Important Information
Please read the information below before installing the D-Link Gigabit Ethernet 1000BASE-SX(LC) PCIExpress X4 Adapter on your system.
What’s New
The latest generation PCI (Peripheral Component Interconnect) bus architecture called PCI Express, uses a 2.5GHz serial Input/Output structure for higher bandwidth and better scalability than its previous architectures. The
DGE-560SX 1000BASE-SX (LC) PCI-Express x4 supports up to 2 Gbps total bidirectional throughput. The
faster serial-bus architecture provides bidirectional dedicated Input/Output with 2.5-GHz clocking, compared to
133-MHz parallel bus of the previous generation PCI-Expanded (PCI-X).

•
In addition to these system requirements, the optical network interface requires a 850nm LC Fiber
Optical connector
Hardware Driver Compatability
To ensure optimal performance, it is recommended that you download the latest hardware drivers for all your
particular adapters from the manufacturer's web site.
It is recommended that you install the latest Service Packs and/or Hot Fixes from Microsoft prior to installing

Installation
Follow the instructions in this section to install the adapter.
Unpack and Inspect
Caution: Under ordinary circumstances, a DGE-560SX card will not be affected
by static charge. In some circumstances where you may carry an extraordinarily
high static charge, it is good practice to reduce the charge by touching a ground
before handling the adapter card.
Open the shipping carton and carefully remove all items. Make sure you have the following items:
•
One DGE-560SX 1000BASE-SX(LC) PCI-E x4 Adapter Card
•
CD-ROM containing system drivers, and Quick Installation Guide
Software Installation
To install the driver, insert the CD-ROM in the CD-ROM drive of the system with the installed adapter. Click
the Install link and follow the instructions that appear to install the driver.

Connecting the Network Cable
The DGE-560SX 1000Base-SX Gigabit Ethernet network adapter card enables operation over 850nm 62.5/125
fiber optic cable up to 75 meters and 850nm 50/125 fiber optic cable up to 550 meters. The network adapter card
connects to fiber optic cabling equipped with an LC Fiber Optical connector.
Installing the Adapter
1.
Shut down the computer, unplug its power cord, and remove the chassis cover.
2.
Insert the contact edge of the DGE-560SX card into the connector of an available PCI-Express (x4 or higher)
Bus expansion slot. Press the card firmly into the connector such that the card’s contacts are fully seated in
the PCI connector.
3.
Install the bracket screw that secures the card to the computer chassis.
4.
Replace the computer’s chassis cover.
5.
Reconnect the computer’s power cord, and 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 DGE-560SX adapter.
D-Link Network Control Program
