Its a 2wire 2700hg. However, I don't think the router is the problem as
everything was working perfectly before the motherboard upgrade. The fact
that the error log contains lots of entries from the network adapter would
mean that the microsoft driver is causing the issue.
I have tried updating the driver to the latest that Mavell provided me, but
I still get the same issue.
Does any one know how communication with a media center extender is
different to communication with a normal PC. The reason I ask is that the
network adapter is perfectly fine for PC-PC access and file/printer sharing.
I only get the errors when I try and connect to extenders.
