    < I > To configure this adapter and install software, please type:

          INSTALL <Enter>

          and follow the "1Step" installation/configuration program.


    < II > Software Installation Hints

          1. The Accton EN2212 PCMCIA Ethernet Adapter must be enabled
	     before any of the drivers will work.  An enabler program, 
	     ACCOPEN.EXE, is included on the installation
	     diskette.  This program can be installed in CONFIG.SYS
	     as a DOS device driver, or it can be executed from the DOS 
	     command prompt.

	     ACCOPEN.EXE supports three kinds of environments.  If the 
	     Card Service Driver is installed, ACCOPEN.EXE will enable
	     the PCMCIA Adapter by using the services supplied by 
	     the Card Service.  The Card Service provides central
	     resource management for multiple PCMCIA cards and is the
	     preferred environment to use PCMCIA Cards.

	     If the Databook CardTalk Socket Service Driver is installed, 
	     ACCOPEN.EXE will enable the PCMCIA Adapter by going through
	     this Socket Service.  Because the socket service does not
	     provide resource management,  using multiple PCMCIA Cards at 
	     the same time may result in conflicts in resource requirements.  
	     This means the PCMCIA Card may not be able to be enabled.

	     If neither Card Service nor Socket Service is installed, 
	     ACCOPEN.EXE will try to enable the PCMCIA Card by programming
	     the PCMCIA controller directly.  The Databook TCIC and Intel
	     82365SL and their compatible controllers are supported.  The 
	     same caveat for the socket service also applies here.

          2. For those who installed EMM386.EXE in CONFIG.SYS, please
             exclude a range of memory from this program.  The PCMCIA
             Card Enabler, ACCOPEN.EXE, will use this space to read 
	     Ethernet ID and other information stored on the PCMCIA Card.

             Although ACCOPEN.EXE uses only 4K bytes of memory,  Card
             Service and other system software may require more
             to function properly.  It is recommended to reserve at
             least 8K for this purpose.  The more PCMCIA cards you
             intend to use at the same time, the more free memory you need.

                Example 1: DEVICE=EMM386.EXE NOEMS X=D400-D5FF

                  This example excludes 8K bytes from EMM386.  This is
                  the bare minimum for most Card Services to work.

                Example 2: DEVICE=EMM386.EXE NOEMS X=D000-D0FF

                  This example excludes only 4K worth of memory.  This
                  may not be enough for the Card Service to work.

                Example 3: DEVICE=EMM386.EXE NOEMS X=D000-DFFF

                  This example reserves 64K bytes of memory.  This is 
                  sufficient in most cases.

           3. For those who installed Card and Socket Services device drivers
              in yours CONFIG.SYS, please execute ACCOPEN.EXE after those device
              drivers since ACCOPEN is a Card Services Client and should only
              be  activated after  the Card and Socket  Services  drivers are
              activated.

                Example 1:(DataBook CardTalk)
                DEVICE=SS_2.SYS (Socket Service driver)
                DEVICE=CARDTALK.SYS (Card Service driver)
                DEVICE=ACCOPEN.EXE /PORT=300 /INT=5 

                Example 2:(SystemSoft CardSoft)
                DEVICE=SS365SL.EXE (Socket Service driver)
                DEVICE=CS.EXE (Card Service driver)
                DEVICE=CSALLOC.EXE C:\path\CSALLOC.INI
                DEVICE=ACCOPEN.EXE /PORT=300 /INT=5

                Example 3:(Phoenix PCMPlus)
                DEVICE=PCMSSDB.EXE (Socket Services driver)
                DEVICE=PCMCS.EXE (Card Service driver)
                DEVICE=ACCOPEN.EXE /PORT=300 /INT=5

    < III > To use Accton MPX driver:

          Accton MPX driver is a high performance NetWare 3.x ODI driver.

          It includes two drivers:

                MPXPCM.COM : NetWare DOS/ODI driver
                (A:\NETWARE\ODI\DOSODI\MPXPCM.COM)

                MPXPCM.LAN : NetWare 3.x server driver
                (A:\NETWARE\ODI\SERVER\MPXPCM.LAN)

          To run MPXPCM.LAN as a server driver, you must modify STARTUP.NCF
          as follows:

                SET MAXIMUM PHYSICAL RECEIVE PACKET SIZE = 4202

          and use LOAD & BIND command to start the server driver.

          Workstation driver MPXPCM.COM does not have any special requirement.
          You can run MPXPCM.COM in place of PCMMLID.COM.

          For example:
                       LSL
                       MPXPCM
                       IPXODI
                       NETX
                         .
                         .

          To achieve maximum performance, you must change server and
          workstation drivers to MPXPCM.LAN and MPXPCM.COM simultaneously.
          Otherwise, you just get the same performance as that of a NE2000
          compatible driver.

          Accton MPX driver supports NE2000 mode, and can process
          Ethernet_II, Ethernet 802.2, and Ethernet 802.3 frame types.

  • 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.
