    Hi guys. I recently installed DSL on my computer and installed an ethernet card. The hookup seems to be working, but every 10 minutes or so, usually when I click on a link or hit the back button, my screen freezes for a couple minutes. I noticed that when I'm working an online crossword puzzle, the timer on the puzzle continues to run when the rest of my screen freezes. It's a pretty aggravating occurrence. Thanks.

    Hi, and welcome.

    What operating system are you running? In device manager, any conflicts or IRQ sharing?

    Thanks for responding so quickly.
    In the device manager, under Network Adapters, there is an exclamation point beside Existing Ndis2 Driver. I don't seen any mention of IRQ sharing. I am runnning Windows 98 2nd Edition.

    Ok, that's probably the problem......does it give you any details as to the problem?

    Can you list your IRQs for us?

    Start button, run, then type msinfo32 and hit ok.....go to hardware, IRQs, edit, select all, edit, copy and come back and paste.

    What modem do you have for DSL?
    Do you have an Icon on the desktop you have to click to connect?

    I have an external westfall dsl modem. There is a desktop icon, but the connection is made on startup. If I click on the verizon online tab on the task bar, it pops up with a connection error, but the connection is still made. Thanks a lot. This has been very frustrating.

    Hmmm....IRQs appear to look ok.....not sure if this will matter, but go back to device manager and place a check mark in the box to disable in this hardware profile for that NDIS2 item (if that is an option), then restart the computer.

    I disabled the hardware that goes with that driver, but the screen still freezes. The driver has a red "x" on it now in the device manager. Do you think the connection port error showing up in the verizon online popup has something to do with it?

    Well, you say it's already connected when you get that error message, correct? So you can't connect twice......unless I'm misunderstanding your post.

    What's the exact message you get?

    The error message says something to the effect of, "Error 630 Port connection failed due to hardware not installed properly," or something like that. I'm not at home, so I'll post another reply when I get home and post it verbatim. Thanks.

    OK..just my luck..the verizon online button on my task bar isn't showing up now, but it says something like what I posted before. There is another error that comes up during start-up. I get a black screen and an error message: "Error 7323: One or more network transport drivers failed to load." Thanks for your patience.

    The error message from the verizon online task bar is showing again. It says, "Connection Failed: Error630 The port was disconnected due to hardware failure." But I am online and connected. I don't know if this has anything to do with it or not. Thanks.
