I'm not sure if the design of the Audrey or just this peice of ####e network adapter, but I've just about had it. This thing is going to drive me to DRINK! I finally get ahold of the Holy Audrey Grail... A KLSI chip NIC (Netgear EA101c), I go through all the rigamarole to change the VID/PID (see macparse threads) on a Win2K box. (Thanks to the person that posted the INF file for Win2K, BTW.)
So Audrey FINALLY recognizes a NIC, but it doesn't work too well. Ok, not to worry. I unplug the audrey, check the connections and fire it back up. Hey hey... It works. 2 mins (if that) later, it says I've disconnected the adapter and won't connect. I disconnect it, wait a few secs, plug it back up... Voila! Up again.
Unfortunately, this "cycle of pain", as I have now deemed it, continues. If it runs for 10 mins, I'm jumping for joy. One thing is for sure. If my Audrey is the problem, I've got 2 friends in the same boat. I've tested this on both of theirs and had the same problem.
For anyone interested, here are the images I've used to test it with:
Stock Audrey (First RC, I believe)
And I used Jukebox USB1 briefly, but I had the same issues I had using a D-Link DSB-650 (Pegasus 1)
Anyone have any ideas or am I tossing this thing out a car window while going 80MPH?
(Sorry for the rant, I'm having a REALLY bad day... First this headache, then my DirecTivo died(1 week old!) and now my receiver is stuck in "Analog Only" mode for no apparent reason... That's OK, I never wanted to watch a movie in DD or DTS again anyway!)
Fu(ll of angst)
