System Requirements

Hardware Requirements:

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

Software Requirements:

*  Novell NetWare 5

Files Provided

*  L100.LAN      Device driver
*  L100.LDI      Novell NetWare 5 Driver Installation Information file

Hardware Installation Guide

*  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.

Device Driver Installation Guide

The LAN driver is installed during the NetWare installation process.
 Use the instructions that follow, along with the instructions in the
 NetWare 5 Installation Manual, to install the LAN driver.

In addition, you will use the ConfigDisk during this procedure.

1. Insert the Driver Diskette into drive A: .

2. At the  NetWare prompt (indicated by the Server name), run the
    INSTALL.NLM program by typing:

        server name: LOAD INSTALL <Enter>

3. Select "Maintenance/Selective Install" and press <Enter>.

4. Select  " LAN Driver Options (Configure/Load/...) "  and press

5. Press the <Ins> key to specify other drivers to install.

6. Press  <F3>  and specify the driver path (A:\NETWARE\SERVER\5.0)
    and press <Enter>.

7. The driver should appear in your choice list for the
    'Select a LAN Driver' field. Choose this  driver to start the
    driver loading and binding procedure. This will allow you to
    load and bind all 4 frame types supported by NetWare.

8. Add the LOAD and BIND statements required to the server's
    AUTOEXEC.NCF file so that the LAN driver will load automatically
    each time the server starts up.

Setting Driver Command-Line Parameters

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.

Installing More Than One Adapter

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.
