Made the leap from single PC with adsl modem, to getting the netgear DG834G wireless router, new NIC plumbed in running swimmingly.
Then I bought a new PC for my wife (XP Home SP1). Her room is other end of the house so I also bought the Netgear WG311T wireless card. However her PC is misbehaving with it:
- When it's working I get an excellent signal, am able to share directories etc.
- When I'm dragging a any window, it usually 'freezes' during part of the drag for a fraction of a second and audio is interrupted if playing. Audio is also usually interrupted factionally when restoring a window from minimised.
- Computer occasionally hangs (eg after 10 mins), usually when trying some activity such as dragging a window, looking at hardware settings etc.
- From what I can remember, no problems when card was initially not installed. Also no problem when wireless is disabled and I connect with wires to the router.
No problems are shown in device manager. At first I thought it was an IRQ conflict (it was initially showing the same IRQ16 as the video card) - however a change of PCI slot which resulted in IRQ18 hasn't solved it.
Any help gratefully received.
