Title: XP restart after installing netgear router
Post by: LEE on 20:36, Fri 14 November 2008
Up till last weekend I have been using without any problem

Windows XP Media Centre PC

Cable Modem

Azureus installed to download torrents etc etc.

Then I purchased a Netgear WGR614UK wireless router from which gets its internet connection from the cable modem then goes into the PC !! The internet works fine and so does the wireless connection via my laptop.

When I load Azureus on the PC after about 5 minutes the computer will restart itself. I have used the computer all day without using azureus and it is fine but when I start azureus it will restart xp !!

Has anyone got any idea what could be causing this as it has only happened since I got the wireless router.

I suppose the first thing anyone will tell you to do is check you have the latest drivers for it.

There is a 'tick box' somewhere in Control Panel / System which allows you to unselect 'Automatically restart this computer', maybe this will work.

Sorry i can't go into much detail, i'm thinking from the top of my head, i'm a Linux freak now.  :shock:

This might explain it better. (

Also have a look on the Microsoft support website, there might be some known issues already raised. (

I thought about unticking the box in the control panel to stop it restarting after errors but thats just dodging the problem, also its not randomly restarting as its only doing it when I use Azureus downloading files which makes me think that its got rto be something to do with the Router !!
