Sample PROTOCOL.INI Files and Parameters
----------------------------------------
[RTSND_NIF]
  DriverName = RTSND$
  MEDIUM=_AUTO          ;Specify adapter's medium which identifys
                        ;adapter's speed and duplex mode.
                        ;   MEDIUM=_AUTO    operate on auto negotiation mode
                        ;   MEDIUM=_10HALF  operate on 10M/HalfDuplex mode
                        ;   MEDIUM=_10FULL  operate on 10M/Fullduplex mode
                        ;   MEDIUM=_100HALF operate on 100M/HalfDuplex mode
                        ;   MEDIUM=_100FULL operate on 100M/Fullduplex mode

  ;Multiple adapters keyword "EtherID" or "BusNo" & "DeviceNo"
  ;EtherID=@00123456789A ;The keyword "EtherID" is used to desinate a adapter's
                         ;ethernet address when multiple adapters exist.
  ;BusNo=0               ;The keyword "BusNo" & "DeviceNo" are used together
  ;DeviceNo=10           ;to desinate a adapter when multiple adapters exist.

There are several parameters included in the RTSND_NIF section of the
PROTOCOL.INI file. However, the only parameter that you should specify
is the "drivername."

If you change other parameter settings, such as the _100FULL, make sure
that it matches the hardware setting.  Otherwise, the adapter may fail.

If you don't specify these settings, the NDIS/2 driver
will automatically detect them.
