I'm trying to make a bootable disk (NT) I've my NIC is 3c905c - I have the correct drivers in the \net directory and the drivers load to and bring the interface to a pingable state. the next command in the Autoexec.bat is NETBIND and it fails every time with ERROR 33 ?

ANY SUGGESTIONS - this is an emergency

Through the 3com utils I was able to determine that the card is responding to IRQ 11 @ 1000h

in my protocol.ini i've matched these settings to no avail


HELP HELP

hkaufm,

Try putting everything in protocol.ini in lower-case and see if that works.

If not, try manually entering the drivername as "EL90X$" (but in lower-case)
under the [tcm$el90x] or header section, like:


[tcm$el90x]

drivername=el90x$


Please post back if that doesn't help...

Should've mentioned to try the second option first
before bothering with the lower-case comment...
It can be tested in upper-case format, e.g.;

DriverName=EL90X$

thanks - the lower case seems to have fixed the binding problem - now my problem is after the binding and loading of all the tcp protocols - the card just isn't accessible?
