    Question USB controller trouble

    Win2K Professional, AbitBp6, Dual cels, Linksys LNE100TX(ver 2.0).

    As far as I can remember there was always a 'conflict flag' associated with
    my USB controller (Intel 82371AB/EB PCI to USB). Here is the message..

    "Your computer's system firmware does not include enough information to
    properly configure and use this device. To use this device, contact your
    computer manufacturer to obtain a firmware or BIOS update. (Code 35)"

    So I proceeded to download the most recent bios from Abit.( ftp://ftp.abit.com.tw/pub/bios/bp6/bp6nj.exe )Updated my Bios. Confilct still exists.

    On a potentially unrelated note, I tried installing my linksys card, with the most recent drivers, (ftp://ftp.linksys.com/pub/network/lne100w1.exe
    ftp://ftp.linksys.com/pub/network/lne100w2.exe (yes, two separate files)
    but to no avail. Btw, when I attempt to run a driver update (executable format) from the command prompt, it seems to read initially, and then the cursor skips to the middle of the command prompt, without writing anything.
    There's still no change after 15 minutes. What does that sort of behavior imply?? Can it be attributed to my current conflicts??

    I then tried relocating my network card to a different slot. Same result.
    Any thoughts, ideas, suggestions...??

    On the www.intel.com website, go to chipsets and download the current chipset for your motherboard.
    Intel has put out a firmware hub update for Windows 2000, and 98.

    The drivers were located on self-extracting executables. For one reason or another, they wouldn't run from a command prompt in Win2k. I had to boot into a pure Dos environment first. With the latest driver the NIC was up and running without a hitch. Still having trouble with the USB controller. Disabled it for the time being. Can anyone confirm, or deny trouble with self-extracting executables in Win2k??


    Can I trouble you for a link to those Win2k chipset updates on Intel's site?? I wasn't able to locate them.

    Tia,

    In BIOS, change the Power Management setting to version 1.1 and the USB hub springs to life!!! Very odd but true. (I think I might have seen this fix somewhere else on this site - sorry if this is the case).
