NT 4.0 networking

By mndthegap1 ·
i am setting up a small network at home so that i can practice hands on training. I set up a computer as the pdc. and another as a workstation. both are attached to a kingston etherRX soho 10baseT hub. the pdc is not accessable to the workstation and i cant get into server manager on the pdc. I go into event viewer and i am getting the following error:
Service: service control manager
Description: Intel based adapter drive service failed to start due to following error device attached to system is not functioning
event Detail
source: e100b
E100b timed out during operation
I did a test on the Intel card and it passed the self test but failed the network test saying that cable is bad, or to change the interupt.
ive changed the cable
so my question is can it be a bad card, or is it the hub or how can i change the interupt????? Or am i totally off and can someone please help and give me some idea how to fix????

If it is an interrupt problem then look in the System applet in control panel under the devices to figure out the conflicting devices. Has the hub ever worked? Tried changeing ports?

Sound like you are not even reaching the hub. If you have already replaced the cable then change the interupt to IRQ11. I had a W/S that that would not talk to the network due to an IRQ conflict. They like to default to IRQ3 which is also the IRQ for COM2.
Try it using IRQ 5 or 11.

Bast of luck.

Did you install the network card drivers during setup? If you did, that is what is causing the problem. Most newer Intel cards require SP4 in order to work. If they are installed on a pre SP4 system they will not function correctly, even after the newest SP is applied.

Remove all networking components. Install SP4 or later, and then reinstall all networking components. Reinstall the SP again.

You didn not indicate which Service Pack you are using. I recommend uninstalling the network (ie remove all the services and the adapter from Network Properties), then reboot and install at LEAST Service Pack 4. Then reinstall the network adapter and services. Do the same on the workstation. Then make sure you have the domain/workgroup set up correctly. Hope this helps you!

Definately add the service packs but you can also check to see if the adapter card is on the Hardware compatibility list. Many times when trying to install NT server of a home-based pc the hardware is incombatible with NT Server, especially the networking pieces.
