    HI
    I was wondering if anyone can shed light on this one. I am on a network with one card and hooked up to a C.N.C. machine on the other card. My office has great internet connection speed but mine is insanely slow. This problem occured when I installed the second card. I am running XP. any ideas:confused:

    Does the problem occur with no cable connected to the second NIC?

    If so, does the problem occur after using Device Manager to uninstall the driver of the second NIC?

    If so, does the problem go away after removing the second NIC?

    If so, you probably have some kind of (maybe interrupt) conflict between the two cards and I would guess that you could get better help for that if you click on "Report" and ask to have this thread moved to the Hardware Forum.

    Thanks for the tips but I tried those scenarios and it did not change the speed.My computer is connected to a network other than the machine. I,m not sure if that has anything to do with it.

    Still having the problem after removing the second NIC indicates that the second NIC has nothing to do with the problem. Try Safe Mode with Networking.
