I have a '95.a machine, with Client for MS Networks, NIC and TCP/IP installed.  When the machine boots, there is no prompt for a network logon at all.  Start-Shutdown-Close All will return a logon prompt that does work.

- Logon IS set to microsoft client for networks.
- Card does function; does get DHCP address.

Thanks,
Scott

Try this, goto the registry to Disable password Caching,
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Mircosoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Network Create a new Binary Value,
         DisablePwdCaching     01 00 00 00
Automatic Logon to Profile in windwos
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Network\Real Mode Net Make sure Value "Autologon" either does NOT exist, or value is set to 1.

Good Luck

Here are some things to try;

1.) Check that the network adapter has been detected - use the device manager in control panel

2.) In network properties,click on "Client for Microsoft Networks" and then click "Properties"

3.)  Ensure that "Logon To a WindowsNt Domain" is selected and the domain name is correctly filled in!

4.) Next click on the "Access Control" tab and ensure that "User Level Access Control" is selected.  Enter the name of Your WindowsNt Domain

5.) Close control panel and restart your computer!

If you have problems, add NetBeui to both the server and Win95 client (as there could be a problem with your TCP/IP stack)
