I am running ubuntu 12.04 on my old desktop and would like to set it up as a file sharing server as well as a HTPC using xbmc.
All seemed to work fine at first but the internet connection goes down every time i connected the ubuntu machine to my router.
the Router crashes and i lose internet on the other computers on the network.
after disconnecting the Ubuntu machine, the internet works once again.
I tried everything suggested on this link: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1803037&page=2
But the problem persists.
Please help, and let me know what information you need from me!
the router is a Mega 200vwr
the motherboard on the ubuntu box is an asrock g31m-vs2.
Thank you - all suggestions will be greatly appreciated
Regards - a new and eager ubuntu user
