Network Stalls / Hangs... PC Freezes

After installing a Netgear WG311 Wireless card we find the internet will hang and freeze the computer.

We were also getting random hangs from time to time.

I have found there is an issue with the Netgear card and compatability with the VIA Chipset, but there was also "talk" of some sort of patch from VIA to fix this issue.

Are you able to point us in the right direction?

Re: Network Stalls / Hangs... PC Freezes

I would start at the Motherboard manufacturer's website. Biostar has some drivers available for download. Make sure that you have the latest chipset drivers.

I think that this is so new that it has not been fixed yet. Try Via at

While loading windows it freezes

You are not saying what version of Windows you are trying to install. There is a common issue with WIN XP installation where at the "33 minutes to go" mark, during device installation, the system just hangs forever. This occurs when WINDOWS is trying to identify and load default drivers for all the motherboard components. If there is a defective component, the install will hang at that point. It is said that after a few successive attempts that WINDOWS will continue past the error, but my experience has not shown this to be true. In my case it was time for a new motherboard.

Sir,i have install 3 sata hdd on my motherboard gigabyte 945 GCM-S2L 1. 160gb 2. 500gb 3. 1 tb. my pc many times hangs on bootup and freezes then i disconnect the cable to turn off. how to fix that...

Do extensive diagnostic tests:

1. Set BIOS to default settings and do not use overclock settings, check.
2. Memory test, download ISO image, burn it onto cd and boot from it.
If memory fails after several hours testing: Replace memory
3. Flash the latest (original)[beta] BIOS version.
4. Connect just one (1) harddisk and test for longer time. *
5. Add second harddisk and test for longer time. *
6. Add third harddisk and test for longer time. *

* If connecting or adding harddisk leads to freezes, exchange that harddisk and retest.

GA-60MM7E Motherboard freezes on any operating system / harddrive / memory combination I try in it. It usually freezes early on (during or just after boot process). It is not overheating. Have removed...

Hi, you can download a manual here:

Try to change the harddrive with a new one
and make a new installation.

I think ist a harddrive failure because it not boots propely.
Does you get a blue screen when it does that ???

Internet problem

MAy I know what OS you are running in the computer SO THAT I can give you more details what proper driver you should install. The driver you just have installed is not may be the driver for your Lan card adapter.
But you may try this web site: and select network driver for *********** board if it a built in internet card but If it is an external card. Please see the manufacturer of your internet card installed to find the specific driver you should install for your Network lan card driver.

Please comment any result so that I can give you more option if it does not solve your problem. Thanks.

Computer Freezes on Internet

Possible problems: If you've replaced both the modem and the router more than once and you still have the problem, then the problem is with your machine, especially considering that two other computers can connect wirelessly without difficulty.

Assuming that the only time your computer freezes is when you are on the internet, most connection oriented issues, such as the one you are describing, are a result of poor or faulty physical connections. So you are correct in thinking that it is a hardware issue. If you haven't replaced the cables between your computer and the router/modem, do this first. If that does not solve your problem then I would say it could be your network adaptor, which is the device that you plug the cable into on the back of your computer.

Most computers have a network adaptor built into the motherboard, so you will need to purchase a pci adaptor and place it into one of the available pci slots on your computer.
After doing so you will want to go into the bios and disable the old adaptor so there are no conflicts. Run the setup disk for the new adaptor and try it out.

On the other hand, if your computer does freeze at other times when you are not on the internet, then the problem could be one of many other possible causes.
