Computer restarts itself when plugging in Router
Our household recently signed up for ADSL service. We went out and bought our router modem today, but came home and we had trouble with it.
I expected to be able to basically use the modem straight "out of the box", and connect up to the net after a little bit of fiddling around. But i have a problem that wont let me get passed even step 1. What happens is, when you plug the effernet cable into the PC (with the modem attached on the other end), the computer restarts itself instantly after about 3 seconds. When the computer loads up again, if the cable is still attached then it'll restart itself again before it can load windows fully. It wont stop restarting itself until you take the cable out.
- It's a D-Link wireless ADSL Router, model DSL-G604T.
- Network Card is SiS 900 PCI Fast Ethernet Adapter
- Windows XP, professional
- Pentium 4, 3.2 ghz... (bought the computer recently)
It's really quite strange. I don't know whether it's a problem with the power, or software, i don't know. I'm downloading the latest driver for the network card, i'll let you all know how that goes.
EDIT: Updating driver didn't work. :sayno:
