am adding the third PC in my network and I have 2 PCs networked through 2

I experienced some "Unexplained Dial-Out" at Server or Client PC.
appears occasionally in the PC when you’re running two or more Internet
applications at the same time. Sometimes shutting down one of the Internet
applications may cause the interface to appear on the screen and dial out
to the Internet. If this happens, click "Hang Up" and dialing will stop
To prevent the problem altogether,
exit your Internet applications before hanging up the Internet connection.

am getting IRQ conflict error from my PC. What should I do?
The most common
and confusing issue is Interrupt IRQ conflicts. Check for available Interrupts (
IRQ 11, 5, 10, 3 or 9 are the sequence that the HN100 card will be searching for
A. Free the
unused interrupts that are occupied by previously installed but no longer
B. On the
other hand, if conflict is found between an existing application and the new HN100
card, the IRQ resources may be marked "unavailable" in the CMOS BIOS prior
to installing HN100 card to prevent the HN100 card from competing for the same
IRQ. The procedure for the above is similar but varies among different PCs. Please
follow your PC hardware manual to perform these. If you are not familiar
with the procedures, ask your PC supplier to clarify these for you.
PC shows the error message as "DMA conflict". What should I do?
encounter this situation, it may be resolved by using a newer version of BIOS for
your PC. Check with your PC hardware supplier for this. In some cases, you may be
able to download the latest copy directly from manufacturer's Web Site.
"Network Neighborhood" sometimes can't reflect the actual situation. What
happened and how can I take care it?
Neighborhood" status information update may be rather slow and not necessarily
reflect the current network configuration. This may occur even after " View
" and receiving an error message, when attempting to contact a physically
disconnected PC. SyGate Manager's network status report is generally
fairly up to date (about 2 seconds for connection and 7 seconds for disconnection
in the interconnect configuration change) in this respect. However,
this is not always true. Sometimes the SyGate Manager may also appear to
be rather unresponsive.
originally working network appears to be disrupted. Network Neighborhood
Windows Explorer can not find the other PCs on the network. What do I do?
A. Do not
to disturb the hardware (such as checking cabling or removing HN100 plug-in cards)
unless it is obviously disconnected.
Exit SyGate Manager on all PCs. Then, start SyGate Manager on Server. Stop and
then Start SyGate Manager, followed by starting Client PC's SyGate Managers. This
may restore the networking. If this does not work, see "C".
Try to "Restart" Windows then start SyGate Managers like in "B".
If the system was
not "badly disturbed", these two procedures may recover the networking.
If the situation is rather severe, Power down the PCs then on again, one
by one starting from
