    Well after about 4 formatting incidents and my third NIC card I am now able to play games again and even obtain a different IP at will!! Well things can't be so sweet can they? This all started when I tried to install Diablo 2 and I am about to give it my last and final attempt to play the damn game online. Wish me luck because if it doesn't work I fear that I will destroy my PC out of anger.

    P.S. THIS IS MY ****ING 3RD NIC CARD!!

    hmm

    I only needed one NIC card. I got a 3Com NIC and a 3Com cable modem. I love this thing. I can get over a meg a sec. /infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif
    I usually get like 700 k/sec on DLs. Napster is great with it,I get most songs in 5 secs or so. /infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

    I had some probs with the card though Mega. I am experiencing one as I type this. For some reason,the USB plug for the card,or the card itself,causes anomalies and pops in anything mpeg based. Play an mp3,pops constantly,play a DVD,TONS of pops. As soon as I unplug is,no more pops. That is why I hope companies don't choose to use the mp3 format for sounds in games cuz when I play em online,that **** would be annoying. Gun fire with all kinds of static sounding pops would just ruin a game. /infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

    My NIC that actually works is 4 years old

    The NIC that I actually got working in this damn thing believe it or not, I got it from a second hand PC repair shop. It is
    /start drumroll
    D-LINK 10/100 ISA ETHERNET COLTROLER!
    /me grins
    I never thought that the new stuff was the problem. This one costed me only $4.99, and Canadian funds at that! LOL
