✔ Best Answer
Browse the volume SYS:\ETC and search the files "Netinfo.cfg" and "Netinfo.chk".
Both files are plain text files. The "Netinfo.cfg" holds the configuration of the installed network cards. Print the file to your printer, so that you can use this for a new correct network configuration.

Then, delete or rename both files.
At the server console, start inetcfg and make a new network configuration, including IPX (if needed) and TCP/IP.

When finished, do a "Reinitialize System" from within inetcfg or type reinitialize system at the server console.

This should bring up the new network interfaces, but also the old ones.
Therefore, you must restart the server by typing "reset server" without quotes, at the server console.

Should work.
