            SiS 900/7016 PCI Fast Ethernet Adapter Installation
                     for DOS Packet Driver

1. General Information

    SiS PCI Fast Ethernet adapter's packet driver file, SIS900.EXE, is
located in the \PKTDRV directory on SiS PCI Fast Ethernet Adapter Drivers 
Disk. The SIS packet driver complies to FTP Software's Revision 1.09 
packet driver specifications.

    Before installing the packet driver, install SiS PCI Fast Ethernet 
adapter in a PCI slot in your PC.

    If you are using multiple SiS PCI Fast Ethernet adapters in the same 
PC, you will need to specify the PCI slot number of SiS PCI Fast Ethernet
adapter that you want to use with the packet driver when you load the 
packet driver.

2. Command Line Options

   The packet driver recognizes the command line options described below.
Note that when multiple SiS PCI Fast Ethernet adapters are installed in a 
PC, the -s option (for PCI) is required. Otherwise, there is no need to 
specify any other options.

   |  NOTE: For all the command line options that require a value to be   |
   |  specified, you must put a space between the command line option and |
   |  the value. For example:                                             |
   |                     SIS900  -s 3 -n 0x65                             |

-h          Displays the command line usage message.

-n int      Sets the packet driver's software interrupt to "int".
            The valid range is from 0x60 to 0x80 (as stated in the
            packet driver specifications). If not specified, the
            default is 0x60.

-t          Terminates the packet driver and frees the memory
            occupied by the driver.

-s slot     Sets the adapter slot location to "slot". Use this option
            only if installing multiple SiS PCI Fast Ethernet adapters in
            one PC.

-c type     Set media type manually. It should be a hexdecimal number
            started with 0x. If not specified, the default is 0x01

            Type   Ethernet Standard   Duplex
            ----   -----------------   ------
            0x01     Auto-detect        Auto
            0x08     10Base-T           HALF
            0x10     10Base-T           FULL
            0x20     100Base-T          HALF
            0x10     100Base-T          FULL

2.1. Command Line Option Examples

    Loads the packet driver using the configured I/O port address,
    IRQ, and media type. The driver is installed at software
    interrupt 0x60.

SIS900 -s 2 -n 0x65
    Loads the packet driver for PCI slot 2 using a software interrupt
    of 0x65 (the software interrupt is 0x60 by default). If an IRQ setting
    is specified by using "-i irq" and the IRQ value is not correct,
    the driver will not load and will print an error message.

SIS900 -t
    Terminate the packet driver at software interrupt 0x60.

SIS900 -t -n 0x61
    Terminate the packet driver at software interrupt 0x61.

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.
