1.0 What's New?
---------------

D-Link DE-220 Family Ethernet Adapter Rev. D equipped with
Just-In-Time-Interrupt (JITI) on board remarkably boosts its performance
and optimizes CPU Utilization.

The enhancement in throughput provided by JITI is astonishing. It's
the A.I. enabled network interface card in the industry and the best
performance card in the market. With JITI, the improved DE-220 Family
Ethernet Adapter's performance is sure to benefit most our users.

The DE-220 Family Ethernet Adapter Rev. D supports the Full Duplex mode
when using the 10BaseT media which provides the 20M Bits bandwidth for
data transferring.

For the BNC media, it can only be configured to Half Duplex Mode.

2.0 Overview
------------

All drivers will automatically detect the hardware information
including I/O base address and IRQ. The network media connector
type will also be automatically detected during driver
initialization.

After inserting the DE-220 Family Ethernet Adapter into a slot,
it is strongly recommended to run INSTALL.EXE in the DOS environment.
Then follow onscreen instructions to complete the installation process.

    2.1 About INSTALL.EXE
    ---------------------

    Before running the install.exe, please insert the
    DE-220 Family Ethernet Adapter into ISA bus slot in your computers.
    The install.exe program will find the available resource
    (IO base address and Interrupt number) for the
    DE-220 Family Ethernet Adapter automatically.

    For the Netware DOS Client users:
    ---------------------------------
    Selecting the "Quick Installation for Netware Client" item of the
    install.exe, installation program will copy the DE-220 driver to
    the computer and modified the autoexec.bat file of the computer.
    After installation, just restart the computer and will connect
    to the Netware server automatically.

    For the other users:
    --------------------
    Running install.exe will display the installation instructions.
    Follow the onscreen instructions to complete the installation
    process.

3.0 To view installation notes
------------------------------

Each directory contains text files which provides you with
detailed installation instructions for drivers in that directory.

We hope our new readmes and installations will minimize the users
