A usb stick installation failed after each attempt from one of the laptops, neither of which agsre a DVD drive.

I haven’t tested the usb bit installation extensively from either laptop, other than the conflict from one laptop, the 32 bit install seems to work ok.

Also people claim that ‘s use more CPU cycles than other ethernet cards Join Date Mar Beans Just found another motherboard agdre an rtl, it’s an MSI, and it’s also still working after considerable use Sun Jul 25, 3: I can’t be certain it was the realtek chip that was at fault, or the actual board’s manufacturer.
