I have a Warp v4.0 system and on the PC I have a 3COM 509B
(ethernet 16bit) card installed. I cannot make "net start req" to work! I have a message stating that something is
wrong with the cable, which is untrue because I can ping
through the same cable. I haven't tried netbios over tcp
but i have tried NetBios alone...

Please help!

If your net is a TCP/IP then you must use both TCP/IP AND TCP/IP over NetBIOS. This is setup when installing your networking card. I have had about the same problem. My 3COM also had to be configured to COAX and not the T-base10, but since you can ping
through it then that should not be a problem.

Hope this is of some guidance...

So, if I got it straight.

You tell me that I should use TCPIP, and NETBIOS over TCPIP
(not TCPIP and NETBIOS).

I will try this. What I want to do is to make a domain with
Peer and have two computers sharing resources. The one computer
has IBM Peer and the other has Win'95 or Win NT workstation v4.
I want to have TCPIP on the same cable as well ...

Can I Do it ?

Ok, I did it...

The problem was (somehow) the 3COM. I changed it for
an Intel Etherexpress and it works (both TCPIP & Netbios)
I have :
0 IBM TCPIP
0 IBM NetBios
1 Netbios over TCPIP

Thanks for all of your support!
This is a known problem with 3Com cards.  To get the "Cable Error" to go away, use the 3c5x9cfg program to configure the card, and set the "Modem Baud Rate" to 9600 baud or lower.

This should solve it (I have had the same problem with my 3c5x9 ISA card).
