When I read your post, I see a very customized machine. What I also read is the OS was reinstalled, but no note that you know to install motherboard and what other drivers that Microsoft doesn't install.
One of the problems of such a setup is support may not be able to help you.
Things to consider:
- Motherboard BIOS shall be latest. After too many occurences of this by "Tech", I consider this to be non-negotiable.
- Motherboard drivers.
- Updated router firmware.
Best of luck,
And post this on the XP forum as well.
Hope I have the correct forum.
I am connected to cable modem via a router. I have to reboot, power down both modem and router several times hope to get online, sometimes it takes a few attempts sometimes several. Problem may occur every few days. I also check internet options,LAN, auto detect. I recently did a fresh install of OS, but this problem existed prior to this. Provider tech support has offered the above mentioned actions as a solution; however, it would seem that the problem is deeper if this is happening so often. Thanks for you help.
