Freeze on connect to innternet

Recommended Posts


Installed 10.4.6 beautifully!!!

However; 1 slight problem.

When I connect my cat 5 cable to the linksys router; the o.s. locks up.

Disconnect and reboot;everythings fine.

Try to reconnect-lock up;sometimes I can get it to do a netdiag b4 locking up.

It sees my internal broadcomm nic;sees the internet;then;BANG locks up.

Have even gotten the black screen with blinking cursor???

A newbie; but am I missing something here? A setting??? Really strange,

Any help would be appreciated(I'm way new to this-but it installed great)!1

Seems I may have posted in the wrong forum; but more info

Dell E1505 Core Duo t2500

Broadcomm Ethernet NIC Extreme 10/100

Everything installed great;except that ot won't connect to the net

more ifo from -v--- Net Info connection failed for server


As I stated before;when I plug-in;it'll work for one sec thn lockup.

Trying to boot from internal nic gives this error--PXE-E53 no boot filename received


This is getting frustrating;because everything installed fine;except this.


One more time;;; Any Help?

Looked at forum's-no one has answered anything similiar; so ANY help would be appreciated :pirate2:

Broadcomm 10/100 Ethernet NIC-works outta the box

Intel 3945abg- internal WLAN-- not working
