After reformatting my hard drive, my NIC card which I use to connect to my cable modem is causing my computer to freeze or if not freezing it will not show a linking on my card. Windows XP shows a network cable is unplugged, but it is plugged.I am now trying this in Windows ME and having the same trouble. The device manager shows everything is fine and the drivers have been updated. I know it is not the modem, because it works on my laptops NIC input. I even bought a new network card and no luck with that. All TCP/IP settings are correct also. I am able to use the usb connection on the modem, but need the NIC for my router. My cable company was no help either. Thanks for any help

I would make sure that the nic card you bought is set for the cable
selection you selected, meaning if you have DSL, make sure the nic is for DSL and not ISDN.Also make sure your csu/dsu is configured for the right connection, DSL,ISDN,Frame relay etc!!!
