so i'm runnign 64 bit vista on a self built machine... anytime i plug in an ethernet cable my computer freezes after between 15-45 min. It took me forever to figure out what was causing the problem but i'm now 99% sure that's what it is. As it hasn't frozen since yesterday and i have been unplugged since then. I plugged it back in today and froze shortly thereafter. I am now running wireless but want to be plugged in asap.
Regardless i think it must be some sort of conflict but i can't find anything that looks especially out of place in the device manager. And according to that all drivers are also up to date.
The ethernet adaptor is also attached to my motherboard if that makes any difference.
