Operating System Version:  XP
Problem Application Name & Version:
Problem Hardware Make & Model:Netgear FA311 network adapter, Intel USB Universal Host Controller
Error Messages:  678
When I try to connect to the internet, message 678 comes up.
Network Adapter & Intel USB controller given the same interrupt request (IRQ) number causing there to be a conflict - no connection to the net via the ethernet.  I tried right click on adapter in device manager to properties/resources, it shows the word "settings" but it isn't highlighted so I can't reassign the number.  Is there another way to assign either hardware device a new number.

If the ethernet card is really that, an add-on card, try moving it a PCI slot up or down than from its present position. That's the only way that I know of to tell WinXP to use another IRQ for that piece of hardware. All other ways, including setting strict IRQs in the BIOS, will be ignored. Unless you reinstall Windows XP.
