Plug & Play Note Our Plug&Play ethernet adapter supports jumper and jumperless/PnP modes. You can set the adapter's mode to jumper mode or to jumperless/PnP mode by the jumper on the card. The default mode is jumperless/PnP. You can then set the adapter's mode to jumperless or PnP by running setup.exe program provided in this driver diskette. It is recommended to use PnP mode if your PC's BIOS supports PnP feature, or it is preferred to use jumperless mode. If you set the adapter to Plug&Play mode and your PC does NOT support PnP BIOS, this adapter may work correctly only under Windows 95 and DOS environment with our drivers. This adapter may not work with any NE2000 compatible drivers because it is without any I/O base address and interrupt. In this case, You can set the operating mode of this adapter to jumperless and then setup the interrupt and I/O address. The configuration setup can be done by the setup.exe program provided in this diskette. If you set the adapter to Plug&Play mode and your PC DOES support PnP BIOS, The BIOS will auto-setup your adapter configuration. You don't need to set up the adapter's configuration any more. If there is any legacy ISA adapters as well as PnP adapters in your PC, Your PC's PnP BIOS perhaps connot auto-setup adapters' configuration correctly. The configuration of PnP adapters will potentially conflict with ISA adapters'. Your PC will potentially not work after you install a Plug&Play card. You must setup the configuration manually to prevent from resources conflict. There are many tools can be used to setup the configuration, such as BIOS's setup, CM.EXE configuration manager program provided by Intel and our setup.exe program for our PnP ethernet cards. If you set the adapter to PnP mode, Windows 95 will prompt you to install the driver when Windows 95 starts up. You can install driver either from this driver diskette or from Windows 95. The driver provided in this diskette is a specially designed turbo driver with parallel tasking features. The performancce of our driver is better. It is recommended to use the driver in this disk for our Plug&Play adapter instead of any other NE2000 compatible drivers. Windows 95 will auto-detect your adapter configuration. You don't need to set up the adapter configuration any more. If there are some ISA adapters as well as PnP adapters in your PC, your PC's BIOS perhaps connot auto-setup adapters' configuration correctly. The configuration of PnP adapters will pontentially conflict with ISA adapters'. You will be prompted to change the configuration of PnP adapters by Windows 95 if any configuration conflict occurs. You must set up your PnP adapters manually to prevent from the resource conflict.Download Driver Pack
