Bad NIC?

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

Error: DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL 0x000000D1

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...

this is from another thread about the same error:

IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

You have some driver or card that needs updating.

Installing an old version of EZ CD Creator with Direct CD will cause this,

bad RAID or SCSI drivers, and other reasons

If applicable, apply the upgrade to XP downloadable from Roxio's web site.

found this on this site >>>>>

the IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL message seems it is a driver of some kind that needs updating

gonna keep looking

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.
