Comments
 
From a newsgroup post: "Remove and reinstall TCP/IP and the NIC. If this machine is a Domain controller, follow ME299451 for information on how to remove and reinstall TCP/IP".
This seems to be a common problem. On a Windows 2000 machine with lots of resources, one is suddenly no more able to connect with a modem.  The Microsoft ME117304 gives an explanation for the error but that is not the case here. Installing SP1 does not help.
The problem is that ndiswan.sys is either missing or corrupt. Copy a fresh ndiswan.sys into winn\system32\drivers and this should sought the problem out. Apparently, SP1 removes this file without replacing it, so copy back the file from the SP uninstall folder.
