Nope, no printer. Right now, according to the router interface, the only thing on the network is my personal computer (.1.18), the Tivo (.1.3) and a Wii(.1.2)
As far as the IRQ resources, there's nothing in the BIOS that allows changing or messing with that. Just in case, I changed the card from the PCIE x16 slot to the PCIE x1 slot...made no difference.
Next step was to do everything one at a time, attempting a reboot after every step to see exactly where the problem occurred. I restored back to the point before installing the drivers.
First I ran the digital cable advisor tool. No problems. Reboot.
Next, I installed the drivers. Diagnostic tool ran fine. Reboot.
Updated the firmware. No problem. Reboot.
Ran diagnostic tool again, only red x's I saw were that the card needed a CCV signal, that the card hadn't been configured to run in MCE, and that there needed to be more tuning adapters.
Started MCE, ran the setup. Everything installed fine. Asked for the CCV signal. Charter sends it, I have the diagnostic tool open. Nothing changes in the diagnostic tool. I try restarting, still no change. Charter tries again, no change. I decide to try again later, once I'm sure everything is installed. I finish up the installation, close MCE. Diagnostic tool is still starting up, says the same thing.
Reboot. Start diagnostic tool....and diagnostic tool doesn't start. I don't even start MCE and try to reboot. System is currently hanging at the shut down procedure.
So, somewhere during the setting up of the signal, things are going horribly, horribly wrong.
One more thing of note: when shutting down, I get a brief message that windows is waiting for a program to close, but the program close list is completely empty.
