1. Installation Procedure

   The instruction to install the driver is summarized in the README.TXT
   file under each product's subdirectory.

2. Sample protocol.ini file and parameters

[ACCNE_NIF]

;  Default section of protocol.ini file for the Accton Adapter

    drivername = ETHPCM$
    irq = 5
    iobase = 0x300

; End of this sample file

Several parameters are included in the ACCNE_NIF section of the
PROTOCOL.INI file.  However, the only required parameter
is the "drivername".  The other parameters can use the
default values.

irq	    Specifies the interrupt channel used by the adapter.
	    Acceptable values for this parameter are 2, 3, 4, 5,
	    10, 11, 12, and 15.

iobase	    Specifies the iobase address used by the adapter.
	    This parameter is given in hexadecimal values.
	    Acceptable value for this parameter are 0x240, 0x280,
	    0x2C0, 0x300, 0x320, 0x340, 0x360.


3. Additional Parameters in the protocol.ini file for
the Accton NDIS Driver Configuration:

  Keyword	     Parameter

MaxMultiCast  1 .. 1000  Default 10
	      Maximum number of MultiCast Addresses.
	      This configures the size of the MultiCast
	      Address Table.


MaxRequests   6 .. 64  Default 8
	      Maximum number of outstanding General Requests.
	      This configures the size of the General Request
	      Queue.

TROUBLE SHOOTING and ERROR MESSAGES

    Run Accton's "1Step" installation/diagnostic program to determine if
    the Network Adapter is working correctly.

ERROR MESSAGES:

    ERROR: Adapter card not found or I/O port error.

    These are the possible reasons for this error:

    (1) The Adapter card is not installed correctly.
    (2) The failure is caused by more than one adapters trying to
	use the same set of I/O ports or IRQ number.
    (3) The Enabler ACCOPEN.EXE is not executed or it cannot enable
	the PCMCIA card because of resource conflicts with other
	PCMCIA cards.


    ERROR: Incorrect Media Setting or Bad Transceiver

    The following are the possible causes:

    (1) The transceiver is bad.
    (2) The cable is broken.
    (3) The cable is not attached.
