** ** ** VIA Rhine Family Fast Ethernet Adapter ** ** Packet Driver for DOS Workstations ** ** v4.05 Apr, 2002 ** ** Introduction: ============= The Packet Driver for DOS workstations confirms to the PC/TCP version 1.09 Packet driver specification. This document shows you how to setup the driver and how to use the enhanced functions by setting the custom keywords in configuration file. Contents of the Subdirectory: ============================= FETPKT.COM The Packet driver for DOS workstations. PACKET.TXT This file. Installation: ============= Before starting with the installation process, make sure that the adapter is properly installed and configured. You can use the diagnostic program (A:\SETUP.EXE) to make sure your connection with the network is correct. Installation Packet Driver: --------------------------------------------------------- 1) Copy the Packet driver to your HardDisk, suppose you copy it to C:\PACKET directory. EX: copy a:\packet\fetpkt.com c:\packet\fetpkt.com 2) Add the following line to C:\AUTOEXEC.BAT C:\PACKET\FETPKT -n 0x60 Configuration Files: ==================== Sample of configuration file: ----------------------------- (Suppose PACKET driver is copied to C:\PACKET directory) File Name: C:\AUTOEXEC.BAT ---------- C:\PACKET\FETPKT -n -w 0x60 0x60 is software vector number this driver uses. -n means Novell packets can be transmitted across this driver -w means Window compatible. if you want to link to N-way Device and use auto mode, you can add parameter as follow: C:\PACKET\FETPKT -a -n0x60 if you want to force assigning linespeed equal 100Mbs or 10Mbs,halfduplex or fullduplex, you can add parameter as follow: C:\PACKET\FETPKT -s100 -f -n 0x60 (speed=100Mbs fullduplex) C:\PACKET\FETPKT -s10 -h -n 0x60 (speed=10Mbs halfduplex) (suggest use CONNECTIONTYPE instead of this keyword) if you want to force assigning pci slot number you can add parameter as follow: C:\PACKET\FETPKT -l10 -n 0x60 (pci slot number=10) if you want to set up your connection type, you can add parameter as follow: C:\PACKET\FETPKT -connectiontype=autosense 0x60 (Auto mode, default value) C:\PACKET\FETPKT -connectiontype=10baset 0x60 (speed=10Mbs, halfduplex) C:\PACKET\FETPKT -connectiontype=10basetfd 0x60 (speed=10Mbs, fullduplex) C:\PACKET\FETPKT -connectiontype=100basetx 0x60 (speed=100Mbs, halfduplex) C:\PACKET\FETPKT -connectiontype=100basetxfd 0x60 (speed=100Mbs, fullduplex) if you want to set up your flow control ability, you can add parameter as follow: C:\PACKET\FETPKT -flow_control=hardware_default 0x60 (use hardware value, default) C:\PACKET\FETPKT -flow_control=enable 0x60 (enable flow control) C:\PACKET\FETPKT -flow_control=disable 0x60 (disable flow control)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.
