1.0 Introduction
----------------

    Packet drivers are general drivers used by many operating systems,
    especially TCP/IP software packages.  If the network system that is
    installed specifically mentions support for packet drivers, then
    it is likely that it will be able to install the provided packet
    driver without problems.

    The DE-220 Family Ethernet Adapter Installation diskette contains
    Packet drivers and installation notes for some of the most
    popular operating systems which  support Packet drivers.

    The most important thing to remember when installing packet drivers
    is the software interrupt vector.  The default interrupt vector for
    packet drivers is 0x62 hexadecimal.  Most network operating
    system supporting packet drivers will try to automatically search for
    packet drivers already loaded in the computer's memory.  However,
    some packages will require a provided interrupt vector for the packet
    driver.  Furthermore, some packages can only work with certain
    interrupt vectors. which require a software interrupt vector parameter
    when loading.
    Please see section 2.2, "Explanation Of The Required Setup Parameters
    and Options", for information on packet driver parameters.

    Since the DE-220 Family Ethernet Adapter is software configurable,
    the packet driver will automatically detect the hardware parameters.

    If the packet driver can properly read the adapter's MAC address
    during loading, then the hardware is normally working properly.

3.0 Explanation Of The Required Setup Commands and Parameters
-------------------------------------------------------------

    3.1.Two methods available to install Packet driver
    --------------------------------------------------

        Method 1:
        ---------
        In your CONFIG.SYS file, include the DEVICE command.
        Format:
        DEVICE = DE22XPD.SYS [/option] <packet_int_no>

        Method 2:
        ---------
        Install Packet driver by typing DE22XPD at the DOS command
        prompt.

        Format:
        DE22XPD [/option] <packet_int_no>

    3.2 Explanation Of The Required Setup Parameters and Options
    ------------------------------------------------------------

    Packet Driver
    Parameters and Options    Description

    <packet_int_no>           is the software interrupt vector number
                              used by the packet driver program. This
                              can be from 96 to 128.

    [/option]                 includes the following:

       /?                     Show available parameters
       /d                     Delay Initial - The driver program will not
                              initialize the network interface card until
                              the packet driver program is accessed by its
                              upper layer program.
       /w                     The -w parameter is for use only in the
                              Windows environment.
       /u                     Unload the packet driver.
       /n                     NetWare conversion. Convert 802.3 packets
                              to 8137 packets
       /auto                  Automatically detect connected media.
                              This is the default setting for media type.
       /utp                   Force media type to UTP.
       /bnc                   Force media type to BNC.
       /aui                   Force media type to AUI.
                              If the selected media type does not exist on
                              the adapter, the driver will automatically
                              detect the connected media.
       /sa                    Search all DE-220 Family Ethernet adapters.
                              If there is more than one Ethernet card in
                              the system, the driver will ask you to
                              select which card to work with. The default
                              setting is to work with the first detected
                              adapter.
       /jition                Enable JITI function.
       /jitioff               Disable JITI function.
                              If your ethernet adapter can't work.
                              Please try to disable JITI function.
       /earlytx               Enable early transmit option.
                              The default setting is disabled.

  • 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.
