    I have Windows ME. I recently installed a Linksys LNE 100TX Ethernet card. Since that time, when I try to shut down, the system automatically reboots. I can't shut down without actually pushing the power button.

    When I disable the Ethernet card device, the system shuts down properly. But, obviously, I need a better solution so that I can use the card.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Welcome to TSG!
    Network card shutdown problems are very common. One of the standard fixes for this is to update the drivers. Go Here and review to make sure it is correct for your system then download proper drive set, then install per its instructions. If that does not fix the problem then it could be your system is shutting down to fast and not allowing the card to disconnect triggering a restart. Try the delay of shutdown items listed in this Site. Since we know what item is causing it you will not have to follow any of the diagnostics parts of the site.

    Keep us posted to your progress.
