Disabling Unneeded Protocols
This brings up a list of the protocols that are installed and active on your
adapter (see Figure 17-8). The protocols that are installed but are not active
are indicated by the absence of a check in the box.
Figure 17-8: The Network adapter protocol list lets you see which
protocols are running on your computer.
Disabling a Specific Protocol
Now that you have the list of installed and active protocols on your screen, you
are ready to disable a protocol. To do so, just click the checkbox to remove the
check. Then click OK and the protocol will no longer be active on the network
adapter. Take a look at Table 17-2 for help with the default Windows protocols. If
you see any other protocols that are not listed in this table, you should research
online before you disable them.
