Copyright (c) 1997 Standard Microsystems Corporation. All rights reserved. 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 \NDIS README.TXT This readme file 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. ---------------------------------- This commercial computer software and documentation is provided with RESTRICTED RIGHTS.
