  Novell NetWare 386 v3.11 Server Driver


*  System Requirements

*  Hardware Installation Guide

*  Copying Driver Files

*  Device Driver Installation Guide

*  Setting Driver Command Line Parameters

*  Installing More Than One Adapter


Hardware Requirements:

*  IBM-compatible personal computer (PC), 80486 or higher with PCI bus
    supporting bus master mode

*  This adapter

Software Requirements:

*  Novell NetWare 386 v3.11


*  L100.LAN          Device driver
*  ETHERTSM.NLM      Novell TSM module needed to run driver
*  LSLENH.NLM        Novell module needed in NetWare v3.11 to MSM31X.NLM
*  MSM31X.NLM        Novell MSM module needed to run driver
*  PATCHMAN.NLM      Novell module needed in NetWare v3.11 to MSM31X.NLM
*  MONITOR.NLM       Novell MONITOR module


*  See the User Guide for complete installation instructions.

*  When installing the adapter in a PCI computer, make sure the
    slot you select supports bus master operations.

*  No specialized setup is necessary for motherboards with automatic
    PCI parameterization (most new PCs support it).

*  For motherboards with bus master jumpers and interrupt jumpers for
   PCI slots:

   1. Using the appropriate motherboard jumper, enable bus master operations
        for the selected PCI slot.

   2. Using the appropriate motherboard jumper, select the interrupt to the
        selected PCI slot.

   3. Using your computer setup menu:

       *  Enable the bus master on the PCI slot.

       *  Enable I/O on the PCI slot.

       *  Define the interrupt number on the PCI slot.


First, copy the driver files from the A:\NETWARE\SERVER\3.11 subdirectory
 to the proper directory of server's hard disk.

*  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *

NOTE:  Failure to copy and use the these NLM files instead of the NLM
        files that came with the 3.11 version of NetWare may result in
        network failure or server abends.

The LAN driver is installed during the NetWare installation process.
 Use the instructions that follow, along with the instructions in the
 NetWare 386 v3.11 Installation Manual, to install the LAN driver.

1.  See "Load LAN Driver Module" in the Novell NetWare 386 v3.11
     Installation Manual for NetWare installation instructions.

2.  Following the instructions in the manual, start NetWare and
     configure the server.

3.  Load the LAN driver using the LOAD command.

     If the LAN driver is not located in the default directory, specify
     the file's path on the command line. The LOAD command prompts you
     for the configuration parameters if they are not supplied on the
     command line.

    You can save the LOAD command line parameters in a file with the name
     AUTOEXEC.NCF so they execute automatically when the server starts.
     See the Novell NetWare 386 v3.11 Installation Manual for details
     on how to create the AUTOEXEC.NCF file.

4.  At the server command line, type:

     LOAD PATCHMAN.NLM   [Enter]
     LOAD LSLENH.NLM     [Enter]
     LOAD MSM31X.NLM     [Enter]
     LOAD ETHERTSM.NLM   [Enter]

*  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *

NOTE:  The steps that follow load the L100.LAN file.

*  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *

5.  Then type the following command to load driver:

     LOAD L100 FRAME=ETHERNET_802.2    [Enter]

6.  Bind a protocol to the driver. For example:


     where XX is the logical network address for the frame type in your
     LOAD command.

7.  If you want to load the MONITOR.NLM module at the server console,
     you must use the MONITOR.NLM file provided by the driver diskette.
     Otherwise, the result is unpredictable.

8.  Add the following statement in the STARTUP.NCF file to configure
     the "Minimum Packet Receive Buffers" of NetWare Server :

        set Minimum Packet Receive Buffers = 512


This driver provides these parameters specified on the server console or
or added in the AUTOEXEC.NCF file.

   LOAD L100.LAN  SLOT=1 FRAME=ETHERNET_802.2    [Enter]

The parameters are listed as below :

   SLOT     The driver uses the slot number to identify the adapter.
            That is, the first adapter is considered to be in the slot 1,
              the next in slot 2, and so on.

   MEDIA    Specify the media type of adapter to use (between 0 to 5).

      0   -   auto-sense the media, including run-time auto-sense (default)
      1   -   100Base-Tx Half-Duplex mode
      2   -   100Base-Tx Full-Duplex mode
      3   -   10Base-T Half-Duplex mode
      4   -   10Base-T Full-Duplex mode
      5   -   10Base-2 (BNC)

   THRESHOLD Specify the Tx Threshold mode of adapter to use (between 0 to 6).

      0   -   Store and Forward (default)
      1   -   Threshold 36 Bytes
      2   -   Threshold 72 Bytes
      3   -   Threshold 96 Bytes
      4   -   Threshold 128 Bytes
      5   -   Threshold 160 Bytes
      6   -   Threshold 256 Bytes

NOTE:  The TxThreshold lets you choose the number of bytes read from the host
        memory into the transmit FIFO before the transmission. If the frame
        length is less than the threshold value, the adapter will start to
        transmit after a full frame is in the FIFO. The performance is better,
        if the smaller value is chosen. But if you have compatible problem, the
        Store and Forward or the bigger value is recommended.


If you have only one PCI adapter installed in the server, you do not
 need to specify the slot number in the LOAD command line.

If multiple PCI adapters are installed, the driver detects it and asks
 you for a slot number, or you can specify the slot number in the LOAD
 command line.

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.

  • 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.
