SETUP.TXT Driver File Contents (ET32P-14.EXE)

SETUP program

The SETUP.INF file must be located at the same directory where the SETUP.EXE
is located. Otherwise, it will not work properly.

Since the adapter is designed with no switches or jumpers, the
configuration settings are stored in the EEPROM on the adapter and any
configuration change can be made via a software setup program.  The SETUP
program supplied in the driver diskette is used for this purpose.

Before running the SETUP program, make sure:

1. it is running in DOS environment with version 3.0 or higher.

2. your network software and drivers are not running.

Just type the following command to execute the program:

        A:\SETUP <enter>

Once SETUP program is loaded, it detects how many the PCI adapters are
installed in the computer and shows the configuration of each adapter. The
adapter configuration is shown in a lower window on the screen. You may use
"PgUp" or "PgDn" hot keys to browse the configuration of each adapter and
designate which adapter's configuration you want to change.

The program supports either mouse or keyboard user interface.

Hot Key Functions:

PgUp  - switch to another detected adapter (if multiple cards are found)
PgDn  - switch to another detected adapter (if multiple cards are found)
F10   - main menu for "Setup" or "Diagnostics" selections
F2    - Save configuration changes into the target adapter
Alt-I - "Install" pop-up menu
Alt-S - "Setup" pop-up menu
Alt-D - "Diagnostics" pop-up menu
Alt-X - Exit to DOS
Tab   - move cursor between "Ok", "Cancel", and selection block
Arrow keys - move menu bar or selection bar

For the target adapter, the SETUP program performs the following functions in
the main menu:

"Install" Pop-Up Menu

Provides a quick installation for NetWare DOS Client using the the PCI
adapter. Before doing the installation, the program will diagnose the
adapter first. If any failure is detected, please use the Diagnostics menu
to verify the function of the adapter.

It also provides a function to browse the driver installation information
for various network operating systems or software.

"Setup" Pop-Up Menu

Allows you to change the adapter configuration including:

 ù Boot ROM function

The configurable settings are summarized in the table below:

  Setting                  PCI Adapter
  -----------------     ------------------------------------------
  Boot ROM function     enable, disable

"Diagnostics" Pop-Up Menu

The program performs a Diagnostics procedure to the designated adapter. The
tests performed include :

  . Controller -------- verify the functionality of the controller chip
  . Interrupt --------- test the functionality of the selected interrupt
  . Memory ------------ test the buffer memory on the adapter
  . Node ID ----------- verify Node address
  . EEPROM ------------ verify content of EEPROM
  . Internal Loopback - loopback test within the adapter
  . External loopback - test the network cable connection(coax and tp)

In addition to the diagnostic function, it also provides a connectivity test.
The Connectivity Test allows you to test the adapter's ability to transmit and
receive data while on the network. To run the test, you need a second computer
set up as an echo station. The echo station receives packets from the adapter
being tested and echoes (loopback) them back to the adapter over the network.

To set up an echo station, follow these steps:

1. Install another adapter which is known to have no problem into a second

2. Run SETUP.EXE on the computer.

3. Press [->] to select "Dianostics" from the menu. Then
   select "Connectivity Test". A dialog window appears as below:

              ( ) Instruction for running Connectivity Test
              (o) Start Echo Station
              ( ) Start Network Link Test

                   [OK]  [Cancel]

4. Select "Start Echo Station Test" and press [OK].

5. The computer becomes an echo station. It will receive every packet with
   address 00 11 11 11 11 11 and echo the packets back to the adapter from
   which the packets were sent.

You may start the Connectivity Test for the adapter after an echo station has
been set up. Follow these steps:

1. Press [PgDn] or [PgUp] to select the adapter you want to test.

2. Press [->] or [<-] to select "Diagnostics" from the menu and press [Enter].

3. Select "Test Configuration" to set the maximum number of packets for the
   test. The default is 5000. Then, select "Connectivity Test".

4. Make sure an echo station is ready. Select "Start Network Link Test" and
   press [OK] to start the test.

              ( ) Instruction for running Connectivity Test
              (o) Start Echo Station
              ( ) Start Network Link Test

                   [OK]  [Cancel]

5. Select "Start Echo Station Test" and press [OK].

A status window will report several packet counters as shown below:

                        --------Connectivity Test---------
                              Transmit        Receive
                        Good [xxxxxxxxxx]   [xxxxxxxxx]
                        Bad  [xxxxxxxxxx]   [xxxxxxxxx]

The "Transmit" counters indicate the number of good and bad packets which have
been sent to the echo station. The "Receive" counters show the number of good
and bad packets echoed back from the echo station. This test is also very
useful in verifing a path between two computers on the network.

After Setpup

After you finished the setup procedure for the adapter on you computer, it is
recommended to reboot your system.

Download Driver Pack

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.

  • Otherwise, open Device Manager by right-clicking the Start menu and selecting Device Manager.
