Start the Netware Client Installation. 2. Start the dialog for choosing the driver for your network adapter. 3. Select "OTHER DRIVERS". 4. Enter the path where the files yukodi.com and yukodi.ins are located. 5. Select "Marvell Yukon Ethernet Controller". 6. In the following setup dialog choose your "Frame Type" and the other parameters. 7. After savig the setup with <F10>, the driver gets installed. 8. Finish the installation of the Netware Client Installation. 9. You can modify the driver parameters later as described in the next section. *** 4 Operation on dual port controllers ===================================== The driver will run on that port that first came up with a link when the driver is loaded. It does not switch if the current port loses its link and the other comes up. If none of the ports has a link at the time the driver is loaded, it will setup port A in case a cable is plugged in after loading the driver. *** 5 Driver Parameters ==================== After the installation of the driver, there will be an entry in the net.cfg in your nwclient installation directory that identifies your adapter: LINK DRIVER YUKODI It is followed by one or more parameters. Beside the standard parameters from Novell client the driver supports the following parameters. Frame type (mandatory) FRAME <Frame-Type> This parameter specifies the Ethernet frame types for your network. Possible values are: ETHERNET_II ETHERNET_802.3 ETHERNET_802.2 ETHERNET_SNAP Bus and device number (optional) BUSNUM <busnum> DEVNUM <devnum> With these parameters you can specify the network adapter the driver should bind on. This is useful, when there is more than one adapter in the system. The bus and device numbers are assigned by the BIOS at boot time. When the driver is called with the argument '-l' (see below) it shows bus and device numbers for the supported adapters in the system. Connection type CONTYPE <contype> This parameter can be used to force link speed and duplex mode. The value 1000 limits the speed capabilities in auto-negotiation to 1000 MBps. Using other values than AUTO or 1000 turns off auto-negotiation and is not recommended. Possible values are: AUTO 1000 100FD 100HD 10FD 10HD Check Link mode CHECK_LINK When this parameter has been specified the driver uses the first supported adapter in the system with a valid link. This parameter conflicts with BUSNUM and DEVNUM and will be ignored when BUSNUM and DEVNUM are used. When using CHECK_LINK you can load the driver only once. Calling the driver with the argument '-l' (see below) will show all supported adapters and their link status. Number of receive and transmit buffers RECEIVE BUFFERS [1..3] TRANSMIT BUFFERS [1..3] These parameters specify how many transmit and receive buffers the driver shall use. Using more buffers might improve the performance but the driver will consume more memory. The sum of receive and transmit buffers cannot be greater than 4. Designated port (optional) HWPORT = A Possible values: A, B, L(default) On controllers with two ports, the driver will use the port that is selected (Port A or B) or it will use the port that has a link. On controllers with only one port, this parameter will be ignored and defaults to 'A'. If the parameter CHECKLINK is selected at the same time, the parameter PORT is automatically reset to 'L'. *** 6 Command line arguments ========================= yukodi.com can be started with the following arguments: YUKODI - Installs the LAN driver YUKODI S - Shows status of all resident LAN drivers in memory YUKODI U - Unloads resident LAN driver from memory YUKODI ? - Displays help screen YUKODI L - Lists supported devices with bus and device number and link status *** 7 Sample Installation/Configuration ==================================== Sample startnet.bat (in the nwclient installation directory): SET NWLANGUAGE=ENGLISH C:\NWCLIENT\LSL.COM C:\NWCLIENT\yukodi.com C:\NWCLIENT\IPXODI.COM C:\NWCLIENT\VLM.EXE Sample net.cfg (in the nwclient installation directory): Link Driver YUKODI FRAME ETHERNET_802.2 BUSNUM 2 DEVNUM 1 *** End of Readme file ***Download Driver Pack
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.
