I had this problem, that if I didn't use cnet.device and kept my ethernet card
in the PCMCIA port, my system lost performance. It could mostly be seen in
programs using MUI, and if I used PPC Warp da tatypes, my system almost got to a
hold. I found out, that if I open up cnet.device without using it, the problem
disappeared.

This little program simple open cnet.device and wait for a break signal.

If you always open cnet.device (with Miami, Genesis or whatever) when you boot,
you have no need for this program.

This program can coexist with other programs opening cnet.device (like Miami,
Genesis or whatever).

You can use a tool like Scout to check how many opens of cnet.device, you have.

If someone knows of another way to solve the problem without the need for this
program, please let me know.

INSTALLATION
- Put opencnet in C:
- Put the next line in S:user-startup
run >nil: C:opencnet

- You can stop the program by first spot the process number with the command
"status" in a shell, and then break it with "break <PROCESS>" (replace <PROCESS>
with the process number).
