Installation Procedure The instruction to install the driver is summarized in the README.TXT file under each product's subdirectory. 2. Sample protocol.ini file and parameters [ACCNE_NIF] ; Default section of protocol.ini file for the Accton Adapter drivername = ETHPCM$ irq = 5 iobase = 0x300 ; End of this sample file Several parameters are included in the ACCNE_NIF section of the PROTOCOL.INI file. However, the only required parameter is the "drivername". The other parameters can use the default values. irq Specifies the interrupt channel used by the adapter. Acceptable values for this parameter are 2, 3, 4, 5, 10, 11, 12, and 15. iobase Specifies the iobase address used by the adapter. This parameter is given in hexadecimal values. Acceptable value for this parameter are 0x240, 0x280, 0x2C0, 0x300, 0x320, 0x340, 0x360. 3. Additional Parameters in the protocol.ini file for the Accton NDIS Driver Configuration: 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. ReceiveBuffers6 .. 96 Default 12 Configures the number of the Receive buffers in the Receive Buffer Pool. TransmitBufSize 128 .. 1514 Default 1514 Configures the size (in bytes) of buffers in the Transmit Buffer Pool. ***** Note : Values for the preceding parameters are seldom changed by the user. Most of the time, the default values are used. ***** Trademarks: Microsoft OS/2 LAN Manager is a trademark of Microsoft Corporation. 3Com, 3+, 3+Open and EtherLink II are registered trademarks of 3Com Corporation. TROUBLE SHOOTING and ERROR MESSAGES Run Accton's "1Step" installation/diagnostic program to determine if the Network Adapter is working correctly. ERROR MESSAGES: ERROR: Adapter card not found or I/O port error. These are the possible reasons for this error: (1) The Adapter card is not installed correctly. (2) The failure is caused by more than one adapters trying to use the same set of I/O ports or IRQ number. (3) The Enabler ACCOPEN.EXE is not executed or it cannot enable the PCMCIA card because of resource conflicts with other PCMCIA cards. ERROR: Incorrect Media Setting or Bad Transceiver The following are the possible causes: (1) The transceiver is bad. (2) The cable is broken. (3) The cable is not attached.Download Driver Pack
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.
