do you use the latest firmware for GPIB-ENET/100, you can find it here:

You can also try to download the newest NI- GPIB 488.2 driver. Link:
Deinstall the old one and install the newer one without hardware, if you use a older driver.
After installing the new driver connect the hardware.

If it's problem with MAX itself, you can try to repair MAX. Go to Start->Settings->Control panel-> software -> click NI-Software change/delete. In the next window choose Measurement&Automation Explorer and click repair.

best regards.
