A Dell Precision 50 laptop was running very slow to startup/shutdown
(10mins each way). Now not connecting to NW6.5 network at all. Several
NWclient versions re-installed/uninstalled and failed but sometimes
partially successfull! (see below). Fed up so I reformatted HDD, load M$
XP SP2 (turned off firewall) and re-installed all Dell drivers. When
logging on without NW client - runs fine, but as soon as NClient is
installed, reboots, enter user details, browse for tree under eDirectory
tab and finds tree after one minute, BUT when going to browse on Context
or Server tabs the client times out and "Error - Couldn't Find any
contexts for the tree" appears. Now 4.91 SP3 installed and still not able
to get proper login. I tried putting in the IP address on the server field
and it sort of worked but getting alot of LOGIN-LGWNT32.dll errors too and
mappings drop out.
