Win XP crashes related to broadband?
Posted on 2003-12-04
One of the computers on my network keeps crashing from time-to-time, for no apparent reason.
The only unique thing about the computer which crashes is that it is connected to the BT's Broadband. I have tried re-installing (even started from an fdisk), but it continues to crash.
OS: Windows XP
I suspect the problem is related to the internet connection: Not only is it the only computer with a direct connection, on one particular day when BT were suffering with several problems, the PC crashed more than usual, but only ever when I was connected to the internet.
Crashes are generally occasional (perhaps one a day, or one every other day), which makes it extremely difficult to diagnose.
Any ideas what might be causing these crashes? And more to the point, how I can prevent them?
