                  NETGEAR FA310TX Fast Ethernet PCI Adapter
                  -----------------------------------------
         Driver Installation for Microsfot Windows for Workgroups 3.11
         -------------------------------------------------------------

  Installation Procedure
  ----------------------
  1.  In Program Manager, open "Network" -> "Network Setup" -> "Drivers".

  2.  In the "Network Drivers" window, select "Add Adapter".

  3.  When installing the LAN driver, Windows for Workgroups (WfW) will
      present a list of all available drivers.  However, the NETGEAR
      FA310TX driver is not included in the system software.  Select
      "Unlisted" for 3rd party adapters not in the driver list.

  4.  WfW will ask for the drive/path containing the FA310TX drivers.
      Provide the path to the OEMSETUP.INF file in the \WFW311 directory.

        eg. A:\WFW311 if installing from the provided driver disk.

      WfW should copy the appropriate drivers to the system.

  5.  Select the "NETGEAR FA310TX Fast Ethernet PCI Adapter".
    
      At this point, the driver has been properly copied and the
      installation would proceed to the next step.  Please refer to your
      WfW installation guide for the correct procedures.

      After the initial installation, the FA310TX WfW driver is permanently
      installed into the system.  Subsequent accesses to the network driver
      list will include this driver as one of the options.

  Advanced Setup
  --------------
  The FA310TX Windows for Workgroups driver configures the adapter card
  to operate in autosensing mode by default.  In this mode, the card
  automatically selects the most appropriate operating speed and duplex
  mode.  There might be instances when you need to force the adapter card
  to operate at a particular speed and duplex mode.  The following procedure
  guides you into the Windows for Workgroups system for this setting.

  1.  In Program Manager, open "Network" -> "Network Setup" -> "Drivers".

  2.  In the "Network Drivers" window, select the "Setup" button.

  3.  In the Advanced Network-Adapter Settings window will show two
      parameters

        "[NDIS2] AutoSense/Half/Full_Duplex" and
        "[NDIS2] Line Speed 10M/100M"

  4.  To choose an approprate connection type, the two parameters must be
      set together. The combinations of the two parameters are listed
      below.

      Connection Type            AutoSense/Half/Full_Duplex     Line Speed
      ÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄ
      Autosense                  AutoSense
      10Base-T                   TP                             MB10
      10Base-T Full duplex       TP_FULL_DUPLEX                 MB10
      100Base-TX                 TP                             MB100
      100Base-TX Full duplex     TP_FULL_DUPLEX                 MB100


      Choose the approprate settings as needed.
