16-bit 10M Ethernet PC Card Installation Guide(Rev:2.0) Date: 2001/10/11 CONTENTS 1. Introduction 2. Installing PCMCIA Card Services package 2.1 Configuring LAN cards 3. Troubleshooting 1. Introduction This document briefly describes how to use the PCMCIA/CardBus LAN cards on a Linux operating system. Our PCMCIA/CardBus LAN cards have been supported by Linux since kernel 2.2.14. If your kernel version is older than this version or does not support our PCMCIA/CardBus LAN cards, please follow the procedures below to make use of our PCMCIA/CardBus LAN cards. Firstly, you need to install a standalone PCMCIA Card Services package which includes the network drivers, responds to card insertion and removal events, loading and unloading drivers on demand. To use the drivers provided by standalone PCMCIA Card Services package, configure the kernel with CONFIG_PCMCIA ("CardBus support") Disabled, then re-compile the kernel with the new configurations. If you don't know how to compile a kernel, please refer to the illustration of troubleshooting. Now, let follow step 2 to install the latest PCMCIA Card Services package. Chapter two discusses the installation of the PCMCIA Card Services package as well as the configuration of LAN cards. 2. Installing the PCMCIA Card Services package PRECAUTIONS:Card Services package for Linux is written by David Hinds <firstname.lastname@example.org>. It can be applied on most parts of Linux distributions, like RedHat, Slackware, Debian GNU/Linux S.u.S.E. Linux and TurboLinux. The latest Card Services version for the LAN card is available at <http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=2405>. To install the PCMCIA Card Services package, you need to install a full kernel source and perform the following shell commands and suppose that the kernel configuration has CONFIG_PCMCIA option disabled: 1. Download the "pcmcia-cs-3.1.xx.tar.gz" into the "/usr/src" directory. PS: xx is the latest version of the package 2. Run the following commands: #cd /usr/src #tar zxvf pcmcia-cs-3.1.xx.tar.gz #cd pcmcia-cs-3.1.xx #./Configure or make config #make all #make install Generally, to run "./Configure", you do not need to change the default selections. But if you want to use CardBus PC Card, enabled the (CardBus) option. 2.1 Configuring LAN cards For LAN card users, you need to edit the file "/etc/pcmcia/network.opts" to assign IP address, netmask, gateway IP, nameservers,broadcast address, and etc. The file will display as follows when it's being edited: #File: /etc/pcmcia/network.opts # # # #Host's IP address, netmask, network address, broadcast address IPADDR="188.8.131.52" NETMASK="255.255.255.128" NETWORK="184.108.40.206" BROADCAST="220.127.116.11" #Gateway address for static routing GATEWAY="18.104.22.168" #Things to add to /etc/resolv.conf for this interface DOMAIN="your.domain" SEARCH="" DNS_1="22.214.171.124" DNS_2="126.96.36.199" DNS_3="188.8.131.52" # # Be sure to restart the Linux machine after installing the Card Services package. Now the standalone PCMCIA Card Services package should be installed correctly. If not, read the "PCMCIA-HOWTO" or "README" for the details in the root directory of the Card Services source code or get it from any Linux's Documentation Web sites to resolve installation and configuraton problems. 3. Troubleshooting Q: Why couldn't I compile the latest standalone PCMCIA Card Services package on RedHat7.1? A: For whatever reasons, RedHat7.1 changes kernel's default configuration settings. To solve the problem, you must re-compile the kernel and disable the CONFIG_PCMCIA option. About the proper procedures, please refer to the following: #cd /usr/src/linux-2.x.x.x (x.x.x.x->your Linux kernel version) #make config Please disable the CONFIG_PCMCIA option, and the other options can use the default setting. #make dep #make clean #make bzImage #make modules #make modules_install #cp /usr/src/linux/System.map /boot/System.map-2.x.x.x #cp /usr/src/linux/arch/i386/boot/bzImage /boot/bzImage-2.x.x.x #cd /boot #rm System.map #ln -s System.map-2.x.x.x System.map #lilo -v -v -v #init -6 The system will restart. After Linux finished rebooting, please follow the step 2 to install the standalone PCMCIA Card Services package. PS. This probelm does not only happen on RedHat7.1, but also the Linux distributions which build-in the 2.4 Kernel.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.
