When I called they claimed that they couldn’t reveal what the hardware problem was, but that the fix was available from them. The software interrupt to use is usually specified on the command line when the packet driver is loaded. Too brain-damaged to use. It should be about the same speed as the same bus width WD80x3, Unless you are a light user, spend the extra money and get the 16 bit model, as the price difference isn’t significant. A device manufacturer needed to provide a packet driver, which was a small TSR that provided the API in the form of software interrupts. But if you enable networking you get the following advantages:. This is not true.

Any other use of the Software, including but not limited to use with non-Intel component products, is not licensed hereunder. Another way to look at it is that your networking software never really talks directly to the networking hardware. If you use it, let Donald know how things work out, as not too many people have this card and feedback has been low.

This is a driver that was written by Craig Southeren geoffw extro. Again, see the above info.

This is usually in lieu of transferring the 12140 over a computer network. It is a basic design, much like a NE In this case, auto-irq is used, and if that fails, the driver silently assings IRQ 5.


DEC 10/Base-T, NDIS

doz Claims arising under this Agreement shall be governed by the laws of the State of California, without regard to principles of conflict of laws. I have not experienced one but I have read in many places that if you find a 3Com 3C based adapter that you should burn it and bury it.

You may transfer the Software only if the recipient agrees to be fully bound by these terms and if dls retain no copies of the Software. Technical information is available in Programming the Intel chips.

Intel® Ethernet Adapter Drivers for MS-DOS*

There is more information including using the driver as a loadable module at the top of the driver file ewrk3. I haven’t checked it out myself yet. The driver is in the standard release of the kernel, as an alpha driver. Bonus points here for using a standardized power connector instead of a proprietary one. Available surplus pacoet many places.

See the information on the DE in DE When I called they claimed that they couldn’t reveal what the hardware problem was, but that the fix was available from them. Here are some places to look for a packet driver for a specific Ethernet device. The 8 bit is slightly less expensive, but only worth the savings for light use. Did you find the information on this site useful?

DOS TCP/IP Networking with Packet Drivers

A packet driver makes the hardware and network accessible in an easy manner. For this, it is essential that the manufacturer will release the technical programming information to the general public without you or anyone having to sign your life away.


Here is my set of criteria:. There are information files contained in the standard kernel for setting jumpers and general hints. It assumes a specific data transfer port number, which is what was standard years ago. For machines without slots or where you want a temporary solution I would use a parallel-port to Ethernet adapter. Note that the device name that you pass to ifconfig is not eth0 but atp0 for this device.

Vendor/Manufacturer/Model Specific Information

Those enhancements were made to improve the speeds of connected devices, but they would help data transfer of any type. Note — The dnet driver supports cards based on the DEC and chips. Don’t be afraid to read it. Hopefully this is now fixed.

The shared memory size can be set to 2kB, 32kB or 64kB, but only 2 and 32 have been tested with this driver. Yankee Peising unreliable, his remains mammograms protruding dec dos packet driver synchronously.
