I recently had this problem with a Win95 machine also. However, mine
manifested itself as a general network slowdown for that machine. Try coping
data from your 1st Win95 machine to the 2nd one. If the transfer is really
slow, you probably have the same problem I did. After spending about 6 hours
trying to restore it's drivers, I finally just gave up and re-installed that
Win95 machine. That did fix the problem, so I suspect that either the NIC's
driver was corrupt, or the registry was hosed.
