tcp/ip binding and other problems!!!
Hello, we have quite a few microns here with the 3c905tx nic card.
About 50% of the time they work properly. However the other half of the
time they just don't bind with tcp/ip. The computer is a p200mmx, 32mb
ram, 3c905tx 3com nic. On one computer
right now there is Netware Intranet client, ipx/spx protocol, and
tcp/ip. However the tcp/ip isn't binding to anything, so all programs
that require tcp/ip do not work. I have tried removing tcp/ip,
restarting adding it again etc... It doesn't bind. Have you heard
anything like this, this is under windows95. Usually after formatting
the hard drive and reinstalling windows95 everything works right,
however we can't do that on all the machines. Hope you can help, thanks
I had to laugh when I read your post!!! The reason, I love those 3Com cards!! Good PnP wars there!!! I have had similiar problems with the entire 3C905XXX series. You got to out think them!!! Having used95/98 /NT on each, i'd do the following.
1. Delete the Card in Device Manager, reboot,enter BIOS, reset, reboot, install drivers for card, install Services, Protocols etc. This should work
2. If it doesn't work, LOL, remove from device manager, shut down, remove the card, reboot, BIOS, reset, shutdown, reinstall card then reconfigure with drivers, services, portocols etc.!!!
Having come across "bindings" problems for the TCP Stack on various 3Com Cards, everything says it works, but it don't!!! The above 2 steps will cure the problem. Also the latest drivers from their site help also with diagnostics
