Packet Driver Installation For Ethernet+Modem PC Card The packet driver PCMPD.COM supports both the Ethernet LAN and Modem functions on the Ethernet+Modem PC Card. PCMPD command line syntax: PCMPD [options] <PD_INT_NO> [LAN_IRQ] [LAN_IO_BASE] [COMPORT] where [options] are: [-d] The "-d" option does not start the LAN function until this driver is first called by upper layer programs. [-n] Your NOVELL server uses NOVELL ISO-like packets. Your NOVELL workstation uses NOVELL 8137 packets. You can use this option to convert NOVELL 8137 packets into NOVELL ISO-like packets. [-u] Unloads the Packet Driver. [-h] Displays the on-line help. <PD_INT_NO> Specifies the software interrupt used to load the packet driver. This value must be specified, and it must be in one of the following ranges: 0x60-0x66 0x68-0x6f 0x78-0x7e 0x67 is the EMS interrupt, and 0x70 through 0x77 are used by the second 8259 interrupt controller. These values are thus not usable. Please note the 0x in front of the value is used to indicate a hexadecimal number. [LAN_IRQ] Specifies the interrupt (IRQ) for the LAN function. All legal IRQ values are supported. If Card Service is installed in the system, PCMPD will check with the Card Service to see if the IRQ you select is free. If it is, PCMPD will use this IRQ. If it is not free, PCMPD will ask the Card Service to assign an available IRQ and use that IRQ instead of the one you choose. If the Card Service is not installed, PCMPD will try to use the IRQ you select regardless whether it is free. In case the IRQ is not free, PCMPD will not come up, or the system may hang. If the Card Service is installed in the system, it is recommended that you do not specify the LAN_IRQ value and let PCMPD assign one for you. If the Card Service in not installed, please make sure the IRQ you assign, or the default value (5), is not used by another device in the system. [LAN_IO_BASE] Specifies the base I/O address for the LAN function. The supported values are: 0x300 (Default value) 0x320 0x340 0x360 The comment about LAN_IRQ assignment also applies to the LAN_IO_BASE parameter. If the Card Service is installed in the system, it is recommended that you do not specify the LAN_IO_BASE value and let PCMPD assign one for you. If the Card Service in not installed, please make sure the I/O Base you assign, or the default value (0x300), is not used by another device in the system. [COMPORT] Specifies the COM port (COM2, COM3, COM4) for the modem function. The supported values are: 2 (for COM2) 3 (for COM3, default value) 4 (for COM4) The comment about LAN_IRQ assignment also applies to the COMPORT parameter. If the Card Service is installed in the system, it is recommended that you do not specify the COMPORT value and let PCMPD assign one for you. If the Card Service in not installed, please make sure the COM port you assign, or the default value (3, for COM3), is not used by another device in the system. Usage examples: 1) The following command loads the Packet Driver at software interrupt 0x60 (hexadecimal). PCMPD 0x60 2) Assuming no Card Service is installed, the next command loads the Packet Driver at software interrupt 60h, LAN hardware interrupt 12, LAN I/O base address 0x320, and modem COM port 4 (COM4). PCMPD 0x60 12 0x320 4 Please note when you specify the COM port parameter, you must also specify the three parameters in front of it on the command line. 3) The next command line unloads a previously loaded packet driver. PCMPD -u Notes: After successfully executing PCMPD.COM, both the LAN and modem functions are enabled. The command displays the Ethernet I/O port and IRQ (interrupt) values used by the LAN function. It also displays the COM port (e.g. COM2, COM3, and COM4) in use. Please use this COM port to configure your modem communication software. A sample message displayed after executing PCMPD.COM is shown as follows: Packet driver software interrupt is 0x60 COM3 Port: 0x3E8 IRQ 4 I/O Port: 0x300 Interrupt Number: 11 (0xB) Window Memory Address Segment: 0xD000 My Ethernet Address is 00:00:E8:01:01:58 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Trademarks or brand names mentioned are trademarks or registered trademarks of their respective companies.Download Driver Pack
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.
