        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
