I have a home-built computer in my room, and it runs nearly perfectly, except for one problem. Whenever the comp stayed on too long or I did something graphically intense and cpu demanding, it either froze, restarted, of gave me the blue "hardware malfunction, contact your system vendor" blah blah. At last, I finally found the problem.

I had a linksys AWLH4030 wireless adapter, and when I removed it, all problems stopped. My driver is the one that came on the cd, but that's the same one I found online. I tried switching PCI slots, but that didn't help. Is there any way to fix this without going out and buying a totally new wireless adapter?

Given the inexpensive prices of networking equipment, do you really want to spend a lot of time on this problem with no real certainty that you'll solve it without new hardware? :smile:

Why not try a different brand. I've been using a D-Link DWL-G510 with very good results. Picked it up on rebate for about $15.00.

Go to the D-Link site, see what's on rebate and go shopping.

Install the drivers first and configure from within the D-Link envirnment.
Keep Windows out of it as much as possible.

Regards,
JF
