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 bringing up
      the DOS ODI driver.

      The syntax for CARDOPEN is:

         CARDOPEN [/IRQ:x][/IOP:xxx]

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

         * IOP - Starting I/O port address in hexadecimal format.
                 PC Card requires 32 consecutive free I/O port
                 addresses.

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

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

            CARDOPEN /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 space to read configuration information from the adapter.

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

2. Load the PCMCIA Fast Ethernet PC Card DOS ODI Driver.

      The directory "\NETWARE\DOSODI" on the Driver Disk contains the
      adapter DOS ODI driver.  You need the following files to bring
      up the DOS ODI driver.

        a. LSL.COM: supplied by Novell.
        b. AX88190.COM: DOS ODI driver.  Included on this Disk.
        c. IPXODI.COM: supplied by Novell.
        d. VLM.EXE or NETX.EXE: supplied by Novell.
        e. NET.CFG: optional configuration file.

      A sampe batch file STARTNET.BAT is provided in this directory.
      This batch file executes the above commands in correct sequence
      automatically.  After you run this batch file, and if there is a
      Novell Netware Server on the network, you can login to the Netware
      Server.

      You can specify optional parameters for the DOS ODI driver in the
      NET.CFG file.  The following is a sample of this file:

      ----------------------------------------------------------------

      Protocol
         Bind AX88190

      LINK DRIVER AX88190
         INT 5
         PORT 300
         FRAME Ethernet_802.3
         FRAME Ethernet_802.2
         FRAME Ethernet_II
         FRAME Ethernet_SNAP
         ; NWAY
         ; S10
         ; S10FD
         ; S100
         ; S100FD

      NetWare DOS Requester
         FIRST NETWORK DRIVE = F
         NETWARE PROTOCOL = NDS BIND

   ----------------------------------------------------------------

   The NET.CFG keywords are explained below:

   PORT    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.

   IRQ     This keyword specifies the IRQ value to be used by PC CARD.
           The default value is 3.

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

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

   S10     If this keyword is specified, the connection type is forced to
           10Mbps and half duplex.

   S10FD   If this keyword is specified, the connection type is forced to
           10Mbps and full duplex.

   S100    If this keyword is specified, the connection type is forced to
           100Mbps and half duplex.

   S100FD  If this keyword is specified, the connection type is forced to
           100Mbps and full duplex.

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).

  • 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.
