PCMCIA Ethernet/Fax/Modem May 1996 Packet Driver Installation Overview Contents ÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄ Introduction Getting Started Support Options Copyrights, Trademarks, and Disclaimers Introduction ÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄ 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 the provided packet driver without problems. The most important thing to remember when installing packet drivers is the software interrupt vector. The default interrupt vector for the 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 the section at the end of this document for description on packet driver parameters. Since the LanModem are 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. Getting Started ÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄ Driver Line Parameters: ÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄ LMPD.COM <packet_int_no> <int> <i/o address> or DEVICE=LMPD.SYS <packet_int_no> <int> <i/o address> Packet Driver Parameters: ÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄ <packet_int_no> is the software interrupt vector number used by the packet driver program. Options include: 96 to 128. <int> is the hardware interrupt used by the card. this should match the PCMCIA drivers interrupt selection for the card. Options include: 3,4,5,7,9,10,11,12 or 15. <i/o address> is the hardware i/o address used by the card. This should match the PCMCIA drivers i/o address selection for the card.

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.
