  • Microsoft Windows for Workgroups 3.1

This article was previously published under Q106025


When you configure Windows for Workgroups for a Novell/Anthem NE2000 card, you can select an IRQ between 2 and 5 (inclusive)--even though the newer Novell/Anthem NE2000 cards support IRQs 2-14.


The Windows for Workgroups NETWORKS.INF file contains 2-5 as a valid IRQ range for Novell/Anthem NE2000 cards to maintain compatibility with older cards.


If you have one of the newer Novell/Anthem cards (or a clone) and you are using an IRQ in the 6-14 range, do one of the following:

  • Select "NE2000 Compatible" instead of "Novell/Anthem NE2000" when configuring Windows for Workgroups.


  • Edit the PROTOCOL.INI file and change the IRQ to the correct value.
