  1. i have a pentium 3 733 mhz pc with winxp networked to a pentium4 2.6ghz pc by wireless linksys setup. i put a nvidia fx 5200 video card in the pentium 3 pc and now it won't connect to the host pentium 4. the motherboard in the pentium3 is an intel(easton)d815eea. shouldn't this board take the fx 5200? when i take it out it hooks right up. am i doing something wrong or is this card and mobo non-compatible.

    I have the same problem, i installed a XFX geforce fx 5200 256mb graphics card in my system and my wireless network - connected through a belkin wireless card will no longer work.

    What manufacturer is your card - is it XFX like mine? Also, is it the 256mb version or the 128mb card?

    I've just sent an email to XFX about this, if they give a helpful response, I'll post it here.
