www.troubleshooters.com/tpromag/200310/200310.htm#_My_Story I experienced something like this, recently. Isn't this the damnest thing!? It tries my soul to think about how many times this could have been the real problem, or could have been complicating a problem.

turn on printer and broadband turns into dialup by `AMD tower
A neighbor installed a Canon printer in an XP system with Comcast broadband cat5'ed to a nic card. With the printer off, all is as usual. Hit the power switch and the internet screeches to a snail's pace. Just like, or even worse than dial-up. Anybody have any ideas on what's causing this?

When adding a hard drive by SHRED
With one DVD/CD burner. Is it better to set the added hard drive as a "slave" on the same IDE channel as the existing hard drive or set the DVD/CD burner as a "slave" to one of the hard drives and run the additional hard drive on it's own channel?
