What do I need in Win95 Network config?

We have a LAN and WAN with Win95 clients and Solaris 2.5.1
servers. We also have a Novell 3.12 server. The Win95 clients are authenticated by Solstice NFS client 3.1 and
login to the Novell server as well.
In my Win95 network configuration I have the following protocols:

IPX/SPX
NETBEUI for Dial-up
NETBEUI for my Ethernet Adapter
TCP/IP for Dial-up
TCP/IP for my Ethernet Adapter

I'm using the client for Microsoft Networking and the client
for Netware Networks, in addition to Solstice NFS Client.

I don't think I need all these protocols. Especially NETBEUI. Can you advise me on this Win95 network configuration.

How can I improve my system performance?
I'm using a Pentium 120Mhz with 64MB RAM.
I notice a delay in starting applications, and in shutting down Win95.

Thanks for your help!

You might remove Netbeui. TCP/IP will take over!
IPX is needed by netwere if I am correct.

Improving your system performance depends on lots of things but don't expect much with a 120MHz cpu if you are also using this system for other purposes than networking at the same time. 64 MB RAM is not much when you do lots of 'parallel' filetransfers but I guess you have a 10Mbit network, so the transfer speed will be the bottleneck.

Disable DHCP if you don't have a DHCP server running in your LAN. Otherwise you will have a delay during Windows startup.

Try the ping command to find slow TCP/IP connections in your LAN.
