Try using static IP addresses for all boxes - i.e. 192.168.0.xxx
The internet-connected box (gateway) should be 192.168.0.1
I've had trouble before and this seemed to solve it.
However, your game errors make me wonder if it's not software. Do you have a spare hard disk, upon which you can do a clean windows install? If so, remove the computer's main disk, and put in the spare. Install Losedows and your games (DO NOT ACTIVATE windows, doing so too many times will disable your license key...!) and try again.
The NIC - same model, same brand, or completely different? Also try to get updated drivers, and try both the built-in windows drivers and the packaged drivers for the card.
