How do I change the Binding Order in Windows 2000?
To change the Binding Order in Windows 2000:
Notice how NWLink (IPX/SPX compatible protocol) places itself on top of the binding order! This something you don’t want to keep if you’re on a strictly Windows 2000 network with some occasional NetWare access.
Note that when you do so, the File and Print Sharing (and the Client for Microsoft Networks) services will have a gray check-box on the NIC’s properties box.
This is to indicate that the specific service has some un-bound protocols. If all protocols are bound to the service, the gray check-box disappears.
