PCI Adapter installation
General considerations
 Requires installation of the “PCI-to-PC Card” converter card (sometimes
referred to as “PCI-PCMCIA Bridge” or “PCI Swapbox”)
 Once the PCI Swapbox is installed the Avaya Wireless PC Card can be
inserted in the PCMCIA slot (similar to ISA installation)
 Success of installation of the PCI Swapbox depends on:
 Type of PC Hardware
 Operating System
 Version level of BIOS
Installation 20
PCI Adapter installation
Success factors for PCI swapbox installation
 Type of Hardware:
 New desktops with only PCI slots:
• no incompatibility issues to be expected (exception for systems that have only PCI
slots for reasons of size limitations)
 Desktops with mixture of PCI and ISA slots:
• BIOS needs to be of certain level (see below)
 BIOS level:
 Needs to be PCI version 2.2 compliant
 List of certified Hardware will be compiled throughout life-cycle based on tests and
customer feedback
Installation 21
PCI Adapter installation
Success factors for PCI swapbox installation
 Operating system:
 Windows 98 and Windows ME, will recognize the card and installation is straightforward
 Windows 95 requires the use of a different PCMCIA.INF file (provided separately by
Agere Systems).
 Windows 2000 requires Service Pack 1 to be installed, plus the addition of an entry in
the registry
 and Windows NT4 require installation of Enabler programs (provided by Agere
Systems) or the use of 3rd part software such as Softex
