When you start Windows for Workgroups, you may receive one of the following error messages:
NOTE: These errors usually occur in protected mode; real-mode networking usually loads correctly.
The above error messages may be caused by an incorrect I/O base address, an incorrect RAM address, or an improper IRQ setting in the PROTOCOL.INI file.
These errors may be generated if the Transport= line in the [386Enh] section of the SYSTEM.INI contains protocols that are not in use. For example, if the Transport= line contains the following
but the only protocol in use is NetBeui, the errors may occur.
Correct the invalid setting.
If the Transport= line contains invalid references, remove them (that is, remove the references to nwlink.386, nwnblink.386, and IPX/SPX compatible transport).
The NDIS2 network interface card (NIC) driver may not rely on the PROTOCOL.INI settings; however, the NDIS3 NIC driver relies almost exclusively on these settings.
