Packet Driver Installation:
===========================

   Sample Configuration Files:
   ---------------------------
      AUTOEXEC.BAT
        PNPPD 0x60
        or
        PNPPD              (Since the default software interrupt is 0x60 )

   Notes:
   ------
      1. Load the packet driver using the software interrupt and any
         optional switches if required.

         Usage: PNPPD [options] [packet_int_no(default=0x60)]

         Example: PNPPD -i 0x7e

         The only required  parameter is the software  interrupt.  A packet
         driver needs to have a software interrupt assigned to it for other
         programs to access it. The recommended interrupt 0x7e. If you need
         any of the  options  listed below,  place them before the software
         interrupt on the command line.

         -i -- Force driver to report itself as IEEE 802.3 instead of
               Ethernet II.

         -d -- Delayed initialization.  Used for diskless booting

         -n -- NetWare conversion.  Converts 802.3 packets into 8137 packets

         -w -- Windows hack, obsoleted by winpkt

         -p -- Promiscuous mode disable

         -u -- Uninstall

         [packet_int_no] -- packet driver INT entry (0x60 to 0x80)

      2. This is an auto sensing packet driver.  That means it will auto-
         matically scan the system until it finds the adapter I/O address
         and IRQ. The software interrupt will still need to be given in the
         command line when invoking the packet driver.(if not be given, the
         default value is 0x60)

      3. Run PNPPD.COM, the screen will appear following message:

         Found Card 0:EtherID=52:54:4C:19:01:B8,IO=300,IRQ=5 on 16-bit slot
         Driver is attached to card 0. It is configurated as:
         System: [345]86 processor, ISA bus, Two 8259s
         Packet driver software interrupt is 0x60 (96)
         Interrupt(IRQ) number 0x5 (5)
         I/O port 0x300 (768)
         My Ethernet address is 52:54:4C:19:01:B8

      4. Installing Multiple LAN Adapters:
         If there are multiple network cards on the main board. the user
         run PNPPD.COM directly, then the screen will display :

      Found Card 0: EtherID=52:54:4C:19:00:11,IO=220,IRQ=5 on 16-bit slot.
      Found Card 1: EtherID=52:54:4C:19:01:BA,IO=300,IRQ=3 on 16-bit slot.
      Please specify which card the driver attach (0-1):

         if select 0 ,then disply :

         Driver is attached to card 0. It is configurated as:
         System: [345]86 processor, ISA bus, Two 8259s
         Packet driver software interrupt is 0x60 (96)
         Interrupt(IRQ) number 0x5 (5)
         I/O port 0x220 (544)
         My Ethernet address is 52:54:4C:19:00:11

How To Update Drivers Manually

After your driver has been downloaded, follow these simple steps to install it.

  • Expand the archive file (if the download file is in zip or rar format).

  • If the expanded file has an .exe extension, double click it and follow the installation instructions.

  • Otherwise, open Device Manager by right-clicking the Start menu and selecting Device Manager.

  • Find the device and model you want to update in the device list.

  • Double-click on it to open the Properties dialog box.

  • From the Properties dialog box, select the Driver tab.

  • Click the Update Driver button, then follow the instructions.

Very important: You must reboot your system to ensure that any driver updates have taken effect.
