Networking / Various Warp Connect v3 networking problems
« on: July 12, 2013, 07:52:07 pm »
Hello all,

I am in the process of building an OS/2 Warp Connect v3 box (blue spine), and on bootup, I get the following output:

Code: [Select]
IBM OS/2 LANMSGDD [04/26/95] 2.01 is loaded and operational.
IBM OS/2 LAN Protocol Manager
NET3406: An error occurred while opening network device driver NET1 = NETBEUI$
NET3406: An error occurred while opening network device driver NET2 = tcpbeui$
SYS1719: The file C:\IBMLAN\NETPROG\NETWKSTA.200 specified in the IFS statement on line 93 of the CONFIG.SYS file does not contain a valid device driver or file system driver.  Line 93 is ignored.
Press Enter to continue...

After I press Enter, I get many lines like this:

Code: [Select]
Vendor=10EC,1799 Dev.=8139,5000 Bus/Dev/Func-No=  0/10/0 EtherID=@0030BD721E1C

And after many of those lines, this:

Code: [Select]
More than one Realtek Fast Ethernet PCI adapter has been detected!
Warning: Driver can not determine which one to use.
Solution: Please specify and check adapter ID in PROTOCOL.INI file.

DriverName = RTSND$
EtherID = @0123456789AB

DriverName = RTSND2$
EtherID = @02468ACE0246

or use MPTS to edit the EtherID field for both drivers.

Enter number of adapter to select (1-4) or press [Esc] to cancel:                 

At this point, I choose 1, and get the following result:

Code: [Select]
Selected adapter @0030BD721E1C (1).
Network Line Speed is 100 Mbps / Full-Duplex Mode.
Link configuration: Auto Negotiation enabled.
Flow Control: Transmit:Disabled, Receive:Disabled.

Then PM comes up, and immediately shows a message box with the following message:

Code: [Select]
SYS2102: The network is not started.

When I choose OK, WPS loads and then repeats the same message, followed by this message:

Code: [Select]
LNM0038: Either Network Messaging or the Netpopup service is already running. Network Messaging cannot be run if either of these are already running.

I see many PROTOCOL.INI files when I search drive C, but am not sure which one to edit, or what exactly to change, as networking is my weakest subject when it comes to OS/2 systems.

Any pointers or advice? OS/2 is running on real hardware in this case, and the NIC is a Belkin F5D5000 (which is listed as a supported card in the rtl8139 driver package I got from Hobbes). I have not applied any FixPacks to the system yet, although I do plan on asking for advice about that in the appropriate sub-forum here later.

Thanks much in advance!
