When you use the Event Viewer to view the System log, it includes the following message:

IbmTok01 : The adapter is configured such that the receive space is smaller than the maximum packet size. Some packets may be lost.


This message does not reflect an error in Windows NT. The event log reports to the user/administrator that the IBM Token Ring network adapter is not correctly configured to receive the maximum possible packet size that the token ring network supports.

For example, on a 16-megabit ring, the maximum packet size is more than 17,000 bytes. The error appears if the adapter is configured for only 16K shared RAM.


To eliminate this error, reconfigure the adapter to use a larger shared RAM address.
