    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.

    HP Omnibook, Windows 98 SE

    Windows XP Pro
    Realtek NIC
    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).
    #include <cmath>
    #include <complex>
    bool euler_flip(bool value)
        return std::pow
            std::complex<float>(0, 1) 
            * std::complex<float>(std::atan(1.0)
            *(1 << (value + 2)))
        ).real() < 0;
