Setting up my cable modem and coming across the following:
Switch on pc, boots up, CPU running about 1-2% when everythings loaded up. As soon as i connect the cable modem to the pc via the ethernet cable the CPU shoots up to 100% and stays there. If i disconnect it the cpu drops back down to 1-2%. HELP!!! I've connected my laptop to the pc using the same network card (all beit with a crossover cable) and it works fine.
