CardBus Fast Ethernet Adapter Installation for Netware DOS ODI Driver Contents -------- .Introduction .Requirements .Minimum Skill Level .Getting Started .Keyword Definition Introduction ------------ The ODI driver program allows you to run multiple protocol stacks and install up to two network adapters in a workstation. This ODI driver supports the Port, Node Address, Protocol and Frame options for creating your own NET.CFG file. For more information on these keywords, please refer to Novell's "NetWare ODI shell for DOS - NET.CFG options". This installation assumes that the PCMCIA drivers are working properly. Please consult \PCMCIA\README.TXT for help with PCMCIA Drivers. Getting Started will describe the installation instructions. Requirements ------------ .A PCMCIA compatible Laptop .An ODI compatible network operating system .A CardBus Fast Ethernet PC Card .A knowledge of basic DOS commands and editing text files Minimum Skill Level ------------------- .A knowledge of basic DOS commands .A knowledge of editing text files .A knowledge of DOS basic file structure (CONFIG.SYS and AUTOEXEC.BAT) .A knowledge of the network driver configuration being used .Please see Support Options if you are not comfortable will this skill level Getting Started --------------- There are 2 methods, manual installation (for NW 3.11 wks) and Novell Client install (for NW 3.12 & 4.x) Manual Installation ------------------- 1. Copy the A:\NETWARE\CB102.COM file from diskette to the Netware client directory containing Novell's LSL.COM, IPXODI.COM and NETx.COM files. 2. Follow Novell's instructions on using ODI programs. You can substitute the NE2000.COM whenever a reference is made to the Hardware Specific Module. A typical ODI workstation startup batch file includes: >LSL ; Link Support Layer Module provided by Novell >CB102 ; Hardware Specific Module >IPXODI ; IPX Protocol Stack Module provided by Novell >NETx ; DOS Shell Support Module provided by Novell >LOGIN Novell Client Installation -------------------------- 1. Run the NetWare Client Install v1.21 -Get the 4 Client disks from the network administrator or -Run the \NWCLIENT\INSTALL.EXE in a previous installation 2. A message appears on the screen asking you whether or not you want the program to perform modifications on your AUTOEXEC.BAT and CONFIG.SYS files. 3. Answer "Yes". The program then modifies your AUTOEXEC.BAT and CONFIG.SYS files accordingly and creates backup copies. 4. The following message appears: -Install support for MS Windows? (Y/N): 5. Answer accordingly and provide a path if necessary. 6. The program displays the following: - Configure your workstation for backup by a NetWare server running software such as SBACKUP? (Y/N): No 7. Answer accordingly and provide a path if necessary. 8. Select a driver for your network board. 9. From the driver list, select "Other Drivers". 10. Go to the Insert the Driver Disk dialog box and specify the path where the ODI driver and INS files reside. For example: A:\NETWARE 11. Press Enter and select the target ODI driver. 12. Specify the driver's optional settings. 13. Press F10 to save to new configuration. 14. Highlight "Install press here" and press <Enter> to install. The program copies the necessary files for NetWare Client. Continue the installation procedure to completion. Upon completion, a new NET.CFG file will be created in your DOS directory. Typically, this file contains the following lines: Link Driver CB102 PORT E000 INT 11 ;FRAME Ethernet_802.3 FRAME Ethernet_802.2 : Edit STARTNET.BAT for the ODI workstation performs the following: SET NWLANGUAGE=ENGLISH --Set NetWare 4.X to English language LSL --Link Support Layer Module provided by Novell CB102 --Hardware Specific Module IPXODI --IPX Protocol Stack Module provided by Novell VLM --DOS Support Module provided by Novell F: --Change to connected device LOGIN .ADMIN --Login to file server as user ADMIN 15. Run STARTNET to access the Novell network. NET.CFG Keywords Available ------------------------- This note lists the available NET.CFG keywords for the ODI DOS device driver users. Most of the keywords are optional and come with default values. The available keywords, led by ";", for the NET.CFG file are as follows: *** Example NET.CFG file *** ------------------------------------------- Protocol IPX Bind #1 Link Driver CB102 ; NODE ADDRESS xxxxxxxxxxxx ; PORT E000 ; INT 11 frame Ethernet_802.3 ; frame Ethernet_802.2 ; frame Ethernet_II ; frame Ethernet_SNAP ; Protocol IPX 00 Ethernet_802.3 ; Protocol IPX E0 Ethernet_802.2 ; Protocol IPX 8137 Ethernet_II Keyword Definition ------------------ Node Address - This keyword specifies the node address (in hexadecimal notation)used by the adapter. This option is used only to override the node address stored in the adapter. If this keyword is included, the specified address will be used instead of the adapter's actual node address. PORT - This keyword specifies the I/O base address used by the adapter. This value must match the actual I/O base address setting on the adapter. If this keyword is not specified, the default value will be put into effect. INT - This keyword specifies the interrupt line used by the adapter. This value must match the actual IRQ setting on the adapter. If this keyword is not specified, the default value will be put into effect. FRAME - This keyword specifies the supported frame types. Four types are available: ETHERNET_802.3, ETHERNET_802.2, ETHERNET_II and ETHERNET_SNAP. AUTOSENSE - Auto detect the speed and duplex mode. 100_Full - User force the media to 100 Mbps and full duplex mode. 100_Half - User force the media to 100 Mbps and half duplex mode. 10_Full - User force the media to 10 Mbps and full duplex mode. 10_Half - User force the media to 10 Mbps and half duplex mode.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.
