Question Checked IRQs

Ok I checked my IRQs my nic card is using IRQ 11 with have the dam rest of the computers hardware i.e. geforce card and sound card and Via Tech 3038 PCI to USB Universal Host Controller 3 of those. Why is there so many things on that 1 IRQ (11) anyways not to lose the point of this situation, I dont see any free IRQs but should I move it to another IRQ that is less crowded.
2 Programmable interrupt controller
3 Communications Port (COM2)
4 Communications Port (COM1)
5 Creative SB16 Emulation
6 Standard Floppy Disk Controller
7 Printer Port (LPT1)
8 System CMOS/real time clock
9 SCI IRQ used by ACPI bus

13 Numeric data processor
14 Primary Bus Master IDE controller (dual fifo)

Try disabling ACPI to free up some resources. I thin you will find that the reduced functionality of your old mainboard may be the reason that it was better equipped to supply more IRQ's freely.

It is very normal for a IRQ listing to look like this with IRQ 10 or 11 or any other being shared.

It may be possible that setting modem use IRQ as something in BIOS may trigger your ethernet card to a different odd numbered IRQ. This is worth trying.
