      BSOD Blue screen of death caused by router update?

      My old style white router died so Sky sent me out the newer black one. At around the same time, I started getting BSOD, particularly on startup (30%). Could this be down to the new router? I run a laptop so this has been the only change of hardware. I struggled to uninstall software version 2, so left it at that.

      I doubt it will be anything to do with the router as you don't need drivers loaded for it to work.

      It could be the Wireless manager if you are using one, if so, have you tried windows own wireless manager?

      Have you tried a system restore to an earlier date that was stable?

      Re: BSOD Blue screen of death caused by router update?

      The CD installation doesn't contain any drivers?
      What's it for then?
      Can I uninstall everything I installed from the CD?

      The CD is basically a coaster to keep your drinks on

      It does have a free antivirus on but you can get better off the net (avast).

      You don't need the CD to use Sky, it does have the original router firmware on which I suppose you may need one day (but I doubt it).

      The CD installs the McAfee software if wanted, updates IE if needed and creates a shortcut to the skybroadband website on the desktop. No drivers for the router just a copy of the firmware if it is needed at any time.

      And as the OP has changed to a newer router the CD is of no use whatsoever.
