1 LANtastic 6.0 v1.03 LANtastic* 6.0 installation notes for the Intel EtherExpress(TM) PRO/100B PCI LAN adapter ========================================================================= Location of driver: \NDIS\E100B.DOS General Instructions (sample configuration files below) ------------------------------------------------------- The installation procedure transfers files to a specific directory on the workstation and creates or modifies existing configuration files to fit your specific needs. The installation utility, INSTALL.EXE, is located on LANtastic Network Software Disk 1. 1 Run INSTALL.EXE from Disk 1. 2 The LANtastic Install program screen appears. You must complete each of the questions. These options are specific to your needs. 1 Asks for a unique computer name. 2 Asks you to select the drive that you want LANtastic to be installed on. The default is Drive C:. 3 Asks you to specify a directory where you want the LANtastic files to be installed. The default is \LANTASTI. 4 Asks if you want to share your computer's drives or printers. 5 Asks you to select the maximum number of connected computers. 6 Prompts you to select any other LANtastic features that you may want to install. 7 Summarizes the options you selected. If it looks correct, continue with the installation. 8 Prompts you to select a network adapter to run your LANtastic software on. From the list of adapters, select "NDIS SUPPORT FOR NETWORK ADAPTERS". 9 Asks you to insert the manufacturer's driver diskette. Insert the Intel Configuration and Drivers diskette into drive A: and specify the source path for driver files as A:\NDIS. 10 Asks if you want to Set Up Permanent Drive or Printer Connections. 11 Summarizes the options you selected. If they are correct, choose Perform the Installation and LANtastic will install the files. Hints and Tips ============== Below are sample CONFIG.SYS, STARTNET.BAT and PROTOCOL.INI files. These are the three files with EtherExpress PRO/100B configuration options that the Install program creates. For details on PROTOCOL.INI parameters, see the end of this document.

[E100B_NIF] DRIVERNAME = E100B$ Parameters for the PROTOCOL.INI file are listed below. DRIVERNAME: (required) If you have a single adapter, use the syntax in the Sample Configuration file section. If you are installing multiple adapters, each adapter must have a unique driver name. Additional instances of the driver would be referenced by DRIVERNAME=E100Bx$, where "x" is a unique number 2 through 9. SPEED: (optional; parameters are [Auto / 10 / 100]) The parameter disables Auto-Speed Detect and causes the adapter to function at the speed indicated. If the FORCEDUPLEX parameter is assigned to either 1 or 2, the SPEED parameter is required because auto-speed sensing is disabled if the duplex mode is forced. Auto-negotiate devices cannot detect speed changes in this configuration until the driver is reloaded.[Example: SPEED=100] FORCEDUPLEX: Full duplex and auto-negotiate capabilities vary between the PRO/100 TX and the PRO/100 T4 adapters. EtherExpress PRO/100B TX adapter: Supports auto-negotiate, full and half duplex at 10 or 100 Mbps. EtherExpress PRO/100B T4 adapter: Supports full and half duplex at 10 Mbps; supports only half duplex at 100 Mbps. Auto- negotiate is not a valid option at either speed. This parameter disables Auto-Negotiate capability and forces the adapter to operate in Half or Full Duplex mode. The SPEED parameter must be specified and must be valid if the default of Auto- negotiate is changed. Options for FORCEDUPLEX are Auto (for auto- negotiate), 1 (for half), 2 (for full). [Example: FORCEDUPLEX = 2] SLOT: (required for multiple adapters) This parameter is optional if only one adapter is present. If it is specified but is incorrect, a message indicates that the value doesn't match the configuration but the driver finds the adapter and loads anyway. This parameter is required if more than one adapter is present in either one bus or multiple PCI buses of a system. The parameter tells the driver which adapter it controls. The SLOT number is the encoded value of the PCI adapter's device location. To determine the slot number, load the driver with only the DRIVERNAME parameter specified. The driver reports all the slots that have PCI adapter(s) installed. You can determine which card is in which slot by using SETUP.EXE and matching the Ethernet addresses of the adapter to the device number specified in View Configuration. [Example: SLOT=0x1C] NODE: (optional) This value sets the adapter's Individual Address, overriding the value read from the adapter EEprom. The address must consist of 12 hexadecimal digits, enclosed in double quotes. The value can not be all zeros. The value can not have the Multicast bit set. So, use only the hexadecimal digits 2, 6, A, or E as the second digit of the twelve required in the NODE ADDRESS parameter. Use any hexadecimal digits in all other positions.[Example: NODE = "02AA00123456"] * Third-party trademarks are the property of their respective owners.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.
