When you use a Xircom CE2 network adapter on a computer running Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional, Windows 2000 may stop responding (hang) when the network adapter is under heavy usage.

To work around this behavior, upgrade to a later version of the Xircom CE2 network adapter or to its successor, the Xircom CE3. Visit the following Xircom, Inc. Web site for more information about current Xircom products:


Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional.
