SYMPTOMS
After you attempt to disable the WINS bindings for a network interface card(NIC) in the Control Panel Network dialog box, Event Viewer reports twoerrors:
Event ID 4307: Initialization failed because the transport refused to open initial Addresses.

Event ID 4311: Initialization failed because the driver device could not be created.
CAUSE
These errors occur when you disable all WINS related bindings and ShowBinding For is set to < All Components >. They may also occur due to anincorrect order of the bindings.
RESOLUTION
To correct this problem:

  1. In the Show Bindings For list box, choose WINS Client(TCP/IP).
  2. Select the WINS binding shown and choose Enable.
  3. Verify that the WINS bindings are above any RAS bindings in the list (lower all RAS bindings to the bottom of the list).
  4. Choose OK and then choose OK again.
If enabling the bindings does not correct the problem, remove the TCP/IPprotocol completely, and then reinstall it.
