I NTRODUCTION
Thank you for choosing the 10/100/1000Mbps Gigabit Ethernet Card
for 32-bit PCI Bus-equipped personal computers. The 32-bit PCI
10/100/1000Mbps Gigabit Ethernet Card is ideal for speeding up data
transfers for network servers and other computers, such as those used
for video-conferencing, that send and/or receive large amounts of data.
The 32-bit PCI 10/100/1000Mbps Gigabit Ethernet Card also includes
the newest networking technologies, such as multicasting support, that
use network bandwidth more efficiently and further help the card
maximize data throughput.

Gigabit Ethernet Technology
Gigabit Ethernet is an extension of IEEE 802.3 Ethernet utilizing the
same packet structure, format, and support for CSMA/CD protocol,
full duplex, and management objects, but with a tenfold increase in
theoretical throughput over 100Mbps Fast Ethernet and a one
hundred-fold increase over 10Mbps Ethernet. Since it is compatible
with all 10Mbps and 100Mbps Ethernet environments, Gigabit
Ethernet provides a straightforward upgrade without wasting a
company’s existing investment in hardware, software, and trained
personnel.
The increased speed and extra bandwidth offered by Gigabit Ethernet
is essential to coping with the network bottlenecks that frequently
develop as computers and their busses get faster and more users use
applications that generate more traffic. Upgrading key components,
such as your backbone and servers to Gigabit Ethernet can greatly
improve network response times as well as significantly speed up the
traffic between your subnets.
Gigabit Ethernet enables Twisted-Pair cable connections to support
video conferencing, complex imaging, and similar data-intensive
applications. Likewise, since data transfers occur 10 times faster than
Fast Ethernet, servers outfitted with Gigabit Ethernet NIC’s are able to
perform 10 times the number of operations in the same amount of time.
Fast Ethernet Technology
The growing importance of LANs and the increasing complexity of
desktop computing applications are fueling the need for high
performance networks. A number of high-speed LAN technologies
2
have been proposed to provide greater bandwidth and improve
client/server response times.
Among them, 100BASE-T (Fast
Ethernet) provides a non-disruptive, smooth evolution from the
current 10BASE-T technology. The non-disruptive and smooth
evolution nature, and the dominating potential market base, virtually
guarantee cost effective and high performance Fast Ethernet solutions
in the years to come.
100Mbps Fast Ethernet is a new standard specified by the IEEE 802.3
LAN committee. It is an extension of the 10Mbps Ethernet standard
with the ability to transmit and receive data at 100Mbps, while
maintaining the CSMA/CD Ethernet protocol. Since the 100Mbps
Fast Ethernet is compatible with all other 10Mbps Ethernet
environments, it provides a straightforward upgrade and takes
advantage of the existing investment in hardware, software, and
personnel training.

U NPACKING AND I NSTALLATION
This chapter provides unpacking and installation information for the
32-bit PCI 10/100/1000Mbps Gigabit Ethernet Card.
Unpacking
CAUTION: Under ordinary circumstances, the 32-bit PCI 10/100/1000Mbps NWay
Gigabit Ethernet Card will not be affected by static charge as may be
received through your body during handling of the unit. However, there
are special circumstances where you may carry an extraordinarily high
static charge, and possibly damage the card and/or your computer. It is
good practice to eliminate all static electricity by touching a ground (an
unpainted metal area of your computer chassis, for example) before
performing any installations.
Open the shipping carton and carefully remove all items. In
addition to this User's Guide, ascertain that you have:
One 32-bit PCI 10/100/1000Mbps Gigabit Ethernet Card.
One Driver Diskette
This User’s Guide
Warranty
If any item is found missing or damaged, please contact your local
reseller for replacement.

Installing the Gigabit Ethernet Card
1. Shut down the computer, unplugs its power cord, and remove the
chassis cover.
2. Insert the contact edge of the Gigabit Ethernet card into the
connector of any available PCI Bus Master expansion slot.
Press the card firmly into the connector such that the card’s
contacts are fully seated in the connector, this card can put
either in 32-bit or 64-bit PCI slot, but it is recommended that
the card to put in the 64-bit PCI slot to have the maximum
performance.
3. Install the bracket screw and secure the card to the computer chassis.
4. Cover the computer’s chassis.
5. Switch computer power on. If the BIOS section of your computer’s
boot program is Plug-and-Play compliant, then at power-up the
BIOS will automatically configure any newly installed the Gigabit
Ethernet Card.
NOTE: Due to a fault in some Plug-n-Play BIOS programs, it happens occasionally
that a newly installed adapter is assigned an Interrupt Number which is
already assigned to another device. In such a case, the conflict of Interrupt
Number will cause faults in the behavior of both devices. Then it is necessary
to run the CMOS Setup utility, and manually assign a non-conflicting Interrupt
Number.
6
Connecting the Network Cable
Four pair of Cat.5 UTP or STP cable with RJ-45 connector is required
for the 32-bit PCI 10/100/1000Mbps Gigabit Ethernet Card. You can
use standard or crossover cable to connect the switch MDI-X or MDIII port, because the 32-bit PCI 10/100/1000Mbps Gigabit Ethernet
Card will adjust the correct signal automatically.
Software Installation
Before you connect the 32-bit PCI 10/100/1000Mbps Gigabit Ethernet
Card to the network, you have to install the network driver first. The
driver for each networking operating system is under a separate
directory (D:\DRIVER\A02-SG32(Realtek)\S.O.). A HELP.COM file
under root directory lists the information and detailed installation
procedure of all the available drivers.
