I have purchased a LinkSys 10/100 PCI and installed it with the Tulip
driver (The original was the RTL8139 for the D-Link). Same results.
Today, if I get time I will swap a D-Link from a WinBlows box with the
LinkSys and see if the difficulties swap ends. I have a friend who is
going to loan me a 3-Com in a week or so. If the problem hasn't been
resolved by then, I will be swapping cards all over the place<G>

No Problem. I wish to leave no stones unturned before I lock down the
network to 10BaseT <G>
Have a good day!
