported problems with USB devices and there are a number of upgrades and patches available to the operating system which can help to resolve them. If you have any questions post back here with specific information about your computer and current USB driver versions from the System Devices screen.USB Troubleshooting Guide for Windows XP
Cheers.

Cheer's old timer,
after trying many options your suggestion seems logical, although the fault is this the same using the RJ45 and i have installed the motherboard drivers for both network and usb ports, it definately seems like a driver conflict somewhere, i havn't put SP2 on yet so wonder what that will do!!

cheers, Paul67 :thumbsup:

I had a simular prblem with a Linksys USB NIC . I finally switch to a MicroSoft PC-card (PCMCIA) . I don't care for USB . It's a jack of all trades and master of none . Or maybe I give up to easy . IMHO .
