CardBus Fast Ethernet PC Card Packet Driver Installation Overview Contents -------- .Introduction .User's Guide .Support Options Introduction ------------ 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 card 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. User's Guide ------------ Two methods available to install Packet driver Method 1. In your CONFIG.SYS file, include the DEVICE command. Format: DEVICE = CB102PD.SYS [/option] <packet_int_no> Method 2. Install Packet driver by typing CB102PD at the DOS command prompt. Format: CB102PD.COM [/option] <packet_int_no> Support Options --------------- Parameters and Options Description ---------------------- -------------------------------------------- <packet_int_no> The software interrupt vector number used by the packet driver program. This can be from 96 to 128. [/option] Includes the following: /h Show available parameters /d Delay Initial - The driver program will not initialize the network interface card until the packet driver program is accessed by its upper layer program. /w This parameter is only to be used in the Windows environment. /u Unload the packet driver. /n NetWare conversion. Convert 802.3 packets to 8137 packets /autosense This is the default setting, Auto detect the speed and duplex mode. /line_speed=10 Set speed to 10M bps. /line_speed=100 Set speed to 10M/100M bps. /slot=[1~f] Select the slot to work with. /turbo Disable PCI post write on Intel PCI chipset which gives the PCI bus higher priority over the other bus (EISA or ISA) /tp_full_duplex Select Twisted Pair interface running in full duplex mode. /io=[0xd000~0xef80] Select the IO base address. /int=[1~f] Select the adapter hardware INT number.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.
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.
