it didn't happen with xp running on the same machine. i doubt it would happen with the network cable out. when more than one wireless device is active is when it happens, as right now i can see noone is active besides my wired computer. noone else is online right now.
i did lock down the router to only dish out dhcp to 5 devices, which are all taken by entries (right now it's this machine, my bdplayer, and three wireless devices from upstairs), so maybe it has something to do with someone else trying to get in and since this machine is first in line in the range, the router is trying to take my address away? maybe not because whenever i reboot after a bsod, i could get my old address back.
i guess i should make more room, and see if that solves it.
i like that bsod viewer. i've used nirsofts videocacheview in the past. unfortunately i used ccleaner on my machine last night, and it cleared the dumpfiles that were generated...
but all it said was pretty much exactly what was listed in the example bsod on that nirsoft page.
if it happens again, i'll get that dumpfile.
