  • If you do a search in the forums, you'll find that others have had trouble with nForce-based motherboards. Have you considered simply buying a PCI NIC (I like Intel NICs) and disabling the on-board NIC?

  • You can see if the "chipset driver" package for Windows XP includes a NIC driver.

  • Ken, Thank you for the reply. Unfortunately the unit doesnt have any slots so the next option is a usb nic. I was just hoping to be able to offer a nice small unit for my customers. I am curious how the HP LX195 does it? This is the same motherboard with the same nic (it is theirs after all). Any/all thoughts are appreciated!
