Been using ESS since a day after b1 was released. Since installing it, I have been on the receiving end of a very, very strange complete loss of network activity that is: Not resolved by uninstalling/reinstalling (and in fact, the system freezes on uninstall); Not resolved by using a Winsock fix linked elsewhere on this forum; Not resolved by using the installer to somehow manage a full uninstall, and; Not resolved by then doing a fresh reinstall. Since I begun testing the suite, this has happened about three times. In each case, I have confirmed that it is NOT the following: Problem on my ISP's end; A modem or router issue; A NIC or ethernet cable problem. What's odd is that a full restore via Acronis TrueImage does NOT fix the problem. I've found that the only thing that seems to help is installing an old .11b wireless networking card. On two occasions, all I did was seat the card in a PCI slot, and upon reboot, the net connection was working just fine. No drivers were installed for the wireless card, and in fact, the card doesn't even show in the device manager. My wireless router is currently operating in wired-only mode, and here I am. I have since reverted to using Nod32 v2.7 in the meantime since I simply haven't got the patience (or time, lately) to deal with such a problem again in the event that it is related to ESS. Does anyone have any idea why this happened over and over?
