Hi!

After starting my laptop yesterday eCS 1.1 did´nt wanted to start. It showed an exception in the file C:\mptn\protocol\AFINETK.SYS. One week ago it was still working. I tried everything I saw in the Internet: New AFINETK.SYS from hobbes and deleting the SACK setting inside C:\mptn\etc\inetcfg.ini.

I finally remed out the AFINET line inside the Config.sys, but as the result of it, the Network is not working anymore. Could this be caused by applying more ram to the Laptop. I changed it from 512mb to 1280mb ram.

Does someone know a solution for my problem?

Laptop:
Dell Inspirion 5150 Advanced
eComStation 1.1
HPFS386 2gb Partition
1280mb RAM
Geforce 5200go

Thank you!
Toby

You could try going to the non-kee version of the network drivers - it afinet.sys not afinetk.sys - I think there's a couple of others as well.

It definitely could be due to the memory increase - when I went from 512mb to 1024mb on my laptop I found pcmcia support stopped working due to a memory conflict.

Cheers,

Paul.

I already tried that, forgot to mention (also not working). Which other could I use?

Thanks

open C:/MPTN/ETC/INETCFG.INI and change ( usually ) the last line to:

sack 0 0 0 1 Selective ACK ON/OFF
# Always keep this setting off (Selective ACK ON/OFF) !

that is a known issue with eCS v1.1 and afinetk.sys that I've also had.

Aaaaah Paul, you have enlightened me ! I have the same problem of PCMCIA not working anymore. I thought it was because Sony upgraded my bios when repairing my laptop, but this repair happened after I changed my 512mb to 2GB of RAM. Now I understand where the problem lies. I was trying every now and then to find the good driver between the various versions of PCCard software, I now know it is a loss of time with my configuration...

Is there any hope to find a solution to this problem ? I really would like to get my PCMCIA working...

I tried it, but I didn't had luck. It is in fact not the known issue with eCS v1.1, because the the error happens during boot and not while using the network.

It has to do with the memory increase. Which other network drivers could I use. Also tried using AFINET.SYS and SOCKETS.SYS instead of AFINETK.SYS and SOCKETSK.SYS
-> Did also not work!

Toby

PS:
What is actually the propose of AFINETK.SYS and SOCKETSK.SYS ? Are they TCP/IP Drivers?

Hi

If it is the result of the memory a couple of things might help. First, try the following change to your BIOS if yours has it (from the ecs bios recommendations).

Reset Configuration Data: Enabled/On/Yes.

If you have changed hardware or are experiencing hardware related problems you should set this setting to Enabled to allow the system to attempt to reset configuration data. The setting should automatically revert to Disabled during a reboot.

I conjuction you should enable full hardware detection on boot up.

Either hit alt F1 at the boot blob then pick full hardware detection from the menu or pick full hardware detction on the first page of the properties notebook of the hardware object in the setup folder. HTH

Yes there is - I got it working using the pciconf package from Veit - see http://kannegieser.net/~veit/test/index_e.htm

I just don't remember now if I needed a newer test version from Veit to get it working or if the package on his site was enough.

Cheers,

Paul.

Tried both above, but it is still not working. After updating the drivers from hobbes, it doesn't show an exception screen any more. But just before the workplace comes up, the pc gets frozen. I remed out the afinetk.sys line again and it is again working. eCS also sees the whole amount of ram. I therefore think it has something to do with the memory adressing.

Perhaps try the package that helped me get my pcmcia controller working after i upgraded from 512mb to 1024mb - ie http://kannegieser.net/~veit/test/index_e.htm

Maybe it will help?

Cheers,

Paul.

I tried both packages inside the pciconf.arj:
The memory.snp causes the system to crash during boot.
The pcibus.snp doesn´t solve the problem with AFINETK.SYS
