Random net crashes
I have a D-Link adsl router, and two computers, both running XP.
This router has two ports, a usb port, and an ethernet port.
We managed to get the net running by plugging both in (the ethernet for me, and the usb for my dad's)
After running smoothly for a while, my dad's pc couldn't connect to the net. the next day, the router refused to even recognize the usb. (the usb light on the router didn't go on). That day, I used the net, and went away for 5 minutes. When I came back, my net was gone.
The day after that, my dad's computer was able to log into Xfire, but nothing else, my net had returned.
After that day, both our internet connections have returned to normal (if a bit slower to connect)
My brother thought it was my dad's pc, but the fact that mine messed up doesn't jibe with that.
