Explanation

The frame type is the way the network adapter formats the data to be put on the network. NetWare IPX clients and servers can be configured for different frame types, but for the computers to communicate, they must be configured for the same frame type. The Auto Frame Type Detection allows Windows 2000 to determine which IPX frame type is being used on the network and to set the NWLink frame type automatically. NWLink checks frames being passed to the network adapter to which the protocol is bound. If it detects frames of the type 802.2 or no frames at all, it sets the frame type to 802.2. Otherwise, it sets the frame type to whatever is being passed on the network.

This IPX information message shows the new default frame type.

   
User Action

It is a good practice to double-check that the correct frame type was detected.
