NE1500T Network Card Cannot Talk to Network

Article ID: 106273

Article Last Modified on 10/7/1999



APPLIES TO

  • Microsoft Windows for Workgroups 3.11



This article was previously published under Q106273

SYMPTOMS

When you exit and then restart Microsoft Windows on a system with an older AMD NE1500T network interface card (NIC), you cannot communicate over the network.

CAUSE

This behavior occurs on AM1500T NICs that use the Lance chip. AM1500T NICs that use the PC-NET chip do not exhibit this behavior.

WORKAROUND

You need to power your system off and then on (cold boot) before restarting Windows. You should then be able to communicate over the network.
