SoftICE error: Network cannot be used - no packet buffers are available.

0 Likes

Problem:

Whenever I type any net command, I get the following error message:  "Network cannot be used - no packet buffers are available."  What can I do about it?

Resolution:

This error means that when SoftICE started up, it was unable to allocate 64k of contiguous memory for the network buffers.

The only workaround is to decrease the amount of symbol memory allocated for SoftICE in the Symbol Loader, 'SoftICE Initialization settings'.
