1. Enable the PCMCIA Fast Ethernet PC Card

   CARDOPEN.EXE is the PCMCIA Fast Ethernet PC Card MS-DOS enabler program.
   You have to run CARDOPEN.EXE to enable the adapter before loading the
   NDIS2 driver.

   After the adapter NDIS2 driver is installed, a line similar to
   the following is added in the CONFIG.SYS file to load the NDIS2
   driver at DOS initialization:

   DEVICE=C:\LANMAN.DOS\DRIVERS\ETHERNET\AX88190\AX88190.DOS

   For this NDIS2 driver to be successfully loaded, you must add a
   line in CONFIG.SYS to load CARDOPEN.EXE to enable the adapter first.
   The line to load CARDOPEN.EXE must precede the line to load the
   NDIS2 driver.

   The syntax to load CARDOPEN.EXE in CONFIG.SYS is:

   DEVICE=C:\LANMAN.DOS\DRIVERS\ETHERNET\AX88190\CARDOPEN.EXE [/IRQ:x][/IOP:xxx]

      * IRQ - interrupt (IRQ) number to be used by adapter.
              This number must not be in use by any other device
              in the system.

      * IOP - Starting I/O port address in HEX format.  The adapter
              requires 32 consecutive free I/O port addresses.

      The default value for IRQ is 3.  The default value for IO is
      0x300.

   Example:  The following command enables the adapter with IRQ 5 and
             I/O port address 300:

   DEVICE=C:\LANMAN.DOS\DRIVERS\ETHERNET\AX88190\CARDOPEN.EXE /IRQ:5 /IOP:300

   If you installed EMM386.EXE in CONFIG.SYS, please exclude memory
   address range D000-DFFF or D400-D7FF from EMM386.EXE.  CARDOPEN.EXE
   uses this memory space to read information stored on
   the adapter.

        [Example]
           DEVICE=EMM386.EXE NOEMS X=D000-DFFF

   If you run CARDOPEN.EXE with non-default IRQ and IO values,  you
   have to inform the NDIS2 driver which resource values to use in the
   PROTOCOL.INI file.  This file resides in the directory where the
   Microsoft LAN Manager software was installed, in most cases this is
   the C:\LANMAN.DOS directory.

   For example, if on your system IRQ 5 and I/O Base address 300 are
   free to be used by the adapter, then you specify a line
   in CONFIG.SYS to load CARDOPEN.EXE as described above.  Since IRQ 5
   is not the default value, you have to tell the NDIS2 driver the
   interrupt value to use.  You can use any text editor to edit the
   C:\LANMAN.DOS\PROTOCOL.INI file.  In this file you locate the
   [AX88190_NIF] section, and add the INTERRUPT keyword and its value
   in this section as follows:

      INTERRUPT = 5

   Please consult the sample configuration files at the end of this file
   for more examples.

2. NDIS Driver Installation for LAN Manager v2.2

  1. Enter 'SETUP' in the LAN Manager directory and press <Enter>.
     The Microsoft LAN Manager Setup screen appears.

  2. Select "Configuration" from the menu and then select "Network
     Drivers".

  3. Select <Add New Config> to display a list of Network Adapter Drivers.

  4. Select <Other Driver> and Setup prompts you to insert your
     network driver disk and enter the new path.

  5. Insert the adapter Driver Disk into the Floppy drive.  Enter the
     drive letter of the Floppy (e.g. A:\) and choose <OK>.

  6. Select the following driver from the available driver list:

       "PCMCIA Fast Ethernet PC Card"

  7. The "Network Protocol" screen appears.  Use the SPACEBAR to select
     the desired protocols to install.  If you have chosen the
     MS TCP/IP protocol, you will be prompted to enter the related
     TCP/IP Settings.

  8. Choose <OK> to confirm your configuration.  A Configuration Complete
     message appears on the screen.

  9. Press <Save> to save the configuration.

 10. If the LAN Manager Setup program asks for other driver files,
     please enter the path where the LAN Manager system files can
     be found.  Wait for the installation to complete.

 11. Press the F3 key to exit the Setup program.

 12. Copy the adapter enabler program CARDOPEN.EXE from the
     \ENABLER directory on the Driver Floppy to a directory
     on the hard disk, and add a line in CONFIG.SYS to load
     CARDOPEN.EXE as described in the first section of this file.
     If necessary, modify the PROTOCOL.INI file for the IRQ and
     I/O base address values and the connection type desired.

 13. Restart the system.

3. PROTOCOL.INI Keywords

   In [AX88190_NIF] section of the PROTOCOL.INI file, you can specify
   the following keywords:

   IOBASE    This keyword specifies the starting IO Address in
             hexadecimal format.  The default value is 300.

             This value must match the one reported by CARDOPEN.EXE.

   INTERRUPT This keyword specifies the IRQ value to be used by
             adapter. The default value is 3.

             This value must match the one reported by CARDOPEN.EXE.

   The following are the possible values for the CONNECTIONTYPE keyword:

   NWAY    Sets the connection type to be NWAY, or Auto-negotiation.
           Since the default connection type is NWAY, this keyword
           is redundant.

   S10     Forces the connection type to 10Mbps and half duplex.

   S10FD   Forces the connection type to 10Mbps and full duplex.

   S100    Forces the connection type to 100Mbps and half duplex.

   S100FD  Forces the connection type to 100Mbps and full duplex.
