DGE-530T Gigabit Ethernet Adapter Card
1
Introduction
Thank you for choosing the D-Link DGE-530T, the value leader among Gigabit adapters for PCI
Bus personal computers. This introduction gives a general description of the newer networking
technologies found on the DGE-530T.
The DGE-530T provides the bandwidth capability to support high-end servers and workstations.
With Auto-negotiation, this card can run on three different speeds: 10Mbps at half and full
duplex, 100Mbps at half and full duplex, and 1000Mbps at full duplex. When running at
1000Mbps, it provides a network throughput of 2Gbps in full-duplex mode.
The DGE-530T provides IEEE 802.3x Flow Control Enhancements, which are needed for a
network adapter to function with a switch. In full-duplex mode, the MAC implements the PAUSE
control function. This means when a switch is connected in full-duplex mode and it senses that
its buffer will overflow in the near future, the switch will transmit one standard Ethernet packet
that causes the DGE-530T to pause for a period, thus avoiding internal buffer overflow and
packet loss.
The NIC enables simple, scalable network migration, providing the benefits of Gigabit Ethernet
networking with the familiarity of Ethernet.

Installation
Unpack and Inspect
CAUTION:
Under ordinary circumstances, a DGE-530T card will not be affected by a static charge that may be
received through your body during handling of the unit. In special circumstances, the user may carry
an extraordinarily high static charge and 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. Ensure that the following items are
included:
•
One DGE-530T Gigabit Ethernet Adapter Card
•
DGE-530T Drivers and Manual on CD-ROM
•
One Quick Installation Guide
If any of these items are missing or damaged, please contact your local reseller for replacement.
Installing the Adapter
1. Shut down the computer, unplug its power cord, and remove the chassis cover.
(Important: Opening the case of your computer may compromise the warranty of your computer.
Consult the computer manufacturer before opening the case to ensure that you adhere to
warranty guidelines. In some cases, you may need to have the DGE-530T installed by your
computer manufacturer.)
2. Insert the contact edge of the DGE-530T 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.
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-530T adapter.
NOTE: Due to a fault in some Plug-and-Play BIOS programs, occasionally a newly installed adapter is assigned an
Interrupt Number which has already been assigned to another device. In such a case, the conflict of the
Interrupt Number will cause faults in the behavior of both devices. Therefore, the user must run the CMOS
Setup utility, and manually assign a non-conflicting Interrupt Number.
Connecting the Network Cable
1000BASE-T Gigabit Ethernet enables operation over the extensive installed base of legacy
Category 5 cabling systems and, by default, the Category 5 cabling systems currently being
installed.
It provides optimal full-duplex 1000Mb/s Ethernet service over Category 5e links as defined by
ANSI/TIA/EIA-568-A-5. Topology rules for 1000BASE-T are the same as those used for
100BASE-T. Category 5 and 5e link lengths are limited to 100 meters.

Advanced Features
Wake On LAN
This Wake-on-LAN function can wake up the system from the sleeping mode to the fully powered
mode over the network immediately and automatically. Once the system is awake, it can be
directed to run management utilities. This function increases end-user productivity by avoiding
disruptions during working hours.
QoS
The QoS function allows the DGE-530T to transmit and receive tagged frames, such as 802.1p
priority tagged frames and 802.1Q VLAN tagged frames. In order for QoS to function on the DGE530T, it must be connected to a switch that supports and is configured for QoS. These priority
tagged frames will let real-time programs optimally utilize the network bandwidth. High priority
packets will be processed before low priority packets.
NOTE: To implement QoS on the DGE-530T, it must be connected to a
switch or other device that supports and is configured for 802.1p QoS.
Jumbo Frames
Jumbo Frames are Ethernet frames that are larger than 1518 bytes. Jumbo frames may be used
to reduce server CPU utilization and improve wire efficiency.
By implementing extra data in fewer packets, jumbo frames can increase throughput and
decrease CPU utilization. However, additional latency may be introduced.
End-to-end network hardware must support this capability or these packets will be dropped.
Consult your network administrator or switch manual for more information concerning
configuring and understanding Jumbo Frames.
•
Supported protocols are limited to IP (TCP, UDP).
•
Jumbo frames require compatible switch connections that forward jumbo frames.
Contact your switch vendor or manual for additional information.
•
There is no benefit to configure jumbo frames if standard size Ethernet frames (64
to1518 bytes) are used.
•
Jumbo frames may be simultaneously used with VLANs.
NOTE: Jumbo frames settings on a switch must be set to 8 bytes or larger
than the adapter settings for Windows operating systems, and at least 22
bytes larger for all other operating systems.
