    Hello, i just bought a Netgear WRN2000 wireless router and now every time i start my computer it crashes immediately. I have another laptop in the house that works fine. I am using an Acer laptop which has an Intel R Pro Wireless 2200BG card..

    i'm thinking it may have something to do with the drivers of either my new router or my current card. If anybody can help, it would be much appreciated!

    Routers don't need any drivers, so I'm not sure what you installed.

    Make sure you have the latest 2200bg driver from Acer's web site.
