You may want to remove and reinstall TCP/IP to help resolve the following issues:
- Bindings that are improperly configured on a server.
- Dial-up clients that are unable to connect to a RAS server.
- Network adapter drivers that do not properly bind to the protocol.
To remove TCP/IP from your Windows 2000-based computer:
- Click to clear the TCP/IP check box from all dial-up connections and all LAN connections in the Network and Dial-up Connections tool.
- Install another protocol (NWlink or NetBEUI) to maintain a placeholder for each connection.
- Restart your computer.
- Reinstall TCP/IP, and then restart your computer.
