** ** ** VIA Rhine Family Fast Ethernet Adapter ** ** NDIS2 Driver for Lan Server DOS Workstations ** ** v4.29 Feb , 2004 ** ** Introduction: ============= The Ethernet NDIS2 Driver for Lan Requester DOS workstations confirms to the Network Driver Interface Specification(NDIS2). This document shows you how to setup the driver and how to use the enhanced functions by setting the custom keywords in configuration file. Contents of the Subdirectory: ============================= FETND.DOS The NDIS2 driver for Lan Requester DOS workstations. OEMSETUP.INF The installation information file. LSDOS.TXT This file. Installation: ============= Before starting with the installation process, make sure that the adapter is properly installed and configured. You can use the diagnostic program (DIAG.EXE) to make sure your connection with the network is correct. Installing driver procedure on DOS LAN Requester : ------------------------------------------------- 1) Install DOS Lan Requester to HardDisk with "NO Network Adapter Selected" option. 2) Copy FETND.DOS from your Driver diskette to DOS LAN Services subdirectory, like C:\NET . 3) Under DOS LAN Requester subdirectory C:\NET, run INSTALL 4) Move highlight to "The listed options are correct" item , then press ENTER. 5) Move highlight to "Network Card", then press ENTER. 6) Select "Change driver for network card." item, then press ENTER. 7) Select "Network card not shown in list below..", then press ENTER. 8) Insert the PCI Fast Ethernet driver diskette in floppy A,and specify the pathname A:\LANSVR40.DOS,then press ENTER. 9) PCI Ethernet NDIS2 driver is now installed on your computer, reboot your computer. Configuration Files: ==================== Sample of configuration file: ----------------------------- (Suppose the Lan Requester package is installed at C:\NET directory) File Name: C:\CONFIG.SYS ---------- DEVICE=C:\NET\PROTMAN.DOS /I:C:\NET DEVICE=C:\NET\DLSHELP.SYS DEVICE=C:\NET\FETND.DOS File Name: C:\AUTOEXEC.BAT ---------- SHARE C:\NET\NET START C:\NET\NET START PEER C:\NET\NET SHARE ZZZ=C:\ File Name: C:\NET\PROTOCOL.INI ---------- ... # The followings are Custom Keywords. Put the keywords to enable the # special functions. [MS$FETND] DriverName=FETND$ [IBM$NETBEUI] DriverName=netbeui$ SESSIONS=20 NCBS=20 BINDINGS=MS$FETND LANABASE=0 ... Custom Keywords: ---------------- FULLDUPLEX This keyword is used to enable full duplex mode. (suggest use CONNECTIONTYPE instead of this keyword) SPEED This keyword is used to force the adapter at 10Mbps or 100Mbps speed. (suggest use CONNECTIONTYPE instead of this keyword) AUTO This keyword is used to force the chip at Auto-Negotiation mode. (suggest use CONNECTIONTYPE instead of this keyword) DEVICENO This keyword is used to force device number for specified NIC card BUSNO This keyword is used to force bus number for specified NIC card CONNECTIONTYPE This keyword is used to specify duplex and speed mode. The strings are : AUTOSENSE _10BaseT _10BaseTFD _100BaseTX _100BaseTXFD FLOWCTRL This keyword is used to specify flow contro ability. The strings are : HARDWARE_DEFAULT (Auto Mode) ENABLE DISABLE Driver doesn't care the result of auto-negotiate if the value of this keyword, FLOWCTRL , is ENALBE or DISABLE. It just enables or disable flow control ability according your setting. NETWORKADDRESS This keyword is used to override the network address of the network adapter. Its type is : "000123456789" Note: If you want to specify NIC card, the DEVICENO is necessary, but BUSNO is optional When the NIC cards in the system have the same device number, you can use BUSNO to specify. If there are two or more NIC cards in the system and you don't specify anyone, driver will display the menu for selection. You can get the information about bus number and device number form this menu.Download Driver Pack
After your driver has been downloaded, follow these simple steps to install it.
