Everytime I reboot one of our computers, a network error message comes up:
Micrsoft Networking
Following error while loading protocol #1. Error 59: a network error has occurred.

All the computers network fine despite this error message. It is just kind of annoying. Does anyone have any ideas how to get rid of it?

Thanks!

Take a look at your network properties and determine how many protocols you're loading. Depending upon the network you may only need TCP/IP or TCP/IP and Netbui, etc. Sounds to me like there's an extra protocol that's not needed or supported that the system is attempting to load and use.

What OS is your network running?

Thanks for the responses.

I have three computers on the network. Two with Windows 98 and one with Windows ME. The computer with the error message is Windows 98. There are three IP/ISPs listed - one with dial up adabter, one with Diamond Home PNA and ethernet adapter and one with reaktek RTL8029(AS) PCI Ethernet NIC. The same is true for the 3 NETBeui choices. If I don't run Netbeui, I cannot see my other computers and and IP/ISP is vital to get to the internet. Any suggestions?

I would first check the IP address / subnet mask and common gateway settings on all three computers. Next look at the Netbios names to make sure your not duplicating a computer name as that may also cause it to error. The last and most drastic would be to remove the NIC cards in the 98 machine that's generating the error, boot into safe mode and make sure there are no phantom NIC's left in the system icon. Shut down, reinstall the cards and reload the drivers for them.

My 2 cents.
