INTRODUCTION
The D-Link DFE-670TXD 10/100Mbps PC Card adapter is an ideal
way to connect your laptop computer to your LAN (Local Area
Network.) After completing the steps in the Quick Install Guide,
you will have the ability to share information and resources - such
as files and printers - and take full advantage of a “connected”
environment for work and play!
The DFE-670TXD comes with drivers for the most popular operating systems and can be integrated into a large network. You can
connect your laptop to a network when running Windows 98,
Windows ME, NT 4.0 or 2000.
The D-Link DFE-670TXD 10/100 Ethernet PC Card for notebook
PCs is a credit-card sized Ethernet / Fast-Ethernet adapter for connecting a notebook PC to an IEEE 802.3 or 802.3u Ethernet network. The notebook PC must be equipped with PCMCIA (16 bit)
extension bus and Type II PC Card slot(s) compliant.
NOTE: The terms "PC Card" is used throughout this manual to refer to those
objects as defined in the PCMCIA / PC Card standards published by Personal
Computer Memory Card Industry Association (PCMCIA). The term "slot" as used
in this manual is synonymous with "socket" where the standards use the latter
term in reference to the physical receptacles of a host notebook computer, for
insertion/connection of PC Cards. More information on the standards is available
from PCMCIA's www server at http://www.pc-card.com.
The DFE-670TXD automatically detects the parameters of its Ethernet
environment, and automatically negotiates and determines its own
speed and duplex settings as required for maximum performance within
the environment. (The autonegotiation function is effective only when
the DFE-670TXD is connected to the network by a device (switch or
hub) which also has autonegotiation functionality.)

INTRODUCTION continued
Inside its compact case, the D-Link DFE-670TXD holds an
Ethernet controller, network processing interface, a 68-pin PC Card
Standard front-end plug, which connects to the notebook PC, and a
direct port for connecting RJ-45. The DFE-670TXD requires no
pre-installation setup -- simply insert its front end into the notebook
PC's PC-Card slot.
The DFE-670TXD is supplied with an RJ-45 receptacle, which
receives the network cable. The direct port features full LED display for linkage and activity states, speed and duplex.

About Fast Ethernet
Fast Ethernet is a network technology specified by IEEE Standard
802.3u. It extends the traditional 10Mbps (10 megabit/sec)
Ethernet technology to achieve 100Mbps (100 megabit/sec) transmission and reception. Because Fast Ethernet retains the traditional Ethernet CSMA/CD (Carrier Sense, Multiple Access,
Collision Detect) protocol, it remains wholly compatible with
10Mbps Ethernet while providing a tenfold increase in network
capacity.
The Fast Ethernet standard specifies three subtypes, corresponding to three media types:
l
l
l
100Base-TX (using two twisted pairs in EIA 568 Category 5
UTP or STP cable)
100Base-T4 (using four twisted pairs in a Category 3,
Category 4, or Category 5 UTP cable)
100Base-FX (using two fiber-optic strands.)
The DFE-670TXD provides full-duplex and half-duplex 100BaseTX operation (in Category 5 twisted-pair cable environments). It
does not provide 100Base-T4 or 100Base-FX operation. To provide for traditional 10Mbps Ethernet operation in twisted-pair cable
environments, the DFE-670TXD also offers 10Mbps Ethernet operation, in full-duplex and half-duplex modes. The DFE-670TXD's
autonegotiation capability provides for automatic selection of the
best operation mode.

