I have a Windows ME Thinkpad notebook that locks up soon after I connect it
to a small office network. Internet Explorer and/or Active Desktop crash as
soon as I try to surf the net. Oddly enough, the computer works fine on
another networks. A different LAN card makes no difference. It appears
there's something about the small office network that is triggering the
problem. The network uses a D-Link 604 router which is connected to a cable
modem. Does anyone have any ideas as to what could cause this problem?

Thank you,
Steve Smith
