Card Test and Diagnostic Program for Ethernet+Modem PC Card CARDTEST.EXE is an MS/DOS program that verifies if the basic functions and components of the Ethernet+Modem PC Card work correctly. Since CARDTEST.EXE accesses hardware directly, you should only run this program in a native MS/DOS environment (with or without the Card Services). It is not recommended to run this program in a DOS box in the Microsoft Windows or IBM OS/2 environment. Command line options: CARDTEST /? Displays command line options and the supported values for each option. CARDTEST [/Q:x] [/I:yyy] [/C:c] [/S:z] /Q:x : The IRQ number for the Ethernet (LAN) device. x = 2, 3, 4, , 9, 10, 11, 12, 15 If not specified, CARDTEST will assign an IRQ number. /I:yyy : The base I/O address for the Ethernet (LAN) device. yyy = , 320, 340, 360 If not specified, CARDTEST will assign a free range of I/O addresses. /C:c : The COM port (COM1, COM2, COM3, COM4) for the modem device. c = 1, 2, 3, 4 If not specified, CARDTEST will assign a free COM port. /S:z : PCMCIA Slot No. x = 0, 1... If not specified, CARDTEST will detect the slot number. CARDTEST.EXE conducts the following tests: . Configuration Test Verifies if an Ethernet+Modem PC Card is in the PCMCIA slot and if the IRQ and I/O resources can be obtained successfully to conduct the subsequent tests. . I/O Test (for the Ethernet function) Verifies if the default Ethernet I/O base address (0x300) or the Ethernet I/O base address specified on the command line works correctly. If this test fails, more than likely the I/O address is occupied by another device. In this case please change the I/O base address by using the [/I] option on the command line. Then execute CARDTEST.EXE again. . COM PORT Test Verifies if the default modem COM port (COM3) or the COM port specified on the command line works correctly. If this test fails, more than likely it is because the COM port is occupied by another device in the system. In this case please change the COM port by using the [/C] option on the command line. Then execute CARDTEST.EXE again. . PC Card RAM Test Verifies if the RAM (Random Access Memory) component on the PC Card is free of errors. . Ethernet Node ID Test Verifies if the Ethernet Node ID is in correct format. . Ethernet Internal Loopback Test Conducts Ethernet internal loopback test. . Ethernet External Loopback Test Conducts Ethernet external loopback test. To pass this test you must connect the PC Card to an Ethernet network. That is, you must connect the card to an Ethernet Hub with a TP (twisted pair) cable. . Interrupt Test Verifies if the default Ethernet Interrupt (IRQ) value (5) or the IRQ value specified on the command line works correctly. If this test fails, more than likely the IRQ is occupied by another device in the system. In this case please change the IRQ value by using the [/Q] option on the command line. Then execute CARDTEST.EXE again. . Network Function Test Broadcasts traffic on the Ethernet network to verify if the PC Card can send network data correctly with the specified IRQ and I/O values. The number of packets transmitted is displayed in the "Tx Count" field. To conduct this test you must connect the PC Card to a Ethernet network. That is, you must connect the card to a Ethernet Hub with a TP (twisted pair) cable. You can use the [F2] key to start or to stop the test. To verify the network receive function, you can execute the Network Function Test on a second notebook computer over the same network. When CARDTEST.EXE receives the network packets broadcast by the second notebook, the number of packets received is displayed in the "Rx Count" field on the screen. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Trademarks or brand names mentioned are trademarks or registered trademarks of their respective companies.Download Driver Pack
