For over a year, while playing W101, the little circle with the chain breaking in it, would show up. Over and over, usually once or twice a night, it would show up, a real pain. Sometimes it would drop me back, to the wizard selection screen, sometimes the screen would just refresh, and come back. I had always thought this was a problem with W101, and maybe the update had created the problem. It turns out, that I have a XPS computer, and the Network cards in them are faulty. They replaced the motherboard for me, but the problem with W101 showed back up after a few weeks. Finally, we put a new Network card in, and the problem was solved. We disabled the onboard Network card, and now no screen hesitation and no network drop outs.
I know others have been seeing this same issue, and I wanted to let them know what the problem is, especially if they have an XPS computer.
