Cannot read IP config when disconnected

By wan_fai ·
Hi,
When my computer (Win98SE) startup without network connection, it seems cannot initialize NIC and TCPIP. Error message "Cannot read IP configuration..." prompts if I type ipconfig in command line. This problem will not happen when the machine startup with network connection.

Anyone has idea about that. Thanks.

Fai

Actually, i have written a program to collect NIC Mac address. However, I found that the program could not get Mac Address of some PCs. Do you mean there is no guaranteed way to get Mac address?

Thanks for any help.
