I had the strangest network error on my Dell Precision, onboard 3c59x
recently (drove my wireless ISP nuts). I was seeing a huge amount of packet
loss on linux, and surfing was a nightmare. Ethereal was showing all sorts
Was setting up a pc (ubuntu) for an in-law at home and noticed this
machine had no problems. With a live cd on my own machine I also had no
problems... Decided to load ubuntu onto my machine and all was well until I
loaded the nvidia binary drivers... and the network errors returned. This
also affects XP, while the 2d nv is fine.....
Switched graphics cards and now the network is OK with 3d graphics !!
Only cause I can think of if interference from the card to the nic when in 3d
mode... either way...pretty wierd
