The solution is to install a protocol that requires the ethernet driver to
remain enabled. This does not impact the performance of the machine or the network. Follow the instructions below for your operating system.


Windows 98
1. Start -> Settings -> Control Panel
2. Double click on Network
3. Click the Add button
4. Select Protocols
5. Click the Add button
6. Select Microsoft
7. Select "IPX/SPX compatible Protocol"
8. Click OK

Windows NT
1. Start -> Settings -> Control Panel
2. Double click on Network
3. Select the Protocols Tab
4. Select the Add button
5. Select "NWLink IPX/SPX Compatible Transport" and hit OK
6. Select the Continue button on the next popup

Windows 2000
1. Start -> Settings -> Control Panel
2. Double click Network and Dialup connections
3. Double Click Local Area Connection
4. Click Properties
5. Click Install
6. Select Protocol
7. Click Add
8. Select "NWLink IPX/SPX NetBIOS Compatible Transport Protocol"
9. Click OK
10. Select Continue

Windows XP
1. Start -> Control Panel
2. Click Network and Internet Connections
3. Click Network Connections
4. Double click on Local Area Connection
5. Click Properties
6. Click Install
7. Select Protocol
8. Click Add
9. Select NWLink IPX/SPX/NetBIOS Compatible Transport Protocol
10. Click OK
11. Click Close

When the Windows Media Sensing "feature" is activated and the
network cable is disconnected, the link to the TCP/IP layers of the
disconnected adaptor is removed. Hence, some apps which try to
verify the MAC adress of this adapter fail the license check.

For a workaround, see more from MS at :
https://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q239/9/24.ASP

I will add my two cents however by noting that some apps like
WG2002 do very well in this situation while others do not
(modelsim). It looks like the mgcld daemon is used by the
well behaving apps while the modeltech daemon is used by the ill
behaved ones, perhaps because it uses an older version of FlexLM.
