1.  The PCI Network Adapters Testing Program - DIAG.EXE

The 32-Bit PCI Ethernet driver disk includes a network testing program
called DIAG. Run this program to check if your adapter is properly
installed. The DIAG program works for the 32-bit 10/100M(-NWAY) PCI
Fast Ethernet Adapter.

This DIAG program performs the following tests on your adapter :

		 a.  Configuration Test
		 b.  I/O Test
		 c.  ID Test
		 d.  Internal Loopback Test
		 e.  External Loopback Test
		 f.  Interrupt Test
		 g.  Network Function Test


2.   Test Requirements

To run DIAG, you need at least two workstations, each with an installed
PCI Fast Ethernet or 32-Bit PCI Ethernet Adapter.  You should run the
program in both workstations, one after the other.  If you want to test
100Mbps Fast Ethernet operation, you must have at least two workstations
each with an installed 32-bit PCI Series (Fast) Ethernet Adapter.

3.   Running the DIAG Program

Insert the 32-bit PCI Series (Fast) Ethernet driver
Diskette into your floppy drive (A:\), and type:

	 A:\> DIAG  <Enter>

3.0. Each time when you enter the DIAG program, it will find all 32-bit PCI
     Series (Fast) Ethernet adapters on your PC.  If your PC does not support
     the PCI BIOS, or there is no 32-bit PCI Series (Fast) Ethernet adapter on
     your PC, DIAG will show you an error message.  Otherwise it will display
     information on all 32-bit PCI Series (Fast) Ethernet adapters on your PCI
     machine.  Each  adapter's information includes adapter no., Ethernet
     address, IRQ used, I/O port used, and a predefined media type (AUTO or
     Auto-Negotiation, means media-type AUTO-sensing).	You can use the UP and
     DOWN arrow keys to select the adapter for testing, or use the RIGHT and
     LEFT arrow keys to select the media-type. The 32-bit PCI Series (Fast)
     Ethernet adapter supports five media-types as follows:


	  1. Auto Negotiation
	  2. Twisted Pair 10Mbps
	  3. Twisted Pair 100Mbps
	  4. Twisted Pair 10Mbps in full-duplex mode
	  5. Twisted Pair 100Mbps in full-duplex mode

     Press <ENTER> to confirm the selected adapter and enter the test procedure,
     or press ESC to exit the DIAG program.


3.1. The screen will display the status of each test.  After you select an
     adapter, the Testing Report showing the results of each test conducted
     appears on your screen.  The test results are indicated by a "PASS" or
     "FAIL" remark.

The screen display on your monitor is like Figure 1.

   Figure 1 - 32-bit PCI Series (Fast) Ethernet Adapter Test Screen

3.2. This screen presents you with a Testing Report to indicate the results of
     each test conducted.  The test results are indicated by a "PASS" or "FAIL"
     remark.


There are three functional keys which can be used when running the DIAG.EXE
Program.  They are:

	<F1>	To reset all counters which report the real
		network status.

	<F2>	To toggle the network function test ON or OFF.
		A toggle switch is provided to turn the network function
		test on and off.

	<ESC>	To terminate and return to the Adapter-Selection Screen.


The real network status reports on the DIAG.EXE program including
TX count, RX count, CRC errors and ALG errors are shown on the
Test Screen.  Also the accumulated program run time and the performance are
displayed on the Test Screen.


When you press the <F2> key once, the network function test will become the "ON"
Condition; that is, TX count is going to increase quickly (in a single station).
If more than one station is running DIAG with network function test "ON" on your
network system (multiple stations), then RX count will also increase quickly to
reflect the real network traffic.

When any of the diagnosis tests results in a "FAIL" remark, your screen
will state the possible causes of the malfunction and offer some advice on
solving the problem.

4.   Test Fail Messages
