Hey guys I got a question here. We have a laptop that has constant problem browsing the network, when i look at the properties for it i see that it is sending billions and sometimes trillions of packets and only recieving a few. I have tried reinstalling the driver for the network adapter and reinstalling all the network protocols, also i have flushed dns and renew the IP, tried repairing the connection, i see no processes that would be doing this. I have even tried a new latop shell just to see if it was a hardware problem and it was still sending billions of packets right when windows boots up. Any suggestions?

1. Check for spyware. Download AdAware and/or Spyboy Search & Destroy.
2. Replace the cable.
3. Try a different port in the switch or hub.
4. Try a different LAN adapter.

2, 3, and 4 can be easily tested all at once by plugging the laptop in at someone else’s desk. If the traffic problem goes away, one of the three is the culprit and you can do each individually to find out which is causing the problem.

    Try strapping the card to half duplex, and or 10mbs. Also you may want to try falling back to an older driver...
