I used to have my desktop PC plugged directly into my DSL modem but now I have the PC and the modem plugged into the pix and now quite often my NIC will stop sending and receiving data completly, I check the status on the pix interface and its up/down. Windows reports as connected. If I disable the NIC then try and re-enable it crashes.
When the interface fereezes up, if I plug the PC directly into the modem it still won;t work. although this points to the NIC on the PC being at fault it never happened before the pix was int he picture.
has anyone seen this before? when it works, it works perfect, no error counters or anything, I have tried various speed and duplex settings but once interface has frozen the only thing to bring it back up is a cold boot of the pc and pix.
