Sample PROTOCOL.INI Files and Parameters
----------------------------------------
[ETHPCI_NIF]

  DriverName = ETHPCI$
; Slot = 1	      ;; {1-16}
; SIA_Mode = AUTODETECT
; {SIA_Mode = TP, BNC, TP_FULL_DUPLEX, AUTODETECT}
; DATA_RATE = MB10   ;; {MB10, MB100}

There are several parameters included in the ETHPCI_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 SIA_MODE, make sure
that it matches the hardware setting.  Otherwise, the adapter may fail.

If you don't specify these settings, Accton's NDIS/2 driver
will automatically detect them.


SLOT	    Specifies which network adapter is used by the driver.  If you
	    have only one Accton's PCI LAN card in your machine, this parameter
	    is unnecessary!  For two or more Accton's PCI LAN cards, this
	    parameter is required and cannot be omitted from PROTOCOL.INI.
	    For the first EN1203 or EN1207(-TX) adapter, Slot=1, and
	    the second one, Slot=2, third, Slot=3,..., etc.

SIA_MODE    Specifies the medium type used by the adapter.
	    Acceptable values for this parameter are AUTODETECT, TP, BNC
	    and TP_FULL_DUPLEX. If you didn't specify this settings it
	    would be AUTODETECT for both EN1203 and EN1207(-TX).

DATA_RATE   Specifies the line speed for EN1207(-TX), default is MB100.

	    MB100: 100Mbps, MB10: 10Mbps

	    Note! Do not use this setting for EN1203 adapter.

TX_THRESHOLD
	    Specifies the FIFO threshold level during packet transmittion.
	    Acceptable values for this parameter are

			  Level (bytes)        Support	  Suppot
	    Keywords	EN1203, EN1207(-TX)    EN1203	  EN1207(-TX)
	    ========	==================     =======	  ===========
	      LW128	  72	128		 Yes	      Yes
	      LW256	  96	256		 Yes	      Yes
	      LW512	 128	512		 Yes	      Yes
	     LW1024	 160   1024		 Yes	      Yes
