Yep, took me a bit but I got it, and then had to restart my machine since I lost connection, thanks, going to try now, will let you know how it goes.

Unfortunately the file in the RapidShare RAR is for 32-bit, so it did not work.

Ah, that might be the problem, I was using 15.51, I'll try the 15.25s now.

Edit: Or I would, if I could find it...Ugh. 15.51 is the only choice available it seems.

Go with that then. It's updated. If that doesn't work, probably nothing will.

Yeah, I *think* I found the reason it didn't work the first time around -- I've got 2 Nvidia network adapters and I only updated 1. I'm running a stress test on it now to see if/when I get it to break, playing City of Heroes, downloading a torrent, and watching a long HQ video on youtube. IF this works then my problems are finally over.

22 mins no problem so far. Got about 40 mins to go though since I've had random intervals of connectivity between 15-60 mins before dropping, I'm feeling good about this though.

Edit: Looking at "Local Area Connection 2 Status" it says IPv4 Connectivity: Internet and IPv6 Connectivity: No network access - this should not concern me, correct?
