Introduction:
=============

  This document shows you how to use the eeprom utility. This utility runs
under DOS environment.


Contents of the Subdirectory:
=============================

    EEPROM.EXE          The eeprom utility program file.
    EEPROM.CFG          The eeprom utility default configuration file.
    EEPROM.TXT          This file.

Usage:
======

    The eeprom menu consists of four functions:

    1.  F1: Create Data File
        You should use this function to create a new EEPROM data file.
        The default value of "Ethernet ID", "Subsystem ID", "Subsystem Vendor ID"
        and "PHY address" are invalid. Modify them to the valid value and
        save to a file.

    2.  F2: Open Data File
        If you want to modify an existed EEPROM data file, you could use
        this function.

    3.  F3: Write to EEPROM
        After the EEPROM data file is OK, you could use this function
        to write the data file into EEPROM.

    4.  Esc: Exit
        Exit this program.


Command line usage
==================

Usage: EEPROM [option]

option: -?                        This help.

        -h                        This help.

        -p[#] [MAC Address] filename [-i [filename1]] [-o filename2] [-al limitaddr]
                                  Program EEPROM with data in filename and output the
                                  programmed MAC address to filename2 if -o is specified.
                                  use alternative way to modify MAC address if -i is specified.
                                  if filename1 is omitted, the program will read MAC from console.
                                  If you want to avoid over-programming MAC address,
                                  using option -al to set the limit of address.

How To Update Drivers Manually

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.
