      A) Install drivers for LANtastic 5.0

      B) Install drivers for LANtastic 6.0



A) Install drivers for LANtastic 5.0
   ========================================

   Using NDIS driver for LANtastic 5.0
   -----------------------------------

   "ETHNE.DOS" is the NDIS driver for this NE-Series adapter.
   User can use "ETHNE.DOS" driver to replace AEXNDIS.DOS which
   is the NDIS driver offered by ARTISOFT.

   Example  -----  CONFIG.SYS

	DEVICE=C:\LANTASTI\PROTMAN.DOS /I:C:\LANTASTI
	DEVICE=C:\LANTASTI\ETHNE.DOS


   Example  -----  AUTOEXEC.BAT / STARTNET.BAT

	C:\LANTASTI\AI-NDIS BIND_TO=ETHNE_NIF
	C:\LANTASTI\AILANBIO
	C:\LANTASTI\REDIR MachineName


   Example  -----  PROTOCOL.INI

	[PROTMAN]
	   DRIVERNAME = PROTMAN$
	   DYNAMIC = YES

	[ETHNE_NIF]
	   DRIVERNAME = ETHNE$

   Comments:
     If you are using PROTMAN.DOS V1.x, you must use the NO_BIND option
     on the AI-NDIS command line in the STARTNET.BAT, and you must run
     NETBIND.EXE V1.x before AILANBIO.EXE.



B) Install drivers for LANtastic 6.0
   =================================

   Using NDIS driver for LANtastic 6.0
   -----------------------------------

   To install NDIS driver "ETHNE.DOS", user can use LANtastic
   6.0 install program, and select "NDIS support for network adapters"
   then insert the driver diskette, and type path "A:\LANTASTI".
   Install program will search "ETHNE.DOS" and "PROTOCOL.INI" and copy
   these two files to target directory.

   IF user already install LANtastic 6.0 and want to install this
   adapter, just replace AEXNDIS.DOS with the NDIS driver
   "ETHNE.DOS" at CONFIG.SYS

   "ETHNE.DOS" is NDIS driver
   "AEXNDIS.DOS" is NDIS driver which supported by ARTISOFT


   Example  -----  CONFIG.SYS

	DEVICE=C:\LANTASTI\PROTMAN.DOS /I:C:\LANTASTI
	DEVICE=C:\LANTASTI\ETHNE.DOS


   Example  -----  AUTOEXEC.BAT / STARTNET.BAT

    @echo ===== Begin LANtastic configuration =====
    SET LAN_CFG=C:\LANTASTI
    PATH C:\LANTASTI;%PATH%
    SET LAN_DIR=C:\LANTASTI.NET

    rem Please obtain the NETBEUI.EXE program from Microsoft
    NETBEUI
    AI-NDIS BIND_TO=AEXNDIS_NIF
    AILANBIO @STARTNET.CFG
    REDIR THOMAS @STARTNET.CFG

    SERVER C:\LANTASTI.NET @STARTNET.CFG
    NET LOGIN \\THOMAS
    @echo ===== End LANtastic configuration =====


   Example  -----  Protocol.ini

    [PROTMAN]
    Priority=NETBEUI
      DriverName = PROTMAN$
      Dynamic = Yes

    [NETBEUI_XIF]
      DriverName = netbeui$
      Sessions = 6
      NCBS = 12
      Bindings = ETHNE_NIF
      LANABASE = 1

    [ETHNE_NIF]
      DriverName = ETHNE$

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.
