RESOLUTION

Important This section, method, or task contains steps that tell you how to modify the registry. However, serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that you follow these steps carefully. For added protection, back up the registry before you modify it. Then, you can restore the registry if a problem occurs. For more information about how to back up and restore the registry, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

To resolve this problem, increase the MaxDgramBuffering value from 128 KB to 256 KB:
  1. Start Registry Editor (Regedt32.exe).
  2. Locate the following key in the registry:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\NetBT\Parameters
  3. On the Edit menu, click Add Value, and then add the following information:
    Value Name: MaxDgramBuffering
    Data Type: REG_DWORD
    Value: 0x40000
  4. Quit Registry Editor.
  5. Restart the Netlogon service (you may have to restart the computer).
NOTE: If you are using Regedit instead of Regedt32 to modify the registry, either
  • right-click Parameters, click New, and then click REG_DWORD -or-

  • click New on the Edit menu, and then click REG_DWORD
and then add the new registry key information.
