Hi
I have Win98 and am using DSL.
Lately I have been having problems with logging on to the internet.

I am told that my year old ethernet card is the problem. Before I get another one I want to make sure that it is the problem.

in the device manager there is a yellow exclamation mark on the ethernet card.

Am using Linksys LNE 100TX(v5) Fast Ethernet Adapter..the error message is **This device is either not present, not working properly or does not have all the drives installed (code 10)

Driveer file details
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\NDIS.VXD
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\vmm32.vxd(ntkern.vxd)

Plus when I log onto windows I keep getting a illegal error (Iesplore)


Thanks again

Pat

1) Remove the device from device manager and reboot.
2) Look around in SAFE mode's Device Mangler to see if there is more than one (remove all).
3) Enter the bios and update the ESCD (perhaps called 'reset configuration data' OR NVRAM)
4) Perhaps it's in an ugly slot - NIC's are usu. happiest when they're not sharing - What slot is it in, and do you have an motherboard manual which gives info on the nature of PCI slots?

Thanks IMM will try that when I get home. Also I did put the card in another slot and it worked for 2 days!

Something else you can do is to go to Network Neighborhood properties, click on the TCP/IP line that contains your ethernet card, highlight it and click remove.
Then, click on add, Protocol, add, Microsoft, TCP/IP

You may need to have your Windows CD handy.

After you reload the new TCP/IP protocol, reboot your system.

From desktop, go to start, run, type in "winipcfg" without quotes.
From the pulldown menu, find your ethernet card and highlight it.

Then click on release all, then renew all, then OK.
Reboot again

This procedure will reset your ethernet configuration and should resolve any conflicts that you had.

Hope this helps,

Darren
