DLC Protocol Stops Transmitting Packets

DLC may stop transmitting packets while other protocols continue to work properly.
If an error condition is detected that causes a reset of the network adapter card, NDIS does not send a "reset end" indication to the protocol. Without this reset end indication, DLC continues as if an adapter reset is still in progress. The DLC protocol will not send packets until it receives a reset end indication.
To resolve this problem, obtain the latest service pack for Windows NT 4.0 or the individual software update. For information on obtaining the latest service pack, please go to:

Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in Windows NT 4.0. This problem was first corrected in Windows NT version 4.0 Service Pack 5.
