                      ACCTON EN1208 Setup Program
                    for PCI Ethernet Adapter Series


The SETUP.EXE program is used for the following LAN adapter:

                Accton EN1208 PCI Ethernet Adapter

This subdirectory includes the following files:

README.TXT        This File
SETUP.EXE         Hardware configuration and diagnostics program

The SETUP program is used to set the adapter's configuration and
diagnose the adapter's hardware.


*   Conflict with Microsoft EMM386   *

The PCI adapter can only function with the EMM386.exe memory manager
program version 4.49 or later.  You can verify its version number by
entering EMM386 at the DOS Prompt.

Do not specify the "HIGHSCAN" option with the EMM386.exe statement in
your config.sys file or your system will hang.

If you run MEMMAKER and select Custom Setup, do not specify
"Aggressively scan upper memory", or it will automatically insert the
HIGHSCAN flag into the EMM386 command line.  This parameter cannot be
removed once it's installed, doing so will cause the extended memory
manager to malfunction.

Starting the Program

A. From DOS, type the following indicating the directory or
   drive location of the SETUP.EXE program. Then press  <Enter>:

   A:\>SETUP      <Enter>

B. Identify your adapter. Use the up/down arrow keys to highlight
   the appropriate adapter name.

If there is more than one adapter installed inside the host PC,
the Hardware Configuration module will prompt you to specify
the card you want to configure.  In the meantime, PCI BIOS will
automatically resolve the I/O base or IRQ conflict, then assign
the available I/O base or IRQ for the adapter.

C. SETUP has following functions to set the adapter's configuration
   and diagnose the adapter's hardware.

                    View Current Configuration
                    Set Up New Configuration
                    Run EEPROM Test
                    Run Diagnostic On Board
                    Run Diagnostic On Network
                    Exit SETUP

View Current Configuration

1. Use the up/down arrow keys to select the "VIEW CURRENT CONFIGURATION"
   option and press <Enter> to view the current adapter's configuration

2. This function displays its configuration to include
   the following items:

   *  Ethernet Address
   *  Medium Type (AUTO DETECT, AUI)
   *  Full-Duplex
   *  I/O Base Address
   *  Interrupt
   *  Boot ROM Size

3. Press SPACE BAR key or ESC key to return to the main menu.

Set Up New Configuration

1. Choose "SET UP NEW CONFIGURATION" by highlighting the option using
   the up/down arrow keys.  Then press <Enter> to continue and set the
   adapter's configuration manually.

2. This function displays the following items that can be set 
   to a different value:

   *  Medium Type (AUTO DETECT, AUI)
   *  Full-Duplex
   *  Boot ROM Size

3. If any item is changed,  Press ESC key and the
   ENTER key to update the value of item.

4. If there are no changes for any item, press the ESC key to
   return to the main menu.


1. Choose "RUN EEPROM TEST" by highlighting the option using the up/down
   arrow keys. Then press <Enter> to test the adapter's On-Board EEPROM.

2. The program will run READ tests on each register in the EEPROM.

Run Diagnostic On Board

1. Choose the "RUN DIAGNOSTIC ON BOARD" option to test the adapter's
   components and its installation and then press <Enter> to continue.

2. The program will run the following tests:

           *     Configuration test
           *     I/O Registers test
           *     Internal loopback test
           *     External loopback test
           *     RAM test

3. This test monitors the adapter and corresponding cabling system.
   However, it does not test the network's condition.

   The screen displays the PASSED or FAILED count for each test.
   If a test fails, press the space bar to display the reason for
   failure and possible solutions.

4. The adapter test checks the following items ---

   *   Configuration Test checks the initial status of the
       Ethernet Controller
   *   I/O Registers Test checks I/O accessibility
   *   Internal Loopback Test checks adapter's controller
   *   External Loopback Test checks the network link
   *   RAM Test checks the condition of on-board RAM

Run Diagnostic On Network

1. Choose "RUN DIAGNOSTIC ON NETWORK" by highlighting the option
   using the up/down arrow keys. Then press <Enter> to continue.

2. The program will thoroughly verify your adapter's ability to
   communicate with another device on the network.

3. Set up at least one computer as a Responder and at least one
   as an Initiator.

4. The Responder displays the status of communications with
   each Initiator on the network.

5. The Initiator displays the current Responder and the status
   of corresponding communications.


Choose "EXIT SETUP" option to leave the [SETUP] program and return to DOS.
