Running OS 8.5.1 on a PowerMac 7600.  Everytime I restart, and try to access the network it shows no zones available. I have to go into the Appletalk control panel and switch the connection form parallel to ehternet everytime. Then it works fine.  Any explanation for it not saving the changes.

This problem isn't because of OS 8.5.1. I encountered a similar problem even in OS 7.5.5 and OS 8.1.

The source of the problem is not the System -- Try checking the Hardware.

If you're connected to the ethernet via UTP, check the UTP cable for continuity.  If you're connected via coaxial cable (BNC) check the continuity of the cable and that it is properly terminated (using 50 ohms BNC terminator).

If you're using an Ethernet Transceiver, check also if you're Transceiver is working properly (if possible try using another one).

If you're sure that all these are working fine, restart your PowerMac and the system will automatically check for a good ethernet connection and use it. If it can not find a reliable ethernet connection it will automatically switch to LocalTalk (using Printer port).

It may also give you more confidence if you reinstall the network software or even the whole system.

good luck!

I just realized that the problem goes beyond the LAN.  It also loses its IP connection.  I cannot recieve e-mail or surf the net until I reset the connections.  Then I reboot and all the settings are gone or reset.
