I have a problem with a new install of Me. I need to add Netbeui to the protocols but... When I go to add protocols it isn't listed. As a matter of fact, only the ATM protocols are listed. No TCP/IP, IPX, none. Also on this same machine, When it is started Windows comes up without logging anyone on. I can log off and it automatically logs in the only username on the machine but won't do it at startup.
I tried the MS solution and made sure the net*.inf files weren't corrupt but that's about all I can find about it.
Lord knows I overlook things simple like that too but... Not this time. ALL items in the Add/Remove Windows setup are installed. I needed to mak Mr. Gates feel like someone was using all this useless stuff. And... just for the record... It wasn't all installed when the problem started.
Using Client for Microsoft Networks as client and login. Have tried removing all networking, setting it up for login with Windows Login, etc...
I'm hoping that someone can help me save the rest of my hair.
It's starting to sound like a bad install to me, but that is kind of an oxymoron with WinME. (sorry, couldn't resist, I pulled my hair out last night networking an ME box)
As much as I hate to suggest a reinstall, have you tried that yet?
I'm thinking it's just one of those things that make you go hmmm and you might just need to start from scratch.

the recipient who doesn't get it.
The only protocol currently installed is TCP/IP. I should point out that this was not listed in the protocols to add either and was only installed when I removed dial up networking and re-installed it. It works fine.
At this point I am leaning towards re-installing Me. Hoping it doesn't come to that since I will have to replace the other things on the drive but...
OK im to lazy to verify and check this. But is Win Me smart enough to only let you install certain protocols on a dialup adapter? If so do you only have dialup installed? If yes add some kind of adapter its irrelevant 3com what ever jsut to get one installed then see if it enables the options. X
No really That paper thingy you took out of the box with all the words on it was not packing material its called a "MANUAL"
