10/100 Fast Ethernet PCI Adapter


User's Manual

Thank you for purchasing our product!
This guide contains information to install and configure the 10/100 Fast
Ethernet PCI Adapter for proper operation. The 10/100 Fast Ethernet PCI
Adapter is a 32-bit 10/100 Mbps Ethernet network interface card for PCI
local bus-compliant PCs. It supports bus mastering architecture and
auto-negotiation which make it possible to use one common RJ-45 port and
standard twisted-pair cabling for both 10 Mbps and 100 Mbps connection.
Extensive driver support for commonly used network operating systems is
also provided.

Hardware Description

The 10/100 Fast Ethernet PCI Adapter has a RJ-45 connector and two LED
indicators.

   LED Indicators

     The adapter provides LED indicators for monitoring network conditions.
     This section describes the function of each LED.

     100BASE-TX Status Indicator (100)
       Color    : Green
       Function : Network connection indicator for 100 Mbps port

       This LED is used with 100BASE-TX only.
       It lights up to indicate that the port is operating at 100 Mbps.

     10BASE-T Status LED Indicator (10)
       Color    : Green
       Function : Network connection indicator for 10Mbps port

       This LED is used with 10Base-T only.
       If lights up to indicate that the port is operating at 10Mbps.

     Summary of LED Display
       During normal network operation, the adapter's LEDs display the
       following indications:

Hardware Installation

1. Power off the PCI Local bus PC and remove its cover.
   Please refer to your computer's Installation Manual for instructions on
   how to remove the cover.
2. Select an available slot and plug in the adapter.
   The adapter provides a 32-bit bus interface.
   It plugs into any available PCI bus slot that supports Bus Master mode.
   Remove the bracket on the slot you've selected, then insert the adapter
   into the slot. Carefully push the adapter into the slot until all the edge
   connectors are firmly in place. Screw the adapter's face plate onto the
   opening in the back of the computer to secure the connection. Then replace
   the PC's cover.
3. Connect your adapter to the network.
   Connect the adapter to the network using twisted-pair cabling with an
   RJ-45 connector.
4. Power on the PC.
   After hardware installation has been completed, power on the computer.
5. Change your computer's BIOS setup to enable Bus Master mode and select an
   IRQ setting.
   The setup procedure and the terminology used when referring to Bus Master
   mode and IRQ parameters may vary with your computer's BIOS. Some BIOS have
   Bus Master mode enabled for all the motherboard's PCI expansion slots,
   while others provide the option to turn this feature on or off. Refer to
   your computer's installation manual for more information. Please see the
   following section on Adapter Configuration for related information.
6. Install the software driver.
   For related topics see the section on Software Drivers later in this
   chapter.




Adapter Configuration

The adapter is configured using the host PCI computer's BIOS setup program.
This is done by changing the computer's BIOS setting to enable bus master
mode, and then setting up the IRQ. The procedure to implement this and the
terminology used depend on the BIOS you are using.

Some BIOS have Bus Master mode enabled for all the motherboard's PCI
expansion slots; others provide the option of turning this feature on or off.
For example, if your computer uses the Phoenix BIOS, there is a "Device
Select" field where you should input the slot number of the PCI slot where
the adapter is installed, say "Slot 3 Device." Then for the fields that read
as "Enable Device" and "Enable Master" you should change the settings to
"Enabled."  The same is true for the adapter's IRQ setting, which is mapped
to the BIOS IRQ setup of the host PCI computer.

Finally, you need to set the Trigger/Routing field to select the Trigger
method by which the IRQ is assigned or routed to the PCI slot.  There are
three types of settings to choose from:

  * Level/Auto   - This is usually the default.  Choosing this option leaves
                   the assigned IRQ free for other use if the installed card
                   does not use it.
  * Level/Forced - If you are not able get the PCI card to work properly,
                   choose this option.  This will assign the specified IRQ
                   permanently to the card.
  * Edge/Auto    - Some PCI boards support this option.  Do not use it for
                   this card.

    Note : The PCI adapters can only function with the EMM386.exe memory
           manager program version 4.49 or later.  You can verify its version
           number by entering EMM386 at the DOS Prompt.

           Do not specify the "highscan" option with the EMM386.exe statement
           in your config.sys file or your system will hang.

           If you run MEMMAKER and select Custom Setup, do not specify
           "Aggressively scan upper memory", or it will automatically insert
           the HIGHSCAN flag into the EMM386 command line.  This parameter
           cannot be manually removed once it's installed, doing so will
           cause the extended memory manager to malfunction.
