[NIC] Not working

Hi all.

I have two Dells and two network cards. I installed a network card into each Dell, one a 8250 and the other an Optiplex 4100. In both Dells when i start Windows XP the internet stays connected for about 15 seconds and then the Dell won't connect anymore.

Both have their updated drivers; however is there something on the BIOS I need to change? It's a very frustrating problem and odd that it happens in both of them. Any help would be much appreciated.

Make sure you have the latest drivers from Dell's website or the card manufacturer's website - the drivers that come on the installation CD are generally not the latest.
