We have recently been installing IBM TC 8171 and 8215 pc's into our
network after years of Dell pc's. The IBM's have a Broadcom NetXtreme
Gigabit Ethernet embedded nic. We have had crazy login problems from day
one. Sometimes it sees one of the two Netware servers, sometimes we get
access denied when logging in or when trying to open a mapped drive
after login. Then mysteriously it might work fine. All the Dells never
have this problem(don't ask). It leads me to believe that the Broadcom
embedded nic is the problem. Has anyone else experienced this with the
IBM's? We have tried the 4.83 client and the 4.91(w/latest spk's) and
experienced the same problems with both.
