Introduction
The D-Link DGE-528T is ideal for the small office or home office environment. After completing the
steps in this manual, 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 DGE-528T comes with drivers for the most popular operating systems and can be integrated
into a larger network. However, this manual is designed to help you network two computers running
Windows 95/98, Windows Me and Windows 2000 in a peer-to-peer configuration. Yet, the standards
compliant DGE-528T gives you the flexibility to expand and customize your Fast Ethernet / Gigabit Ethernet
network at will.
The Fast Ethernet standard allows you to connect computers and devices at speeds up to 100 Mbps.
Gigabit Ethernet allows speeds up to 1000 Mbps. A Dual-Speed 100/1000 Mbps Ethernet / Gigabit Ethernet
network combines both standards allowing computers and devices of different speeds to communicate
with each other. The DGE-528T is a Dual-Speed 100/1000 Mbps Fast Ethernet / Gigabit Ethernet network
card.

Technology Basics
About Gigabit Ethernet
Gigabit Ethernet is a network technology specified by IEEE Standard 802.3ab. It extends the traditional
100Mbps Fast Ethernet technology to achieve 1000Mbps transmission and reception, while retaining
the same CSMA/CD Ethernet protocol. Thus, while Gigabit Ethernet provides a tenfold increase in network
capacity, it is wholly compatible with traditional 100Mbps Fast Ethernet network facilities. This compatibility
is the key to easy and efficient upgrades to 1000Mbps in your network areas needing greater bandwidth.
Upgrading selected areas to Gigabit Ethernet does not require hardware or software changes in network
areas where traditional 100Mbps Ethernet is providing good service. For upgrading, Gigabit Ethernet is
the clear choice in terms of cost-effectiveness, as well as convenience and smoothness in transition.
4
Category 5 cabling is required for 1000Base-T Gigabit Ethernet in order to provide full duplex
operation. Full duplex 1000Base-T operation allows simultaneous transmission and reception,
both at 1000Mbps, thus providing service potentially equal to 2000Mbps full-duplex service
To provide compatibility in traditional 100Mbps Fast Ethernet environments (where, for example
DGE-528T adapters are installed anticipating upgrade of supporting switch equipment to Gigabit
Ethernet), the DGE-528T also supports traditional 100Mbps Fast Ethernet operation, in full-duplex
as well as half-duplex modes. Selection of the best operation mode in any given installation is
automatically governed by auto-negotiation.
About Auto-Negotiation
You have probably had the experience of making a dialup connection through a modem, and have
heard the sound exchange between your modem and the modem at the other end of the telephone
line. As irritating as those few seconds of noise may be, they do let you know that your modem and
the remote modem are on the job, preparing for your intended communication with the remote
computer.
When the two modems have tested the phone-line quality and settled on the combination of shared
options and parameters which will provide the best data communication over the connecting phone
line, then you are given the “connect” message which signals the end of the intermodem
negotiation and the beginning of your intended communication with the remote computer.
Auto-negotiation between devices within an Ethernet LAN is similar in concept, but much briefer.
The two devices involved in the auto-negotiation will be the DGE-528T Adapter serving your
station (installed in your computer), and the switch through which it is connected to the LAN. The
options to be negotiated between the DGE-528T and its supporting switch includes Ethernet type
(1000BASE-T Gigabit Ethernet or 100BASE-TX Fast Ethernet) and duplex mode (half-duplex, being
one-way-at-a-time, or full duplex, being simultaneous transmit-and receive.)
Startup communication between the two devices occurs when both devices are powered up. Once
the cable connection and the Network Operating System software is satisfied, the preparatory
process of auto-negotiation between the DGE-528T and its supporting switch proceeds
automatically. If the switch has auto-negotiation functionality, it and the DGE-528T exchange a
series of messages, 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.
If the switch does not support auto-negotiation, the (single capability) message will be recognized
by the DGE-528T auto-negotiation facility, which will switch to those settings of its own
capabilities, which match that of the switch.
Auto-negotiation reoccurs any time the linkage is restored, making the line ready again for optimal
data communications.
About PCI Bus
Your DGE-528T Adapter delivers outstanding performance by fully exploiting the advance
features of your computer’s PCI bus. DGE-528T Adapters utilize the Bus Master Mode of the
PCI bus, allowing direct transfers of Ethernet packet content between computer memory and the
adapter’s controller, thus minimizing network demands on the CPU. The adapter’s controller
function provides the additional benefit of reduced command processing overhead.
5
The working relationship between a DGE-528T adapter and main memory working in Bus Master
mode is powered by the Bridge/Memory Controller of the PCI bus. This reduces the CPU role in
network operations, thus freeing the CPU to service other tasks, with resulting improvement in overall
computing (multitasking) performance. At the same time, it produces superior network throughput by
reducing latency (waiting for CPU service) during transmissions and receptions.
