ch 2 Page 2 Monday, August 26, 1996 11:06 AM
Preparing for the installation
Check the package contents of your Asanté EtherPaC 2000+ Adapter
package for:
•
The appropriate Asanté EtherPaC 2000+ Adapter for your network cabling. a BNC connector is included with the EtherPaC
2000+ Thin and EtherPac 2000+ 3-in-1.
•
The ETHERPAC AND DRIVERS disk
•
The Installation Guide (this manual)
During the installation you must observe the following safety rules:
2-2
•
Consult your network administrator about the card installation and its effect on the network; other users must be
warned of the possible interruption of network operations.
•
Turn off the PC and all connected peripherals.
•
When you handle the EtherPaC 2000+ Adapter or touch any
component inside the system, use an anti-static strap or
other Electro-Static Discharge (ESD) equipment. If you use
a wrist strap, attach the strap to the chassis after opening
the PC.
•
Handle the EtherPaC 2000+ Adapter by the edges and avoid
touching the connectors and chips.
•
Keep the EtherPaC Adapter in the anti-static bag until you
are ready to install it.
❖
Note: A network interface card is sensitive to static electricity and must be handled very carefully. If you do not handle
the card properly you can damage it and/or you system. The
limited warranty offered by Asanté does not cover any damage you may cause to the card or system.

Caution!
Check with your network administrator before connecting the EtherPaC 2000+ Adapter to the network.
If the Ethernet cable does not have a T-connector or a
BNC barrel connecting two cable segments, splice the
cable with the appropriate BNC hardware.
Connect the BNC T-connector on the Ethernet cable to
the adapter’s BNC port.
If the PC is at the end of a network segment, keep the
T-connector and terminator on the segment cable and
connect the T-connector to the adapter’s BNC port. The
connector slips on, twists, and locks in place.

Connect the DB-15 connector on one end of a thick
transceiver cable to the adapter and connect the other
end of the cable to the external transceiver.
Lock the connector or tighten the screws.
❖ Note: Your EtherPac 2000+ Adapter may have more
than one connector. You can connect the card to only
one cable at one time.

Automatic configuration
To configure the adapter, you run Auto Configuration and let the Setup
program automatically set the adapter’s parameters to default values.
With two or three cards in the PC
If you have one or two additional cards in the PC with parameters that
conflict with the EtherPaC’s default parameters, you run Set Configuration which lets you change the values in the adapter’s configuration
to non-default values.

Testing the EtherPaC 2000+ Adapter
The Setup program provides a diagnostic program for testing the EtherPaC 2000+ Adapter. The best way to run the test is to run it simultaneously on two or more PCs on the network. You can run the test on
a single PC.
To test one or more adapters:
1
Select Test the Adapter in the Main Menu of Setup.
The program runs a number of tests and indicates the
results with PASS or FAIL in the Test the Adapter Menu.
When a test fails, an error is reported and suggested action

Booting up the PC from a Server
You may want to boot up your PC from a remote server on the network. Or you may have a PC without a boot diskette or a disk drive
and need to boot it up from a remote server.
In each case, to boot up the PC, you need to:
•
Install an Asanté EtherPaC remote Boot ROM on the EtherPaC 2000+ Adapter
•
Have Novell’s Netware software on the network
•
Prepare the PC and the server
•
Boot up the PC by rebooting the server
The 16 Kb Asanté ISA Boot ROM allows you to load the operating system to a PC over the network.
This chapter provides instructions for each of the above steps
required.
3-1
Installing the EtherPaC Boot ROM
You install the Boot ROM in the ROM socket of the Asanté EtherPaC
Adapter.
1
If the EtherPaC 2000+ is installed in the PC and connected
to the network, turn off the PC and disconnect and remove
the adapter.
❖ Note: Follow the safety instructions described on
page 2-2.

Take the Boot ROM out of its protective packaging.
Check all pins on the ROM to make sure none are bent.
Locate the socket for the Boot ROM on the adapter.
Align the Boot ROM’s notch and pins with the socket’s
notch and pins and gently press the ROM into the socket.
See Figure 3-1.
Be careful not to bend the pins.
