Symptoms

When the SPX protocol is used on an adapter driver that is NDIS 4.0 compliant, a STOP 0xA may occur in the NDIS media access control driver.

Cause

Nwlnkspx.sys allocates a memory block for the NDIS packet. However, the flag field of the packet is garbled because it is not initialized; therefore, the NDIS media access control driver is unable to decide if OobData is valid or not.
