Have you tried a stack repair after you install that driver? How about checking MSCONFIG for any startup pieces that might have been installed but not really necessary for proper operation?

I'd check your startup list before and after the driver installation and see what they added with that driver.

I'd also reset the stack and see if something they added to the TCP/IP stack might be the issue.


TCP/IP stack repair options for use with Windows XP with SP2/SP3.

Start, Run, CMD to open a command prompt:

In the command prompt window that opens, type type the following commands, each followed by the Enter key:

Note: Type only the text in bold for the following commands.

Reset TCP/IP stack to installation defaults, type: netsh int ip reset reset.log

Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults, type: netsh winsock reset catalog

Reboot the machine.
