Notes on Setup ÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍ For Novell NetWare installation, first insert the Driver Diskette provided into drive A, and type INSTALL at the A drive command prompt. The Installation program will copy files to the destination directory and You may have to manually modify; a) your CONFIG.SYS if you have multi-menu configuration. b) if you not using the default frame type of 802.2 or you are installating more that one frame types support. You need to modify the NET.CFG file. For Windows 95 and 98, Windows automatically detect and prompt to install the driver for it. Just insert the driver disk in drive A and click Next. For Windows NT, ensure the PCMCIA device in started before you install the PCMCIA Fast Ethernet card. Install by clicking the "Network" icon in Control Panel. For Windows for Workgroup use the "Network Setup" utility provided in Windows to install Fast Ethernet Adapter to the system and system will load the drivers After installation, simply reboot the machine to enable PCMCIA Fast Ethernet Card. 2. Install PCMCIA Software Manually ÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍ If for any reason the Installation Software failed to complete. You can follow the few simple steps to copy the enabler from the Drivers Disk to your local hard disk of the PC. a) If you have Windows for Workgroup follow the instructions in their respective directory for installing PCMCIA Card. b) Determine if any third party generic enabler has been installed on your PC. You identify this by a search through the CONFIG.SYS file for the following lines: Vendor Device Loaded in CONFIG.SYS ÄÄÄÄÄÄ ÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄ Awards Software DEVICE=C:\CARDWARE\PCENABLE.EXE System Soft DEVICE=C:\CARDSOFT\CARDID.EXE Phoenix DEVICE=C:\PCMPLUS\PCMSCD.EXE If one of them exist in your CONFIG.SYS, then you can use it to enable the PCMCIA Ethernet Card. Follow the PCMCIA installation instruction in the manual that come with your PC. c) If you decide to use the accompanied Enabler, or if the generic enabler does not support the PCMCIA Fast Ethernet Card, follow steps below. d) Insert Driver Disk in drive A:. e) Type CD C:\ at the command prompt. f) Type MD C:\TX16DIAG to make a new directory. g) Type COPY A:\EABLER\*.* C:\TX16DIAG to copy the enabler to your directory. h) Modify the PATH= statement in your AUTOEXEC.BAT to include path C:\TX16DIAG. Change From PATH=<Original Path> To PATH=<Original Path>;C:\TX16DIAG i) If you have EMM386.EXE loaded, make sure to exclude the memeory range, x=c800-c8ff If there is more than one PCMCIA adapter installed in the machine, exclude a wider range for the memory address. e.g. x=c800-cfff j) Use LANEN.EXE to enable Compex LinkPort PCMCIA card no matter whether your machine has Card and Socket Service software loaded or not. 3.

Notes on using EMM386 or QEMM ÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍ PCMCIA Cards standard is first designed for memory cards, and then the I/O cards specification is added. Therefore all I/O cards (including Ethernet) must be initialised as memory cards and then switched into I/O mode operation by an enabler software. Therefore, the enabler software (such as LANEN.EXE) must see the PCMCIA card memory when it is executed. DOS Extended memory manager such as EMM386 and QEMM take control of entire PC memory space and disable any PCMCIA card memory space. There are two solutions available: (a) Run enabler to enable the card before EMM386 or QEMM is loaded. (b) Exclude at least 4K of memory from EMM386 or QEMM controlling, then run the enabler. This is most suitable for DOS ODI or NDIS enabler. To find out free memory you can use, reboot machine and press <F5> then the screen displays Starting MS-DOS... Run MSD and press <M> to display memory available. ---------------- End -----------------Download Driver Pack
