- 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.
