Why hang up on "applying computer settings" after new NIC installed?

An integrated NIC died in one of my MS2003 servers that runs Blackberry Enterprise Server, so I installed a new Linksys 10/100 PIC NIC.

I configured it with all the same IPs as the old one and got the message about another NIC having the same IP blah blah blah and asked if I wanted to change the current one. I clicked on NO and carried on. I had success. Was able to connect to the web, ping the AD, etc.

Then I noticed that the Blackberry's were not working so figured I should do a reboot. I logged back in and then was stuck forever on "applying computer settings". What I had to do was power off the server, unplug the network cable, boot up, log in, plug in the cable, and then I restarted the service from the Blackberry software and everything worked.

My question is, why the hang up on computer settings since the new NIC?

Probably a remnant of the old NIC card, was it onboard? If so, did you disable it in the BIOS?

Its a DNS issue -
All your NIC cards should be disabled except for one.  Unless you really know what your doing...

Next in the tcpip settings of the lan connection you need to make sure that the DNS server is set to itself or another INTERNAL DNS server NOT an isp dns server
