Windows 7: Should i check box for enabled for network address?

I'll have to think a bit on the inactive delete - it's a round-a-bout way if I recall.

Don't sweat anything on the PC side for now.

Thanks for the Artheros driver information. That's what I thought, but wanted to double check.

Thanks so much Bill , you have been incredibly helpful and patient . Currently i am not getting the DNS messages anymore , don't know why but everything seems to be pretty good thanks to you.

That being the case i think i will just use the PC for now and keep track of it and let you concentrate your efforts on others who need assistance.

I will keep the driver and we can pick this up at a later date if something goes a little wacky or if i am having issues that are troublesome .

You are a Godsend my friend and i appreciate your help and expertise more than you know .
I will keep in touch and let you know how things develop .

Thanks again

You're welcome Jonny.

Good to hear that the DNS messages are no longer an issue - not sure exactly what changed that (ATMC review & new Cable modem perhaps).

Sounds like a sound plan - hold on to the driver update until an issue requires a driver update.
If an issue does crop up, post as much information as you can.

You can short hand things, such as
error code: 0x00000000
error msg: Page could not be loaded
event msg:The XYZ service failed to start

a short explanation:
IE 11 - I was trying to go to the ABC website ( and got the following error (code, msg...)
I can (or cannot) go to other websites (,

If members need more information, they will ask.

My pleasure working through this issue with you.
