TCP/IP needs drivers?

At work we have a proxy server (it a peer to peer network running Win 98) and every time we exit the internet. The Computer used as our server reboots and starts a scandisk.
I was looking under accessories at system info, under conponents and problem devices, it show that
TCP/IP
NetTrans
"device has a problem  code=11 (0xB)"
Device Failure  
Try changing the driver for this device.
If that doesn't work see hardware document

Under all this is a list of the registery key, resources and drivers.
The list of drivers are:
NetTrans\0002
vnbt.386
vdhcp.386
vtcp.386
vip.386
vtdi.386

I didn't know TCP/IP needed drivers. What do I do to fix the problem?

You do not need 2 versions of the TCP/IP even though these are bound to different things they are still the same protocol and are causing conflict. you will need to remove both and just reinstall the TCP/IP DIAL UP ADAPTOR. when you remove the TCP/IP INTEL ETHERNET ADAPTOR IF YOU ARE ON A NETWORK DO NOT REMOVE ANY OTHER COMPONENTS CONCERNING THE EATHERNET CARD OTHER THAN THE TCP/IP .eVEN THOUGH THIS SETUP MAY HAVE BEEN ON THE SYSTEM FOR SEVERAL MONTHS AND FUNCTIONING FINE DOEN'T MEAN THAT THIS IS NOT THE ISSUE NOW CORRUPTION OR CONFLICT DOES NOT ALWAYS HAPPEN RIGHT AWAY.

TCP/IP is a network protocol and does not need a driver. If you are runnging WIN 98 as your os go into the network control panel and see what is installed as network components nettrans sounds like a network controler.If this is so it sounds like this may be your problem. As I stated earlier check the network control panel to see whatconponents are installed it sound like TCP/IP is bound to nettrans if this is so it would show in the network contol panel as TCP/IP NETTRANS ADAPTOR OR SOMETHING TO THAT EFFECT .If that is whats listed highlight it and remove it and reinstall. if you need further instructions on how to reinstall please add a comment.

There are 2 TCP/IP listed
One for the Dial-up adaptor
and one is the Intel 21041 ethernet controller.

This problem just started and we have had this set up for several months with no problems.