About Autonegotiation
The basic idea of auto-negotiation is similar to the familiar process
of making a dialup connection between two modems. When you
attempt a connection you have probably heard some gravellysounding exchanges between your local modem and a modem at
the other end of a telephone line. These annoying sounds let you
know that your modem and the remote modem are preparing for
your intended communication with the remote computer.
During those few seconds before you see the "connect" message
the modems are negotiating the best data communication scheme
which is supported by both modems, and which is suitable for the
quality of the telephone-line connection between them. The
parameters to be settled between the two modems include best
baud rate, compression method, and error correction method.
When the two modems have tested the phone-line quality and
have switched to the combination of parameters which will provide
the best data communication, then you are given the "connect”
message which signals the end of the inter-modem negotiation
and the beginning of your intended communication with the remote
computer.
Autonegotiation between devices within an Ethernet LAN is similar
in concept, but much briefer. The two devices involved in the
autonegotiation will be your DFE-670TXD and the switch or hub
through which it is connected into the LAN. (Switches ordinarily
provide for autonegotiation; traditional hubs do not.)
The parameters to be negotiated between the DFE-670TXD and
its supporting switch or hub include speed (100Mbps = Fast
Ethernet, or 10Mbps = traditional Ethernet) and duplex mode (halfduplex or full-duplex.)
2
About Autonegotiation continued
Startup communication between the two devices occurs when
both devices are operating, the cable connection between
them is good, and the connected notebook PC's network software is loaded. As soon as those conditions are satisfied,
the preparatory process of auto-negotiation between the
DFE-670TXD and its supporting device begins and proceeds
automatically.
If the supporting switch or hub has autonegotiation functionality, then it and the DFE-670TXD exchange a series of
messages in which each device signals its capabilities and
listens for corresponding information about the other. The
auto-negotiation process requires only a few milliseconds,
and the two devices select the best communication parameters supported by both devices.
If the supporting device does not have autonegotiation functionality, then its monotone (single capability) message will be
recognized by the DFE-670TXD's autonegotiation facility, and
the DFE-670TXD will simply switch to the one of its own
capabilities which matches that of the supporting device.
Once the auto-negotiation is completed, the line is ready, and
it will provide an optimal data channel between the DFE670TXD and the supporting device. The line will remain
ready without further auto-negotiation action until the link is
broken. Auto-negotiation then reoccurs at any time that the
link is restored, again making the line ready for optimal data
communications.

TROUBLESHOOTING
A network can be simple to install and maintain. However,
occasionally something might go wrong. The best approach to
troubleshooting network problems is to start at the very simplest
level and work your way up.
On the following pages we have covered many of the common
troubleshooting situations. Please read through these
pages or skip to the specific one that interests you.

TROUBLESHOOTING continued
Troubleshooting the Hardware Installation
If you experience any problems with the hardware installation,
first ascertain that all network cable connections are firm, that the
proper grade of cable is used for the network connection, and
that the cable makeup is correct (straight -- without un-needed
crossovers in the connector wiring.) Check that the supporting
hub is powered-on and operating normally, and that the hub is
properly qualified (under 10Base-T and/or 100Base-TX standards.)
Verify Each Computers Identification
If more than one computer on your network has the same
"Computer name," communications may be negatively affected.
Also, each computer must have the same "Workgroup" name to
communicate properly.
Verify Network Adapter Installation
If your Network Adapter were not installed, including the Network
System Software or Device drivers, your network will not function
properly. Use these steps to verify that your Network Adapter are
properly installed.
1.
2.
3.
Double-Click the "System" icon in the Control Panel.
Click the "Device Manager" tab on top of the "System
Properties" dialog box.
Double-Click "Network Adapters" if you do not see any
items branching out. You should see "D-Link DFE650TXD CardBus PC Card branching out after doubleClicking Network Adapters."
If you do not see any items branching out after double-clicking
"Network Adapters," your Network Adapter has not been properly
installed. Start at the beginning of the guide and follow these.

TROUBLE SHOOTING
continued
If you see symbols such as a yellow exclamation point or red "X"
over the icon adjacent to "D-Link DFE-670TXD PC Card," your
card is not installed properly or may have a problem. Doubleclick the on "D-Link DFE-670TXD PC Card" line and read the
explanation of the problem. This information will be helpful if you
require technical support from D-Link.
Verify Cable Connections
Check to see that the computer(s) you are troubleshooting are
properly connected. Each computer must be connected from its
DFE-670TXD with a Category 5 cable. Examine the network
cables and ensure that they have not been damaged by having
been walked-on, rolled over by chairs, or closed in doors.
Additionally, make note of and alleviate any possible electromagnetic interference that may be affecting your network.
Your network cables can be plugged into any port on your hub
except the "Uplink" port. The "Uplink" port is only used when
connecting your hub to another hub or switch.

