Hi guys, I recently got a broadband connection(ADSL, 2mbps). My adsl modem/router is a UT-300R2U. Problem few minutes after I start surfing (or connecting the router) my windows xp system hangs up. Thought may be the windows installation was screwed, but even after doing a fresh install the system hangs. I've tried IE6, FF2, all wit the same--system hangs up. How can i fix this? The adsl is connected to my LAN card. a Via RHINE II 10/100 mbps. thanks

Visit the website of the router manufacturer and download the latest driver. and while you are there you also may want to look for a firmware update that they may have put out to correct an issue.

I would be looking at updating driver for nic card (network card) in Device Manager or if pc is old you may need to add a separate pci nic card instead of one built in to mobo. I note you boot 3 os. Does this problem occur in all 3?

I don't think it's the router firmware issue as this problem occurs only in XP. Win98 and SuSE and absolutely fine. I use SuSE for most of my Surfing, I need to use XP only for online gaming. SuSE has been up and running all day yesterday, with no hint of slowdown or hanging up.
I checked for newer updates of the MoBo drivers, but the one on the MoBo(ASUS) website is the same as the one on my driver cd!!
My system is not that old(only 2 years, which is like eternity in comp land anyways)

You know it seems there's some incompatibility with WinXP and my NIC driver.. I connected the router to the comp via USB and had no problems-it was just fine.

As I said before, you might want to try a pci nic card, I have pc's where this happens.
