CUSTOM KEYWORDS in driver in protocol.ini:

BusNum
DevNum
FuncNum or PortNum
LineSpeed
Duplex
NodeAddress


BusNum:
This decimal parameter, range from 0-255, specifies the PCI bus number on which the
ethernet controller is located.

DevNum:
This decimal parameter, range from 0-31, specifies the PCI device number assigned
to the ethernet controller.

FuncNum or PortNum:
This decimal parameter, range from 0-7, specifies the PCI function or port number
assigned to the ethernet controller.

LineSpeed:
This decimal parameter, 10/100, specifies the speed of the network connection.

Duplex:
This string parameter, HALF/FULL, specifies duplex mode on the ethernet controller.
The Linespeed parameter must be set when this keyword is used. If neither the Duplex
nor the Linespeed paramaters are specified the ethernet controller will default to
autonegotiate mode.

NodeAddress:
This string parameter specifies the network address used by the the ethernet controller.
If Multicast Address or Broadcast Address was specified, the default MAC Address will
be used.


Note: The first three keywords are used concurrently and have been included for 
      manufacturing purposes.  Do not use them unless you are familiar with PCI
      device configuration.
      These three keywords are needed if multiple NetXtreme boards are on a system 
      and (a) specific NetXtreme adapter/s need to be loaded in specific order.


Example of the use of these key words in the protocol.ini:
		
[B44]
    DriverName = "B44$"
    BusNum = 3
    DevNum = 14
    PortNum = 2
    LineSpeed = 100
    Duplex = Full
    NodeAddress = "001020304050"

To add more adapter(up to 4) repeat the below entry, where n can be from 2 to 4.

[B44_n]
    DriverName = "B44n$"
    BusNum =
    DevNum =

Example of using addition entries to load more than one adapter in the protocol.ini:

[B44]
    DriverName = "B44$"
    BusNum = 3
    DevNum = 10

[B44_2]
    DriverName = "B442$"
    BusNum = 3
    DevNum = 11

[B44_3]
    DriverName = "B443$"
    BusNum = 3
    DevNum = 12

[B44_4]
    DriverName = "B444$"
    BusNum = 3
    DevNum = 13


NOTE: In some cases due to memory constraints the command NET START may not function
      properly.  For these situations NET START BASIC is recommended.

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.
