    Order of Network Protocol Setups

    I'm running Win98 4.1 on a Peer to Peer Ethernet LAN with five Win 98 machines and am having trouble getting Client for Microsoft Networks set-up on one of them. We've been running IPX/SPX but are switching over to TCP/IP and all machines but one (a Pentium I laptop) have made the jump alright. The recalcitrant keeps dropping the Client for Microsoft Networks Service regardless of whether I install it on top of a TCP/IP protocol, or bind the protocol to it after installing the client. (This on a 3Com Megahertz 10-100 LAN + 56K Modem Ethernet card). All machines are picking up an assigned IP address from the DHCP on a LinkSys BEFSR81 Etherfast Cable/DSL Router. File and Print Sharing comes up alright.
    Any ideas? Am I missing something basic?
    I've cross-posted this in Win98.
    TIA, Mark

    I've seen this problem before with another 3com PCMCIA card. Quickest thing to do is pull out the card and reinstall it. But before you reinstall the card make sure no other unwanted adapters or protocols are hanging around...delete them, including the client. When you got the card installed reinstall the client. Next step is to install TCP/IP and then NetBEUI. Card should be bound to both of the aforementioned protocols.
