i have two pcs both using win xp and networked with a linksys wireless setup. never had any trouble. well i put a geforce 6600gt video card in my no. 1 pc, took the fx 5200 out of it and put it in the secondary pc. my mobo specs seemed to support the 5200. iits a pentium3 815 eea board. it has an agp slot that will handle up to 4x. well when i powered up both systems i couldn't get the second pc back on line. it wouldn't hook up. stupid me never even thought of the fx 5200 card, i tiried everything else until i finally, in desperation pulled out the 5200 and the pc hooked right up. my question after all of this is why doe that happen. how does a graghics card keep a networked pc from connecting to the host pc.. i thought the card would work fine, but live and learn

It sounds VERY strange to me... What were you running before? On-board graphics? Does this 2nd PC have a PCI network card or other? Does the device still show up as working in device manager with the FX5200 in?

I agree, sounds like a driver issue, or you have whatever vid you were using still active.

i had a tnt2 nvidia card in before. i finally had to uninstall all the nvidia drivers from device manager and add/remove programs in control panel. when i downloaded the drivers for the 5200 i went ahead and downloaded the most recent up grade. well i still had the connection problem. i uninstalled the drivers ,reinstalled but didn't go with the latest updated driver and i can connect now.

Looks like it was a conflict between the drivers then. Glad you got it fixed

i lost connection again. what actually fixed it was changing the channel on the linksys router. everything has been working excellent for two days now. stable and consistant connection.
