    Computer stalls when networked

    I'm attempting to give my laptop network access, and I started by buying a PCMCIA network card. After a lot of hoohah, I managed to get it functioning at least the slightest bit. I have been able to access my desktop and take files off it, through the Explorer interface. The problem is, sometimes, seemingly intermittently, the laptop will freeze/stall/lock up when the cable is plugged in. I've installed all the protocols, the proper drivers etc, as well as reinstalling Windows. Is anyone familiar with this problem.

    Laptop:
    HP Omnibook, Windows 98 SE
    ST Labs PCMCIA NIC

    Desktop:
    Windows XP Pro
    Realtek NIC
    benforbes@optusnet.com.au
    Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003 Enterprise Architect
    Windows XP Pro

    It's probably just a buggy driver. Did you try another NIC on it? Also, it could be you set it up on a port that's conflicting with another device - try setting it up on a different one (make sure that the proper IRQ is associated with that port, too).
    Code:
    #include <cmath>
    #include <complex>
    bool euler_flip(bool value)
    {
        return std::pow
        (
            std::complex<float>(std::exp(1.0)), 
            std::complex<float>(0, 1) 
            * std::complex<float>(std::atan(1.0)
            *(1 << (value + 2)))
        ).real() < 0;
    }