TROUBLESHOOTING continued
Diagnostics and Checking Communications
Included on the CD-ROM is a "DFE-670TXD PCMCIA Adapter
Driver Program." It is a diagnostic program that will help you
determine if any faults exist in your DFE-670TXD Network
Adapters or connection.
1.
Restart your computer in MS-DOS mode. (Click "Start,"
then "Shut Down…," and finally select "Restart the
computer in MS-DOS mode.")
2.
Insert the CD-ROM labeled "DFE-670TXD PCMCIA
Ethernet Adapter Driver Program" into your CD-ROM D:\
3.
Type D:\DIAG.EXE at the MS-DOS prompt and press
"Enter" to start the D-Link PCMCIA Fast Ethernet Adapter
Diagnostic Program.
4.
Read and follow the instructions on the screen (Press F1
key anytime for additional help.)
5.
"Adapter Basic Diagnostic" will determine if any problems
exist with DFE-670TXD.
6.
"Network Diagnostic" will determine if problems exist with
your network or connections. To use "Network Diagnostic,"
please run program on both computers in MS-DOS Mode.
If you encounter any problems, please contact
D-Link technical support.

TROUBLESHOOTING continued
Pinging your DFE-670TXD Card
Follow these steps to Ping a device:
Ping is the acronym for Packet Internet Groper (PING), a utility to
determine if a specific IP address is accessible. It works by sending a packet to the specified address and waiting for a reply. Ping
is primarily used to troubleshoot Internet connections. By sending
out a ping, you are verifying that a specific computer is available.
Since all computers on the network must have a unique IP
address, getting a reply means that a computer is on the network
and can communicate. If you cannot ping another computer, then
there is probably a problem with the hardware. Check the cabling
and adapter installation. If you are unable to network, even when
you receive a reply to your ping, it is probably a software configuration issue. Verify that all the settings are correct.
1.
Start MS-DOS Prompt.
2.
Type in the following: ping:xxx.xxx.xx.xx, where
xxx.xxx.xx.xx is the IP address to be pinged (i.e.
192.168.0.1.) and hit the “enter” key. In this case,
computer A is pinging its own IP address.
A successful ping shows four replies.

TROUBLESHOOTING
HOW TO FREE AN IRQ
What to do if you don’t have an available IRQ
If there is not an available (open) IRQ on your system, you can
do the following:
The first thing you can do is let your Motherboard and Windows
do the work for you. For this option you will need to check that
you have a Plug and Play compatible Motherboard and set it to
reset the configuration.
Note: All of the setting names below may not be the exact wording on your system. This is due to the great number of
Motherboard and hardware manufacturers. The settings may be
listed on your system using different words that mean the same
thing. Refer to your motherboard manual or contact the manufacturer if you are unsure.
Perform the following steps to check for a Plug and Play
Motherboard and to reset the configuration.
1. Reboot your computer.
2. When your computer is going through its POST
(Power On Self Test) enter into your BIOS(Basic
Input/Output System).
3. Some BIOS’s have a setting that will let you
enable the Motherboard for Plug and Play. You
should look for a setting that says “Plug and
Play OS.” “Enable” this function.
4. The second setting to look for is under the
heading “PNP/PCI Configuration.” Under
this heading check to make sure that “Resources
Controlled By” is set to “Auto.”

5. The next setting below should be “Reset
Configuration” or “Reset ESSCD.” Set this to
“Enabled.”
Note: This is a one-time setting. Meaning after
you reboot your computer the setting will return to
“Disabled.” This setting allows Windows to reconfigure all of the configuration information for your
Plug and Play hardware. It is reset to “Disabled” so
that Windows will not perform the reconfiguration
each time you start your computer.
6. “Save” the new settings and Exit your BIOS. This
will allow your computer to boot up and load Windows.
7. After Windows loads, check in the Device Manager to
see if there is an available IRQ.

