I'm trying to debug something.
this sounds illogical to me but I'll ask it:
can a bad NIC driver
on a client wstation attached by ethernet to a router impede the router in such a way that it loses its connectivity... basically "offs" the router?
the second question would be: could an intermittent problem [firmware/hardware] with the workstations's nic do this?
thx for the benefit of your experience?
