    NetGear Wireless Network (Windows XP / IE6)

    I am encountering an error when accessing the internet after having installed the above.
    When I get the next shutdown message I will endeavour to capture it. Basically it says it is shutting me down because of NT Authority or something like that.
    Do I need to change a setting in IE? I know this does not explain it too well but I don't get much chance to capture it.

    It sounds like a permissions problem. Are you logged in as an administrator? And have you check Netgear's support website to see if there are any documented issues regarding this problem? It would also help if you could provide a model number, any software you installed - whatever details you can provide. At this point there is not much to go on besides suspecting permissions.

    My memory is fading... there was a worm that attacked the RPC port that would cause the computer to shut down almost immediately after it was connected to the Internet. Can you get a firewall up, and/or can you stay off the Internet long enough to disable the RPC service(s)?

    Thanks jscher2000.
    Memory fade....no way Jose, it was the worm that attacked the RPC port. It was the Blaster.c and Blaster.e worms that was causing a problem.
    Hans pointed me in the right direction though.

    Thanks for your input Mark, but it had nothing to do with installing the NetGear card. Although I inadvertantly turned off a checkbox which let others access my computer (silly me), cannot remember where it was now, but I have turned it back on so I am hoping I'll be safe for a while.

    It can make one wish for a control panel entry that simply read "Checkboxes and buttons" <img src=/S/exclamation.gif border=0 alt=exclamation width=15 height=15>

    That would just be the several thousand checkboxes and buttons, wouldn't it? <img src=/S/yikes.gif border=0 alt=yikes width=15 height=15>

    Ita, esto, quidcumque...

    But we'll design the interface to hide the ones you haven't used recently. <img src=/S/laugh.gif border=0 alt=laugh width=15 height=15>
