Show LAN errors
You can display a LAN connection—error count on the General tab of the connection's Status dialog box in Win2K. However, enabling this option requires some registry editing. Microsoft doesn't enable this setting by default because the company decided that the information might confuse or mislead the average user. However, if you're an advanced user, this type of data can come in handy for troubleshooting purposes.
First, navigate to the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Network\Connections\StatMon subkey. (If the StatMon subkey doesn't already exist, create it.) Next, create the value ShowLanErrors (of type REG_DWORD). The default value is 0 (don't show error counts). To enable the error display, set the value to 1.
This works with XP as well.

I don't know why they are all errors
It is the connection in use and as far as I can see it is working fine.
I have also included a clip of the changes I made to the registry...maybe the problem is there?
