Hi All,

I've upgraded to naked dsl 2+ and am having no end of troubs with the ethernet connection.

The old modem i had works just fine on a usb connection but whenever I try to connect a 4 port router with the ethernet connection the pc freezes and howls the minute that IE is open. As long as IE isn't open the pc runs fine. I can ping the routers addy but cant ping the web. AT no point is the PPP light coming on. I have tried the help desk connected to the routers brand and all they suggested was trying another pc.

For interests sake, not sure if its the issue, I did change isps and had uninstalled previous isps software. It's a HP desktop and running XP Home.

Could this possibly be a prob with the nic hardware?

Any help would be greatly apprecaited.

Cheers,

Spanky

Did your new ISP come with any software to install?

Seems like you need to enter your ISP's DNS addresses into your network card TCP/IP Properties.

My experience is that the 2-way modems (USB/ethernet) generally come with USB drivers which need to be installed for the USB connection to work.

On some models, these drivers must be uninstalled when using the modem with an ethernet function.

It would not hurt to go online and look up the support provided (instructions, drivers) for your modem by the manufacturer.

Bypass the router and connect to the xDSL modem using ethernet. Configure username and password for PPPoE if required.
If this works correctly, great. If not try a new NIC in the PC.
