Hello all!

I have done quite a bit of googling and home troubleshooting, I cannot figure this one out. I have a single computer that once it goes onto the network and start to pull an internet connection it knocks out the whole internal network to the router, modem and all other devices connected. Their is no outward connection, no internal connection.

Current equipment is:
4x Computers
RT-N66U Router
Standard Verizon Modem

All the network is fine until one computer goes online, that is my computer that has the ASUS Sabertooth X79 motherboard which is hard wired into the network. It will then crash the whole network once it starts calling outward connections, if it sits idle it is just fine.

I would try to uninstall and reinstall the drivers for the NIC. If that doesn't work I would try another network card.

Step 1 - try a different port
Step 2 - try a different cable
Step 3 - Try updating the router firmware
Step 4 - Update mobo nic driver
==EDIT== Missed a step, try a Linux LiveCD
Step 5 - try a different router
Step 6 - Buy an Intel NIC.

BONUS OPTIONS -
Step 7 - Connect mobo with problem directly to the modem and crash your whole ISP
Step 8 - Find an internet backbone and crash the whole web.
