NICs fail to work on every boot and system slows to a freeze
I have 2 systems.
both have Vista ultimate with the sp1 rc.
1 is a dell laptop with wifi, the other is a custom built with a 680i
motherboard with the duel nics.
1 is 64 bit, other is 32 bit.
Both have most of the same software installed except for games.

both experience the same types of NIC issues on separate networks.

I will boot into windows and notice my network is not connected with the
little red network icon.
If I try to disable the effected nic the device manager will hang.
If I try to repair it will come back and say bindings are not right or
driver is malfunctioning.
If I reboot chances are it will work.
If on the 680i I plug the cable from 1 NIC to the other I can save myself a
reboot because the other NIC will work.
On the laptop if the wifi fails to fully connect it gets into a half
connected state where you can't do any disabling without freezing up and
eventually the system will grind to a halt not accepting input. I've never
waited long enough on the 680i machine to see if it will freeze eventually.

The home network where the 680i is uses a d-link gamerlounge router.
At work the laptop uses a linksys wrtblah thing.

I already tried the dhcp broadcast flag thing and that's not the fix.
Drivers are always up to date.
Problem is still here with sp1.

Re: NICs fail to work on every boot and system slows to a freeze

May sound wierd but are any of the ip addresses the same, I had a
printer at work doing the same thing. Not related to vista. I am not an
expert at networking but it may be something to do with your ip
addresses. Also look in your error logs on both machines and see if
there are any similarities. Also as both nics are the same try looking
for updated drivers.

nothing to do with ips or drivers since its 2 different computers on 2
different networks.
Drivers are always kept up to date.
