I have a Linksys NIC on my KG7R with no problems. Sounds like you may have a bad card. Have you tried getting a different one? Jason
Do you mean loading your BIOS takes 3-5 minutes or loading your OS takes so much time?
when loading up Os you come to that black screen that has white box and inside is sys information like how much ram/cache/harddrive/ide info/etc. etc.
well it hangs on that screen for about3-5 minutes then it continues to load windows.....
Which protocols does Windows use for the nic card? Could be that settings for the protocols are wrong, or your card is indeed bad and can't get connection with anything. Is your card working when Windows is loaded?
