Error Loading Protocol 2: Error 59

By mad44 ·
When I sign on to the network through a nic in my docking station I keep getting error message (TCP/IP Error loading protocol 2:error 59) I log in to the nt4 server but not able to see whole network or connect to the internet via DSL. Without the docking station everything is fine. Any suggestions?

Error Loading Protocol 2: Error 59

Does your docking station use a different NIC than when the laptop is by itself? I am assuming that it is.

What you may need to check are the bindings on your TCP/IP of the NIC that is being used while in the docking station.

Again, I do not know you operating system. I assume that it is Win9x. If this is true, check your network components and...
a. make certain that the NIC is enabled, has the correct drivers, and is operating properly
b. The Bindings on your tcp/ip to this NIC are in the correct order.
c. Are you using NetBEUI or IPX/SPX? If you are, do you need them? On a default of Win9x, they may be included. If you do not need them, then remove them. This will help the bindings order.
NOTE: How do you access the bindings on a Win9x system....?
1. open control panel and then the network applet
2. Find TCP/IP for the NIC that you are wanting. Highlight, then click on 'properties'
3. There is a 'bindings' tab, click on it.
4. From here, select the items you want. Most likely, if it is a Microsoft network, you will want 'Client for Microsoft Networks' and maybe 'File and Printer sharing for Microsoft Networks'

You will need to reboot on any changes you make to the network settings.

Best of luck
