SUPPORTED NETWORK CARDS		

SMC EZ Card 10 Ethernet ISA Network Cards:
 o SMC1660T
 o SMC1660BT
 o SMC1660BTA
  
		

The drivers you need are in the MSLANMAN.DOS and NDIS directories.
The NDIS drivers contained in these subdirectories are used with
3Com 3+Open, Microsoft OS/2 LAN Manager OEM distribution
Release 1.x or 2.x, and other compatible OEM versions of LAN Manager.


The drivers named SMC1660 conform to the Network Driver
Interface Specification (NDIS) defined by Microsoft/3Com.

Included in MSLANMAN.DOS and NDIS subdirectories
are the following files:

\MSLANMAN.DOS\DRIVERS\ETHERNET\SMC\

    SMC1660.DOS 	The DOS NDIS MAC driver
    PROTOCOL.INI	A sample section of a PROTOCOL.INI file

\MSLANMAN.DOS\DRIVERS\NIF\

    SMC1660.NIF 	Network Information File

\NDIS\DOS

    SMC1660.DOS 	The DOS NDIS MAC driver
    SMC1660D.NIF	Network Information File for LAN Server (DOS)
    PROTOCOL.INI	A sample section of a PROTOCOL.INI file
    OEMSETUP.INF	Network Information File for Windows for
			Workgroups v3.1

Verifying Installation
----------------------

Verify that the network card was installed properly by running
the diagnostic program using SMCINST.

Note that this program only runs under DOS and will not run under
the OS/2 environment.

Sample PROTOCOL.INI Files and Parameters
----------------------------------------

[SMC1660_NIF]

;  Default section of protocol.ini file for the
;  SMC EZ Card 10 ISA Network Card
    drivername = SMC1660$
    irq = 3
    iobase = 0x300
; End of this sample file

There are several parameters included in the SMC1660_NIF
section of the PROTOCOL.INI file. However, the only parameter
that you should specify is the drivername.

If you change other parameter settings, such as the iobase
or irq, make sure that it matches the hardware setting.
Otherwise, the card may fail.

If you don't specify these settings, SMC's NDIS driver
will automatically detect them.

irq	    Specifies the interrupt channel used by the card.
	    Acceptable values for this parameter are 2, 3, 4, 5,
	    10, 11, 12 ,and 15. However, not all of these network
            cards support every value.


iobase	    Specifies the iobase address used by the card.
	    Acceptable hexadecimal values for this parameter are
            0x200, 0x220, 0x240, 0x260, 0x280, 0x2a0, 0x2c0, 0x2e0,
            0x300, 0x320, 0x340, 0x360, 0x380, 0x3a0, 0x3c0, 0x3e0.


List of Additional Parameters in the PROTOCOL.INI file
for the NDIS Driver Configuration
------------------------------------------------------
Note that values for the following parameters are seldom
changed by the user. Most of the time the default
values are used.

Keyword 	Parameter

MaxMultiCast	1 .. 1000,  Default 10
		Maximum number of MultiCast Addresses.
		This configures the size of the MultiCast
		Address Table.

MaxRequests	6 .. 64,  Default 8
		Maximum number of outstanding General Requests.
		This configures the size of the General Request
		Queue.

MaxTransmits	6 .. 64,  Default 12
		Maximum number of outstanding TransmitChain commands.
		This configures the size of the TransmitChain Request
		Queue.

ReceiveChains	6 .. 96,  Default 12
		Maximum number of outstanding ReceiveChain commands.
		This configures the size of the ReceiveChain Request
		Queue.

ReceiveBuffers	6 .. 96,  Default 12
		Configures the number of Receive buffers in the
		Receive Buffer Pool.

TransmitBufSize 128 .. 1514,  Default 1514
		Configures the size (in bytes) of buffers in the
		Transmit Buffer Pool.
