Well, here's one i cant figure out...Dell Dimension 2200, with XP home,sp2, runs nicely for hours on end. Put itr in range of a wireless network, and it freezes up within 5 or 10 minutes,and it doesn't matter whether you are using anything online, or just runing applications...example: it freezes if trying to install SP2 (from a cd), or updateing AVG online...What could be causing this???...thanks for any help!

Do you have a cordless phone in your house? My father-in-law had one which messed up his network pretty bad. I know it's a long shot....

Well he had one computer that worked fine, and one that didn't, but they were both HP's. It's worth a try I reckon...
