    Well, Im addicted to Azureus and fan subbed anime. So, Im always downloading and uploading a lot.

    My problem is that after a while ( a few hours ) of solid downloading/uploading, the internet will completely cease to work on this computer. I have to reboot it. The other computer that is on the same router, still gets onto the net fine.

    I have a Intel Pro 1000 CT integrated network card on my Abit IC7-G with the newest drivers. Is there something I can configure differently to prevent this from happening? I hate leaving downloads/uploads over night to find that 3 hours into them, they just quit working.

    Install a PCI NIC and see whether you get the same problem when using that NIC for those downloads.
