Nope, never got the IRQs the way I wanted them. I changed over to a Linksys USB ethernet adapter and
that solved the networking instability, but the video and USB still share an IRQ (dammit!)
I've got the same problem with my desktop machine, the PCI video shares with just about everything.
When I get it alone, then the sound card isn't on IRQ11 and it won't work!
PCI scanning is what does the "sharing". You can change the IRQ assignment order in a desktop by
changing the slots of cards, but that can't be done on an I-opener. Unless there is something in
Window's registery, I don't think we'll ever have enough control over the IRQ assignments.
Just another victim of "plug-n-play" I guess....
