I just purchased a new mac pro, and for the most part I love it. It came with dual 2.8Ghz Xeon's, 2gigs memory, and the 8800 GT option. I have 8 gigs more memory on order from OWC. I know the 2.8's are the slowest option, but I am a poor architecture student, and the vast majority of programs I use are already optimized for multi-core architecture so the speed was not too much of an issue. I have the newest Leopard and Vista 64-bit set up with boot camp. For the most part, I love it. But unfortunately I have been the victim of near constant kernel panics. Anytime I am using the internet, or using iTunes and it connects to the internet, a kp will usually occur. Sometimes it takes 5 minutes, other times a few hours, but it happens every time. The computer is connected wirelessly through a Hawking USB wireless stick because I am retarded and only realized after I received it that my room did not have an Ethernet plug. The only programs I have installed on the OSX HD are Adobe CS3 Master Collection, Firefox 3.0, and the drivers for the Hawking USB stick. I have called Apple Care and per their advice I completely wiped and re-installed Mac OSX, which fixed the problem for about a week, then the kp's started happening again. I have ran the diagnostic tool thingy you can download from Apple if you purchase Apple Care and everything passes fine. Vista is installed on its own HD so I do not believe it is causing any issues either. After researching the kp (it's the "mbuf free..." one) I believe it may be caused by the Hawking stick, as the only source I could find for it was Apple's own airport drivers, another wireless utility. Does anyone here have any advice on helping me find a solution to this problem. This is my first Mac and honestly it's pretty depressing that after spending 4 grand (had to get a 30" cinema display...it matches) I cant trust my Mac to do anything internet related without getting a kp. So far the only thing that's worked flawlessly is Vista...that cant be a good thing. I appreciate anyone's help! Thanks in advance!