TROUBLESHOOTING
HOW TO FREE AN IRQ
If you do not have a Plug and Play Motherboard or you still
do not have a free IRQ
If you do not have a Plug and Play Motherboard or you still do not
have a free IRQ you might need to disable some unused
Hardware. For instance if you have a PS/2 or USB Mouse then
you might be able to disable your COM Ports.
Perform the following steps to disable your COM Ports.
1. Reboot your computer.
2. When your computer is going through its POST
(Power On Self Test) enter into your BIOS (Basic
Input/Output System).
3. Under the heading “Integrated Peripherals,” look for
“Serial Port 1 or 2” or “COM Port 1 or 2.”
4. Change the setting to “Disable.”
5. Go to the heading “PNP/PCI Configuration.”
6. Make sure the setting for “Resources Controlled
By” is set to “Auto.”
7. Change the setting for “Reset Configuration” to
“Enabled.”
8. Hit the “ESC” key and go to the heading “Save and
Exit.”
9. Let Windows load and follow the steps in “Checking

Other hardware that can be disabled
Other hardware that can be disabled on your system might be
what are referred to as “Built On.” If your Motherboard has a
“Built On” Modem and you have upgraded your Modem you might
want to see if it is disabled.
Perform the following steps to disable a “Built On” Modem.
1. Reboot your computer.
2. When your computer is going through its POST
(Power On Self Test) enter into your BIOS (Basic
Input/Output System).
3. Under the heading “Integrated Peripherals,” look for
a setting “Modem COM Port.”
4. Change the setting to “Disable.”
Note: Only disable your “Built On” Modem if you
know that you have upgraded your Modem, you
have had a Broadband connection (Cable/DSL)
installed, or if you do not use it to connect to the
Internet. Disabling the “Built On” Modem will make
it so it no longer functions, until reset to “Enabled.”
5. Go to the heading “PNP/PCI Configuration.”
6. Make sure the setting for “Resources Controlled
By” is set to “Auto.”

Other ideas for freeing up IRQs
If these steps do not free up an IRQ for you, you might need to
remove some unused hardware from your system. The above
steps can be followed to remove a “Built On” Sound Card as well.
Another option for freeing up an IRQ is switching your Mouse
either PS/2 or USB. This will free up the IRQs for your COM
Ports. You can then follow the above steps for disabling the
COM Ports in your BIOS.
Note: You might need to contact your computer manufacturer for
more information on freeing up an IRQ on your specific system.

LIMITED WARRANTY
D-Link Systems, Inc. ("D-Link") provides this limited warranty for its product only to the person or entity
who originally purchased the product from D-Link or its authorized reseller or distributor.
Limited Hardware Warranty: D-Link warrants that the hardware portion
of the D-Link products described below ("Hardware") will be free from
material defects in workmanship and materials from the date of original
retail purchase of the Hardware, for the period set forth below applicable
to the product type ("Warranty Period") if the Hardware is used and serviced in accordance with applicable documentation; provided that a completed Registration Card is returned to an Authorized D-Link Service
Office within ninety (90) days after the date of original retail purchase of
the Hardware. If a completed Registration Card is not received by an
authorized D-Link Service Office within such ninety (90) day period, then
the Warranty Period shall be ninety (90) days from the date of purchase.

Ninety (90) days
D-Link's sole obligation shall be to repair or replace the defective
Hardware at no charge to the original owner. Such repair or replacement
will be rendered by D-Link at an Authorized D-Link Service Office. The
replacement Hardware need not be new or of an identical make, model or
part; D-Link may in its discretion may replace the defective Hardware (or
any part thereof) with any reconditioned product that D-Link reasonably
determines is substantially equivalent (or superior) in all material respects
to the defective Hardware. The Warranty Period shall extend for an additional ninety (90) days after any repaired or replaced Hardware is delivered. If a material defect is incapable of correction, or if D-Link determines
in its sole discretion that it is
46
not practical to repair or replace the defective Hardware, the price paid by the original
purchaser for the defective Hardware will be refunded by D-Link upon return to D-Link of
the defective Hardware. All Hardware (or part thereof) that is replaced by D-Link, or for
which the purchase price is refunded, shall become the property of D-Link upon replacement or refund.
Limited Software Warranty: D-Link warrants that the software portion of the product
("Software") will substantially conform to D-Link's then current functional specifications for
the Software, as set forth in the applicable documentation, from the date of original delivery of the Software for a period of ninety (90) days ("Warranty Period"), if the Software is
properly installed on approved hardware and operated as contemplated in its documentation. D-Link further warrants that, during the Warranty Period, the magnetic media on
which D-Link delivers the Software will be free of physical defects. D-Link's sole obligation shall be to replace the non-conforming Software (or defective media) with software
that substantially conforms to D-Link's functional specifications for the Software. Except
as otherwise agreed by D-Link in writing, the replacement Software is provided only to the
original licensee, and is subject to the terms and conditions of the license granted by DLink for the Software. The Warranty Period shall extend for an additional ninety (90) days
after any replacement Software is delivered. If a material non-conformance is incapable
of correction, or if D-Link determines in its sole discretion that it is not practical to replace
the non-conforming Software, the price paid by the original licensee for the non-conforming Software will be refunded by D-Link; provided that the non-conforming Software (and
all copies thereof) is first returned to D-Link. The license granted respecting any Software
for which a refund is given automatically terminates.
What You Must Do For Warranty Service:
Registration Card. The Registration Card provided at the back of this manual must be
completed and returned to an Authorized D-Link Service Office for each D-Link product

