Alright, I've been working this problem for awhile and I still haven't found a fix.

Ever since I installed a new sound card on my girlfriend's computer (P4-WinXP Home) there is a problem with the internet connection. The connection runs through the onboard LAN device through a wired router and then to the broadband cable modem.

Every time I boot the computer back up again the network connection is sending packets but not receiving any. If I disable the connection and then re-enable it, it begins receiving packets and everything is fine.

I've flushed the DNS cache, I've reinstalled the network connection via the internet wizard. Both to no avail.

Please let me know if you have any advice on this, thanks.

It sounds as though there may be a resources conflict.

Before you added the sound card did the motherboard have a sound card built in or was it seperate, like the one you installed?

If it was integral in the motherboard, did you disable it?

It worked!
I uninstalled the onboard LAN (NIC) and then disabled the onboard sound in bios upon reboot. Whichever it was, that seemed to fix it.

Thanks guys!
