Default Explain network errors in event log?

- WinXP, SP3. NIC: Realtek RTL8139 Family PCI Fast Ethernet.
- Wired to D-Link DI-524, 'AirPlus G' 802.11g 2.4Ghz wireless router
(wireless not used)
- LAN addresses are assigned by the router. (192.168.0.x)
- At the times in question, only this PC is active on the LAN.

Event viewer (system events) shows:

2-3 times per day, one of these records:

" The netcard driver failed the query for OID_GEN_LINK_SPEED. "

or

" Your computer was not able to renew its address from the network
(from the DHCP Server) for the Network Card ...

.... Immediately followed by the record:

" The system detected that network adapter \DEVICE\TCPIP_{..}
was connected to the network, and has initiated normal
operation over thenetwork adapter.


Question: Are these something that needs fixing, or just one of those
"Yeah, it does that" things? I'm not seeing any overt problems
associated with these events.

Thanks.

To me it sounds like your connection at the higher 100 Mb/s speed is
marginal either due to cable quality or perhaps a long cable run. To
test this theory, manually set your NIC to run at the slower 10 Mb/s
speed and see if your errors go away. To do this, bring up the device
manager:
Start - Run - "devmgmt.msc"
then double-click on your network adapter card, click the "Advanced"
tab, and look for a "Link Speed and Duplex" (or similar) and click on
it. The setting is usually set to "Auto". Try changing this setting
to 10 Mb/s FULL and see if your problems disappear.

HTH,
John
