3C905B that won't go to microsoft.com

3C905B that won't go to microsoft.com

3C905B that won't go to microsoft.com

I'm not really asking for any kind of help, it's just one of the most curious things that has ever happened to me. I encountered a network card (3C905B) which does not go to any kind of domain with "microsoft" in it. microsoft.com, windowsupdate, nothing. Tried everything. Switched cards, and it worked just fine. Just wondering if it happened anywhere else out there or if I'm just a special lucky guy?


RE: 3C905B that won't go to microsoft.com

I think you are just a lucky guy.  3c905b is one of 3coms more stable cards.

I would keep it as a novelty though.

RE: 3C905B that won't go to microsoft.com

Yeah, what's even better, it goes anywhere else. weather, excite, yahoo, etc etc etc. It just hates microsoft for some reason... personal issues, I guess. But I think I will keep it as a novelty, thanks for the suggestion! :)

run a virus scanner, you might have a virus in your pc.
