  • New Router, 2 broken network cards

    I got a new router, DLink DIR-615.

    Everything went fine, I know what I'm doing when it comes to networking.
    However! Upon trying to boot my PC this morning, it wouldn't get past the windows loading bar unless I disabled my onboard ethernet card in the BIOS.

    I'm running on an Asus M3A motherboard and Windows XP Pro SP2



    Now here's the interesting part, my brother (running Windows Server 2008) had exactly the same issue at exactly the same time, and is also using the Asus M3A and a wired connection. Wireless clients are unaffected.

    I'm very puzzled by this, as the onboard network cards do not work in Linux now either.

    Anyone had a similar problem?

    Do they work if you remove the new router?
    Check your BIOS settings for Network boot or smiliar and disable all of it - just a wild guess. BIOS update maybe?

      BIOS should the be the last thing he messes with.

      Edit:

      Remove the drivers for your onboard NICs. I'm thinking the drivers might be to blame. If it's locking up on upon a cold start on Windows process loading, then it's most likely faulty drivers.

        I suggested that because he noticed that the NICs also do not work under Linux now and if this is the case (and the same cause) it has to be a issue below the OS level.
