am connected to the Internet but have problems sending
out information. I am able to receive information
since my start page loads easily. The byte chart shows
an increase in the 'In' bytes but the sent bytes remain
the same (approximately 525).
You may face this kind of problem when the "transmit
buffer" setting is very low. Please follow the
steps given below to resolve your problem:
Go to Start - Settings - Control Panel.
Double click on the Modem icon.
In the dialog box select your modem and click
on Properties button.
In the dialog box select the Connection tab.
Click on Port Settings.
In the dialog box move the Transmit buffer slider
towards High option. Click OK.
You may also face this kind of problem due to one
of following reasons.
1. The next most frequent issue is incorrect configuration
of the Windows software needed to connect to the Internet.
Certain components need to be checked in this regard.
First, check the Network configuration in the Control
Panel. Go to My Computer - Control Panel - Network.
You should see Dial-up Adapter and TCP/IP installed
here. In general we recommend removing any reference
to NetBEUI or IPX/SPX unless they are needed for some
other network connection you use (like a connection
to your office).
2. The properties of TCP/IP should be set with the
IP Address option set to 'Obtain IP address automatically'
and the DNS configuration set to 'Disable DNS'. After
making changes to the Network properties in Control
Panel you will have to restart your computer for the
changes to take effect.
3. The other configuration settings you should check
are the settings for your connection in the Dial-up
networking folder. Go to My Computer - Dial-up Networking.
In that folder you will find an icon for your connection
to the Internet. Right click on this icon and select
Properties on the menu that appears.
On this screen you want to ensure the phone number
is set properly to dial our modem bank.
Click on the tab or the button (depending on your
version of Microsoft Dial-up Networking) labeled Server
Types. Here select 'Enable Software Compression' and
Finally click on the button labeled 'TCP/IP Settings'
and select 'Server assigned IP address' and 'Server
assigned name server addresses'.
I am integrating two networks, token ring to Ethernet,
and then back to token ring. Data flow is MADGE switch
(Token Ring) - OMNI switch (Ethernet) - gigabyte fibre
line - OMNI switch (Ethernet) - Deskstream switch
(Token Ring). All workstations have token ring Adapter
cards installed with default maximum frame sizes set
to 4096. If I try to initialize a NetBEUI based application
over the above network configuration, the application
dies. If I manually lower the default maximum frame
size to 1500k, the applications work flawlessly. It
seems the frame sizes in Windows 95 do not negotiate
with downward frame sizes. The switches are bridging
the data, and I have no problems with Windows NT bases
workstations. Kindly suggest. Is there any Windows
95 patch to resolve this problem?
Different Network Interface Cards (NICs) support different
maximum packet sizes, depending upon the media (Ethernet,
Token Ring). Some of the applications do not know
what the media is. The "default" sizes can
cause problems for the same.
Either the Winsock Network API, the IPX/SPX stack,
or the network adapter driver must break the application
message buffers into a suitable packet size for the
given media. Maximum packet sizes are also dependent
upon the NICs. This is a Vendor Protocol Stack issue,
not an issue within application.

I use BSES broadband services and presently our
locality has a common IP Address. One of their engineers
informed us that they would be giving each user an
individual IP Address. This way they will have access
to my computer and my privacy will be violated. Are
they at liberty to do this? Kindly advice if this
is the right thing or wrong, also how can one protect
the privacy of their computer?
The purpose of implementing LAN is to help the users
to share their resources. You will be given a separate
IP Address so that your system can be included in
This doesn't mean that your privacy is violated. You
can still protect your private messages by enabling
the security options.
You can enable password protection to your system,
so that when a person tries to access resources of
your system, he will be prompted with a window asking
for password. You set this password. You can also
protect a particular folder or file. Only if you permit
sharing, the particular drive or folder will be seen
You can also hide files and folders from others viewing
