Recently I was installing Nic cards (pcmcia) on a laptop with Win98 and on a desktop with Win95 (PCI). After configuring TCP/IP with the Network settings I tried to ping 127.0.0.1 and was replied with "transmit failed, error code 10091; these were the only two machines that had this failure, all others worked fine with the same configurations and Nics.
Can anyone enlighten me as to what is the cause and cure for this failure. I am sure it is not the Nics or the drivers. Maybe some files missing or corrupt. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
