8 Server: NetWare server parameters v1.00 NetWare* Server Driver LOAD Line Parameters for the Intel EtherExpress(TM) PRO/100+ PCI Adapter ========================================================= FORCEDUPLEX: Duplex modes: Auto-negotiate: The adapter negotiates with the switch/hub how to send/receive packets, either full or half duplex. If unsuccessful at negotiating the duplex, the adapter defaults to half duplex. You must have an auto-negotiating switch/hub (an Nway* switch) to get full duplex support with the FORCEDUPLEX parameter set to 0 (auto- negotiation). Full duplex: The adapter sends and receives packets at the same time. This improves the performance of your adapter. Set duplex mode to full duplex ONLY if you have a hub/switch that supports full duplex. Half duplex: The adapter performs one operation at a time. It either sends or receives. Note: The PRO/100B T4 adapter does not support full duplex at 100 Mbps, nor does the T4 adapter support Auto-Negotiation, or Nway. The PRO/100+ TX adapter does not have any of these limitations. Syntax: FORCEDUPLEX=n Where n=0 auto-negotiate (PRO/100+ TX adapter only) 1 half duplex 2 full duplex Note: If the adapter is set to half or full duplex, set the SPEED parameter to either 10 or 100. (see SPEED below) Default: auto-negotiation (PRO/100+ TX adapter) half duplex (PRO/100B T4 adapter) Examples: PRO/100+ TX (100 Mbps full duplex): FORCEDUPLEX=2 SPEED=100 PRO/100+ TX (10 Mbps full duplex): FORCEDUPLEX=2 SPEED=10 PRO/100B T4 (100 Mbps full duplex): Not Supported PRO/100B T4 (10 Mbps full duplex): FORCEDUPLEX=2 SPEED=10 SLOT (required): For PCI adapters, SLOT is derived from bus number and device location as defined by the PCI specification. One way to determine the slot number is to load the driver from the command line. You'll be prompted with valid device number(s) for the adapter(s). Select one of them. Syntax: SLOT=n (n = 1,2,3,4,...) SPEED: Specifies the speed the driver uses. If you don't use this parameter, the driver automatically detects the network speed. If unable to autosense, the driver defaults to 10 Mbps. NOTE: You must set the SPEED parameter to either 10 or 100 if you're setting the FORCEDUPLEX parameter to either half or full. If you use this parameter, the driver operates at the specified speed instead of auto-detecting network speed. Syntax: SPEED=n (n = 10 or 100) Default: The adapter automatically senses speed. NODE: Specifies a local administered address (LAA) unique to each adapter. Use this option to provide your own unique node address for the adapter. The node address is a 12-digit hexadecimal number; the second digit must be one of the following digits: 2, 6, A, E. Syntax: NODE=xnxxxxxxxxxx n = 2, 6, A, E x = hexadecimal number Default: The adapter's assigned address. FRAME: Indicates one of four valid frame types the system is transmitting and receiving. Syntax: FRAME=n n = Ethernet_802.2 Ethernet_802.3 Ethernet_II Ethernet_SNAP Default: Ethernet_802.2 TXTHRESHOLD: Represents the threshold for transmits from extender SRAM FIFO (output buffer). Syntax: TXTHRESHOLD=n (n = number of 8 bytes) For example, 16 represents 16x8 (or 128 bytes). In this case, the LAN controller transmits after copying 128 bytes from the host memory. Default: dynamically set The maximum number that you can specify is 200 (200x8=1600 bytes) which ensures there will not be any underruns. * 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.
