I'm having a problem with a computer I'm working on. I'm using a AirLink101 Wireless N PCI Adapter and I know the card works because I've tried it in other computers. The problem is that it can connect to the network but isn't receiving internet access. I had a ATI Sapphire X1600 video card in it. I found another X1600 video card lying round and was testing it out to see if it worked in that computer and then the internet works. The video card however had some pretty bad artifacts showing up, so I don't think I can use it. The only other PCI-E video card I have at the moment is the first X1600 but every time I boot up with that card in I loose internet connection. It must be a problem with that card interfering with something else but I do not know what. Does anyone have any ideas or maybe a solution to fix this?
Okay. Ill try this again. On my computer it said it was connected to the net work but didnt have internet access. Ive tried everything to make it work and couldnt get it to work. anyways i put a different video card in the computer and then it connect to the internet. I cannot use that video card because it has been over heated and has artifacts all over the screen. when i put the first video card back in the computer, the it doesnt get internet access again.
This wireless card DOES work and WILL connect to the internet. When using on board video i CAN connect to the internet and when using my other video card (the X1600 that has been overheated and has artifacts) it CAN connect. I would like to use the video card that does work though but every time i try it i loose internet connection. therefor, it MUST be a conflict between the working X1600 and the wireless card.
Hey you should try this, remove the car use th onboard video for now. download the latest drivers for you network card and video card. Unistall both drivers for your cards shut down your system, inert the network card, install the drivers to it. check you network settings if all is good then turn off you system again install the x1600 card reboot and install drivers to it after that. Than check you your network connection. IF your system cannot connect to the network then you should leave the graphic card alone for now, By the way what OS are you running and do u have latest updates?
