Working with my sister and using any of the W98 or W98SE tools (sfc, etc) doesn't resolve this sudden NDISWAN.VXD alert at bootup.  What is it and do I need it?  I'll post what we've found to see if this helps you help us.

Sent request to ISP/DSL for support, but though perhaps this is a simple thing quickly resolved.  

Converted to DSL, got disconnected, lost sync ... ended up removing the network adapter and protocol and related software and reinstalling all.  

Using DSL and the PPPoE protocol with the adapter and can connect but still have problems with Outlook Express to get my Email from this new Pacbell ISP as well as when system boots this information .... this failed from bootlog.txt:  [000D8482] LoadFailed = ndis2sup.vxd

at boot the message says a program or INI setting calls for this ndiswan.vxd and cannot be found, uninstall or reinstall.  We then bypass, no idea where this came from.  Installed many things, tough to isolate.

This site refers to that vxd.  Is that the hardware you have?

This site refers to downloading the vxd you need.

Hope this helps.

Do a file check for NDISWAN.VXD and if you don't have it you can find it at: http://marketwizz.net/windows95/win95a/index.html
If you do have the file you might want to rename it and try the new version.

I would advise keeping the old file rather than overwriting.

The file should be located in your windows\system folder.

ndiswan is part of the networking which is or was installed in your system. This problem typically arrises after an installation of an ISP-ware which was not completed.  You have two choices to resolve this issue:

Option 1) remove the registry entry associated with this file
** First, backup system.dat and user.dat in case problems arrise.
   A) Start | Run | type regedit and hit OK
   B) Click on Edit | Find and type ndiswan.vxd then hit ok
   C) When it stops, don't look, just hit delete then F3 to continue the search.  Repeat this step until it says finished searching the registry.

Option 2)Uninstall and reinstall all network components through the Network Icon in Control Panel

Go to ControlPanel>Network
Do you have Client for Netware Networks?

It pertains to Netware Networks, if your're not using it delete it.

Open your system.ini under [386Enh] section for ndiswan.vxd and delete the line

You may also have to go to the registry key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\VxD

Delete the key named ndiswan

I appreciate all your help.  My sister ended up having to fdisk/reformat and start all over again.  She determined the source and nothing 'normal' worked; it was a conversion from ISP to new DSL and ISP and when the network was set up the card conflicted with sound.  Long story short, thanks, she's fixed and I'm paying these points to the individual who identified the key issue as she had found it to be.
