    NDIS Driver Installation on Windows for Workgroups 3.11
    -------------------------------------------------------

    1. Run Windows by typing WIN from the DOS prompt.
    2. Click the "Network" icon in the Main Program
       Group.
    3. Click the "Network Setup" icon from the Network window.
    4. Select "Drivers" item from the Network Setup dialog box.
    5. Select "Add Adapters" item in the Option dialog box.
    6. Select "Unlisted or Updated Network Adapter" when the
       Install driver field appears.
    7. Type destination drive (A: or B:) in your PC
    8. Insert the 32-bit PCI Series (Fast) Ethernet Driver Diskette in your floppy drive
       and press <Enter> to start the installation process.

    9. When the "32-bit PCI Series (Fast) Ethernet Adapter Driver"
       dialog box appear.  Select the installed adapter & driver from the
       following options:

		 10/100M (-NWAY) PCI LAN Adapter NDIS 2/3 driver

    10.Follow screen instructions to complete the process.

    11.Restart your computer.


B) Setup Real Mode (NDIS 2) Driver Parameters on WFW311

    There are 4 parameters can be set in driver installation & reconfiguration

    1. Slot number: the PCI board index, range is 1..16, default is 1.
		    This parameter is used to distinguish activated board
		    when multiple 32-BIT PCI LAN boards are enabled by the
		    driver.

    2. Sia Mode:    the connection type of the LAN board,
		    can be selected from TP, BNC, TP_FULL_DUPLEX
		    and AUTODETECT, default is AUTODETECT.

    3. Data Rate:   for 10/100M PCI LAN board only.

		    MB10 : speed is 10 Mbps,
		    MB100: speed is 100 Mbps.

    4. Tx FIFO threshold: transmit FIFO threshold level

		    LW128 : threshold is  128 bytes (100Mbps),	72 bytes (10Mbps),
		    LW256 : threshold is  256 bytes (100Mbps),	96 bytes (10Mbps),
		    LW512 : threshold is  512 bytes (100Mbps), 128 bytes (10Mbps),
		    LW1024: threshold is 1024 bytes (100Mbps), 160 bytes (10Mbps),

		    FP	  : Disable early transmit.

       @ECHO OFF
       PROMPT $p$g
       PATH C:\WINDOWS;
       SET TEMP=C:\WINDOWS\TEMP


C) Setup Protect Mode (NDIS 3) Driver Parameters on WFW311

    There are 6 parameters can be set in driver installation & reconfiguration

    1. Burst Length : the PCI bus busrt length, validate data are
		      1 dword, 2 dwords, 4 dwords, 8 dwords, 16 dwords,
		      32 dwords.
		      default value is 16 dwords (1 dword = 4 bytes)

    2. PCI Mechanism: the PCI configuration space access mechanism, validate
		      data are AutoDetect, Mechanism 1 and Mechanism 2,
		      default value is AutoDetect.
		      When AutoDetect is selected, driver would first use
		      Mechanism 2 to search LAN adapter, if the search failed,
		      i.e. no LAN adapter was found, Mechanism 1 should be
		      applied to the next search.

    3. Connection Type: default is Auto Detection.

       The connection types for 10M PCI board are

	Auto Detection			   ; perform automatically media
					   ; detection during driver
					   ; initialization.

	Twisted Pair			   ; RJ-45 connector.

	Twisted Pair - Full Duplex	   ; communication in full duplex mode,
					   ; speed is 20Mbps

	Twisted Pair - No Link Test	   ; support Hub which does not generate
					   ; link pulses

    The following two parameters is  used for 10/100 PCI board only.

	AutoSense			   ; perform automatically media
					   ; detection during driver
					   ; initialization.

	10 Mbps 			   ; RJ-45 connector, line speed is
					   ; 10 Mega bits per second.

	10 Mbps  Full_Duplex		   ; communication in full duplex mode,
					   ; speed is 20Mbps.

	100 Mbps			   ; RJ-45 connector, line speed is
					   ; 100 Mega bits per second.

	100 Mbps  Full_Duplex		   ; communication in full duplex mode,
					   ; speed is 200Mbps.

    4. Receive Buffers : the number of data buffers used for packet reception,
			 validate data are 8, 16, 32, 48 and 64,
			 default is 16.

    The following two parameters is  used for 10/100M (-NWAY) PCI board only.

    5. Store And Forward : Cut Through	     : Enable eraly transmit.
			   Store And Forward : Disable early transmit.
			   default is Store And Forward.

    6. Transmit Threshold : the transmit FIFO threshold level when Store and
			    Forward is disabled.

			     10Mbps:  72,  96, 128, 160   bytes
			    100Mbps: 128, 256, 512, 1024  bytes

			    default is 160 or 1024 bytes.

How To Update Drivers Manually

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.
