   1. Enable the PCMCIA Fast Ethernet PC Card

      CARDOPEN.EXE is the adapter MS-DOS enabler program. You have to
      run CARDOPEN.EXE to enable the adapter before bringing up
      the packet 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 DOS Packet Driver AX8190PD

      AX8190PD syntax:

        AX8190PD [option] packet_int_no <int_level> <io_addr>

        -i -- Force driver to report itself as IEEE 802.3 instead of
              Ethernet II.
        -d -- Delayed initialization.  Used for diskless booting
        -n -- NetWare conversion.  Converts 802.3 packets into 8137 packets
        -w -- Windows hack, obsoleted by winpkt
        -p -- Promiscuous mode disable
        -a -- Auto-Negotiation Mode
        -1 -- Line Speed 10M, Half Duplex Mode
        -2 -- Line Speed 10M, Full Duplex Mode
        -3 -- Line Speed 100M, Half Duplex Mode
        -4 -- Line Speed 100M, Full Duplex Mode
        -u -- Uninstall

        PACKET_INT_NO    This parameter specifies the software interrupt
                         where the packet driver is loaded. It must be in
                         the range 0x60 to 0x80.

                         This is a required parameter.

                         The value you specified for this parameter
                         must start with 0x to indicate this is a
                         hexadecimal value.

        [IRQ]            This specifies the hardware interrupt (IRQ)
                         value.

                         Note that this value must match the IRQ value
                         you specified for CARDOPEN.EXE or the one
                         reported by CARDOPEN.EXE.

        [IO_BASE]        This specifies the starting I/O address.

                         The value you specified for this parameter
                         must start with 0x to indicate this is a
                         hexadecimal value.

                         Note that this value must match the IOP value
                         you specified for CARDOPEN.EXE or the one
                         reported by CARDOPEN.EXE.

     Example 1:

           The following command loads the Packet Driver at
           software interrupt 0x60, I/O address 0x300, and hardware
           interrupt 5.

           Since no command line option is specified, the connection
           type is set to Auto-negotiation.

              AX8190PD 0x60 5 0x300

     Example 2:

           The following command loads the Packet Driver at
           software interrupt 0x60, I/O address 0x320, and hardware
           interrupt 5.

           Since the '-2' option is specified, this forces the connection
           type to: Line Speed 10Mbps, Full Duplex Mode.

              AX8190PD -2 0x60 5 0x320

     Example 3:

           The following command unloads the Packet Driver.

              AX8190PD -u

   A sample batch file START.BAT is included in this directory.  This
   batch file first executes CARDOPEN.EXE and then brings up the packet
   driver.  To use this batch file on your computer you may
   have to modify the IRQ and IO_BASE values.

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.
