I have an older Dell running xp pro. At one point I needed a new network card so I installed a Linksys LNE100TX. It worked fine for a year and then all of sudden after every reboot it says there is limited connectivity and the internet will not work.

Every time I restart I have to do the following:
1. Insert the Linksys disc.
2. Uninstall the card with the disc tool.
3. Install the card with the disc tool.
4. Go to add/remove hardware. Once I start the wizard it finds the card and then it works correctly.
5. I have found that these steps have to be followed exactly or I cannot get it to work.

This is very annoying to do after every reboot.

Any ideas?
