Neworking card is causing modem to reset constantly
I have comcast internet and I ran Avanquest system 8 to optimize my computer and unfortunately it reset my network card so that it keeps causing my modem to reset itself thus losing internet connection within 1 minute. How can fix this? Comcast came out today and used another computr to find that it is my computer that is the problem. I am using an Nvidia nForce MCP Networking controller card

Unplug your Comcast modem from your electrical outlet. Connect the Ethernet cord from the back of your Comcast modem into the Ethernet port labeled "Internet" on your new router. Connect an available Ethernet port from the back of the new router to the Ethernet port on the back of your computer.
Plug your cable modem into an electrical outlet. Plug your new router in an electrical outlet.
Reboot your computer. Click on "Start," then "Control panel." Click "Network and sharing." Select "Set up a new home network."
Click on the option for a router or cable modem when prompted by Windows to select your hardware. Your computer will attempt to access your new router. When the brand name for your router is listed, double-click it so your computer can configure itself to the new router.
Create a new name for your home network and create a unique password to prevent unauthorized users on your network. Your computer may reset your Comcast modem and router so your new changes can take effect.
GO TO CONTROL PANEL THEN CLICK ON ADMINISTRATIVE TOOLS. THEN CLICK COMPUTER MANAGEMENT THEN CLICK DEVISE MANAGER. THEN ON THE RIGHT SIDE YOU WILL SEE SOUND VIDEO AND GAME CONTROLLERS. CLICK THE + SIGN.FIND YOUR AUDIO DRIVER AND DISABLE IT THEN CLICK SCAN FOR HARDWARE CHANGES. THEN GO BACK IN AND TURN YOUR AUDIO DRIVERS BACK ON THIS WILL RESET IT.
On Dell computers it is rare that the XP install disk properly reinstalls your Network Card drivers. If you have the Device Drivers CD that came with your dell (usually a blue or gray disk) you can install the drivers (usually a Broadcom or Intel NIC /LAN or Network Interface driver) then your PC can "see" internet connections. The CD will show you all the drivers you can install with a check mark next to each that apply to your system.
If you do not have the CDROM, go to support.dell.com on another PC and enter your system tag# (on the bottom or back) and look in "Network" and find the driver there. There are a few options so you might need to try several drivers till you find the one that works. 90% of Dell pc's come with Broadcom so try that first. save the driver to a disk or flash drive and run it on the PC in question.
You also will likely need drivers for the video card and chipset as well.
The NIC (network interface card) is integrated into the motherboard of the 2400 computer. Most likely that circuit is bad. To fix it you’ll have to replace the motherboard or purchase a NIC card and install it into one of the PCI slots on the motherboard.

commands one by one and press Enter REGSVR32 MSHTMLED.DLL REGSVR32 JSCRIPT.DLL REGSVR32 /i MSHTML.DLL
If this does not help, reinstall
This is where you should be in contact with Comcast Tech Support 1-888 262-6300.
The INSTALL tech should have had you on-line before he left.
You need to conect your TV/Computer Cable to a Cable modem and a CAT 5 cable to your NIC (Network Interface Card)
All the lights on the modem should be on except the TEST light and the DATA light should be blinking.
You may have OLD drivers for the Cable modem, download those from another computer from the modem MFG.
Nothing else is required.
