Network disaster

I have a Dell Dimension 4600 with a built in network connection. On my previous computer I connected to my router with a Linksys USB adapter connected to an RJ 45 cable. Sadly there seems to be a conflict on this machine and it keeps crashing, the only way to overcome this is to disable hyperthreading (still crashes but not so often). So I thought why not utilise the network port (Intel Pro 100 V), however it appears that ther is plenty of traffic up but none down so my router is not sendding anything to the computer. Any ideas would be gratefully received.

Not really sure what you mean ... could you explain what the conflict is / what it is between ... in device manager are there any yellow triangles? At a command prompt if you type
IPCONFIG /ALL
can you copy and paste in here.

Conflict was probably a bad description, basicaly the machine crashes and I have pinned the source down to the adapter. I have included the details which are specific to the Linksys adapter below. My real question is why I can only send traffic but not receive using the built in ethernet port (all firewalls turned off including on the router).

The first section of that shows IP routing enabled and wins proxy enabled which is usally for ICS (PC acting as host when no router is involved). But I'm not familiar with the tunneling adapters displayed.

<<< IP Address. . . . : fe80::213:10ff:fedb:fca7%5 >>>

You appear to have "Microsoft TCP/IP Version 6" installed. Unless there is a specific reason for you to be using version 6, rather than the standard version 4, uninstall it. In the Network Connections folder, right click the Local Area Connection, select Properties, highlight "Microsoft TCP/IP Version 6" and click Uninstall, as shown click here

keewaa,

<<< But I'm not familiar with the tunneling adapters displayed >>>

These entries appear as a result of TCP/IP V6 emulating a connection over TCP/IP V4 protocol.

Ah, v6, yea the Ip addresses seemed odd. I'll know what they are next time. Thanks.
