    I have a Linksys NIC v5. Whenever I search for a file on WinMX, I get the BSOD,


    I have tried the default XP drivers and still crash. :(
    Would it be safe to assume that the NIC is bad?

    Does Exploer and browsing work? Doesn't seem logical that your NIC would be bust because of one program......:confused:

    If it crashes when using WinMX, more than likely it will crash when using accessing the internet in general.

    But does it....?

    I used to have a problem similar with iMesh, the rest of the net was fine. Then they changed the build and the problem disapeared...


    use version 4.. the one that came wit the card..

    EmpireTank: My Linksys is version 5 not version 4. The drivers that XP installs for it, by default, are version 4. I have tried both and both times my pc crashes.

    sboulema: No help there. :( I can use my Realtek NIC and have no problems at all. Use the Linksys and BSOD everytime. :(

    Thanks for the help so far.

    ok this is what you should do..... put the loudest cd in your stereo and proceed to bash the sh*t out of the NIC then go out and get a dif one if that one doesnt work start from the beginning of my thread..... lol