sufficient detail to allow D-Link to confirm the same. The original product owner must
obtain a Return Material Authorization (RMA) number from the Authorized D-Link Service

of the dated purchase invoice for the product) before the warranty service is provided.
After an RMA number is issued, the defective product must be packaged securely in the
original or other suitable shipping package to ensure that it will not be damaged in transit,

packaged and shipped in strict compliance with the foregoing requirements, or for which
an RMA number is not visible from the outside of the package. The product owner
agrees to pay D-Link's reasonable handling and return shipping charges for any product
that is not packaged and shipped in accordance with the foregoing requirements, or that
is determined by D-Link not to be defective or non-conforming.
What Is Not Covered:
This limited warranty provided by D-Link does not cover:
47
Products that have been subjected to abuse, accident, alteration, modification, tampering,
negligence, misuse, faulty installation, lack of reasonable care, repair or service in any way
that is not contemplated in the documentation for the product, or if the model or serial number has been altered, tampered with, defaced or removed;
Initial installation, installation and removal of the product for repair, and shipping costs;
Operational adjustments covered in the operating manual for the product, and normal maintenance;
Damage that occurs in shipment, due to act of God, failures due to power surge, and cosmetic damage; and
Any hardware, software, firmware or other products or services provided by anyone other

Disclaimer of Other Warranties: EXCEPT FOR THE LIMITED WARRANTY SPECIFIED
HEREIN, THE PRODUCT IS PROVIDED "AS-IS" WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY OF ANY

PROVIDED HEREIN, THE ENTIRE RISK AS TO THE QUALITY, SELECTION AND PERFORMANCE OF THE PRODUCT IS WITH THE PURCHASER OF THE PRODUCT.
Limitation of Liability: TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, D-LINK IS
NOT LIABLE UNDER ANY CONTRACT, NEGLIGENCE, STRICT LIABILITY OR OTHER
LEGAL OR EQUITABLE THEORY FOR ANY LOSS OF USE OF THE PRODUCT, INCONVENIENCE OR DAMAGES OF ANY CHARACTER, WHETHER DIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL (INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, DAMAGES FOR
LOSS OF GOODWILL, WORK STOPPAGE, COMPUTER FAILURE OR MALFUNCTION,
LOSS OF INFORMATION OR DATA CONTAINED IN, STORED ON, OR INTEGRATED
WITH ANY PRODUCT RETURNED TO D-LINK FOR WARRANTY SERVICE) RESULTING
FROM THE USE OF THE PRODUCT, RELATING TO WARRANTY SERVICE, OR ARISING
OUT OF ANY BREACH OF THIS LIMITED WARRANTY, EVEN IF D-LINK HAS BEEN
ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. THE SOLE REMEDY FOR A
BREACH OF THE FOREGOING LIMITED WARRANTY IS REPAIR, REPLACEMENT OR
REFUND OF THE DEFECTIVE OR NON-CONFORMING PRODUCT.
GOVERNING LAW: This Limited Warranty shall be governed by the laws of the state of
California. Some states do not allow exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential
damages, or limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, so the foregoing limitations
and exclusions may not apply. This limited warranty provides specific legal rights and the
product owner may also have other rights which vary from state to state.
