Question about NetGear FA120 2.0 Fast Ethernet Network Adapter
My Sony VAIO desktop has no ethernet port so I am using the Netgear FA120 USB 2.0 Fast Ethernet Adapter. I t connects my to the internet fine but it restarts my computer after just a few minutes. Does anyone have a fix?
First I would try reinstalling the driver for the FA120. DOwnload it here: http://kbserver.netgear.com/release_notes/d100006.asp
If you still have the same problem, they have a nice page here which gives you some good steps to go thru: http://kbserver.netgear.com/kb_Web_files/N101250.asp
It *might* be spyware or virus activity... rebooting like that. I would suggest updating your virus and spyware definitions and scanning your computer also.