Features
Wake On LAN
Wake On LAN (WOL) is an ACPI function allowing a powered down (sleeping) computer to be powered
ON from a remote station. To use the WOL feature, the NIC must be WOL capable and the motherboard
of the PC must be ACPI compliant. While powered-down computers Sleep, WOL enabled NICs monitor
LAN traffic for valid Wake-up frames. When one is received, the NIC will immediately wake-up and
send a signal to the motherboard to power ON the computer.
Some uses for the WOL feature include:
·
Forgot a document and are out of town? Send a Wake-up signal to your computer and
retrieve the needed file.
·
Initiate long routines and reports before you get to work.
·
Transfer files when the network traffic is low (during late hours).
·
Power ON your PC before you arrive to work.
·
The MIS department can upgrade software on computers after hours from a remote station.
Connecting the WOL Cable
NOTE: If your system’s motherboard WOL Connector does not fit the WOL Cable or does not
have 3 pins, do not attempt to force a connection or alter the components to fit. Doing so could
permanently damage your computer.
The WOL function is system dependent, in addition to the following instructions, you may
need to download WOL software from INTEL or another manufacturer’s website.
Please consult your computer’s manual for specific BIOS settings.
The WOL Cable is an interconnect cable with standard 3-pin connectors on each end. Please follow
the procedures listed below to ensure proper installation of the WOL cable.
1. Connect either end connector of the WOL Cable to the NIC WOL Connector. Both ends of the
WOL Cable are identical, so either end may be used.
Examine the PC motherboard and/or refer to the manual for the motherboard to locate the corresponding WOL Connector on the motherboard. The actual location is system dependent, but the
motherboard may have a label beside the WOL Connector. After you have located the WOL connector
on the motherboard, connect the cable.
6
1. Power-ON the PC and press “Delete” or “F1” when prompted to enter the PCI/ISA BIOS CMOS
Setup. Enable the WOL function or the power-ON function of the PC. The name of this function
is system dependent, but may be located in a category heading titled something like Power
Management. Refer to your computer’s manual for more information regarding the CMOS
Setup Utility and BIOS settings.
Flow Control
The DGE-528T implements IEEE 802.3x compliant flow control for full-duplex, which provides traffic
management functions for full-duplex operation. Flow control allows for enhanced full-duplex operation
with switches. When operating at full-duplex (requiring a direct connection to a switch) and the switch’s
data buffer is about to overflow, a Pause frame will be transmitted to the DGE-528T. The ensuing
idle time keeps the buffer from overflowing and prevents data from being lost. This enhancement can
improve network throughput, avoid collisions and prevent lost data, helping the network achieve optimal
performance.

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.
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. Use the steps in Networking Basics to ensure that each computer on your
network has a unique Computer Name and identical Workgroup.
Verify Network Adapter Installation
If your Network Adapters were not properly 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. Double-click the System icon in the Control Panel.
2. Select the Device manager tab on top of the System Properties dialog box.
3. Double-click Network adapters if you do not see any items branching out. You should see
D-Link DGE-528T Gigabit Ethernet PCI Adapter branching out after double-clicking Network
adapters.
19
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 all the steps
for this computer.
If you see symbols such as a yellow exclamation point or red “X” over the icon adjacent to “D-Link
DGE-528T Gigabit Ethernet PCI Adapter,” your adapter is not installed properly or may have a
problem. Double-click the “D-LinkDGE-528T Gigabit Ethernet PCI Adapter” to 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 DGE-528T with Category 5 UTP cables. Examine the Network cables
and ensure that they have not been damaged by walking-on, rolling over with 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.
Understanding Indicators
Your DGE-528T has indicators or lights that can give you information about your network traffic
and help you determine problems when troubleshooting.
Your DGE-528T have two indicators labeled “ACT” and “LINK” on their back panels. A steady
green “LINK” light indicates a good connection with the switch. A flashing green “ACT” light
indicates that the Network Adapter is sending or receiving data.
Pinging your DGE-528T 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 that they can communicate. If they can
communicate, then the hardware and cabling is probably okay. 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.
20
Pinging your DGE-528T Card continued
Go to Start> Run.
Type Command
Click OK
Type in the following: ping xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx, where xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx is the IP address to be
pinged (i.e. 192.168.0.1). In this case, computer B with the IP address=192.168.0.1 is being
pinged from computer A. Press Enter to begin pinging.
21
If the connection is good, you will receive four “Reply from” messages. Type exit at the prompt
to return to Windows.
