Installation
Warnings:
· Network cards are sensitive to static electricity. To protect the card, avoid
touching its electrical components and always touch the metal chassis
of your computer before handling the card.
· Backup your driver diskette and use the copy as the working diskette to
protect the original from accidental damage.
1. Switch off the computer, unplug the power cord, and
remove the computer’s cover.
2. Select an unused PCI bus-master slot and remove its
protective bracket.
3. Carefully insert the card and press until all the edge
connectors are firmly seated inside the slot. Then, screw
the card’s bracket securely into the PC’s chassis.

Cheetah PCI Adapter
4. Connect the Cheetah PCI Adapter directly to a 10BASE-T
or 100BASE-TX hub or switch using UTP cable (Category
3, 4 or 5 for 10BASE-T; Category 5 for 100BASE-TX). The
maximum allowable length of UTP cable connections is 100
meters (328 ft.). When inserting an RJ-45 plug, be sure the
tab on the plug clicks into position to ensure that it is
properly seated.
5. Replace the computer’s cover and power it on. The
Cheetah PCI Adapter should be automatically configured
by the host computer’s BIOS. However, if you have an
older computer, you may have to manually configure the
computer’s BIOS settings. See “Troubleshooting.”
6. Install the appropriate network driver for your operating
system. The Accton driver diskette that accompanies the
Cheetah PCI Adapter contains all the network operating
system drivers supported by this card. For convenience,
the Windows 95/98 and Windows NT drivers are placed in
the diskette’s root directory. Please read the “RELEASE.TXT”
file on the diskette for a list of all drivers. A text file is
included with each driver to detail the proper installation
procedure. Any new or updated drivers can be
downloaded from Accton’s Web site at http://www.
accton.com.
Setup Program
If the Cheetah PCI Adapter is not automatically configured by
the host PC, or there is a problem with the card, run the DOSbased Setup Program to help configure the PC’s BIOS settings
and test the card.
1. Boot the computer to a full DOS environment (not a DOS
window) and run the Setup Program, SET1207D.EXE, on
the Accton driver diskette. The screen will display the Main
Menu (see below).
3
Quick Installation Guide
2. Select the “View Current Configuration” option from the
Main Menu to access the screen shown below. If you wish
to modify the current configuration, return to the Main Menu
and select “Setup New Configuration.”
3. The host computer’s BIOS automatically allocates the
necessary resources, such as the Interrupt and I/O Base,
to the Cheetah PCI Adapter. Although the Setup Program
will not allow you to change those resources, you can
change the settings displayed on the “Setup New
Configuration” screen (see below).
4
Cheetah PCI Adapter
4. In the event of a problem with the Cheetah PCI Adapter,
use the Setup Program to run the card’s built-in diagnostics
(see the “SET1207D.TXT” file for specific instructions).
Should any of the diagnostic tests fail, reboot your
computer and run the diagnostics again to see if the
problem persists. If it does, record the failure indicated and
contact Accton’s Technical Support for assistance.

Troubleshooting
Check the following troubleshooting items before contacting
Accton Technical Support.
PCI Compatibility
Some PCI computers are not self-configuring and require you
to perform some or all of the following functions by
motherboard jumper changes and/or BIOS Setup program
configuration:
• Make sure your BIOS correctly supports the PCI Local
Bus Specification v2.0 or later and upgrade your computer
BIOS to the latest version.
• Verify that the PCI slot is an enabled bus-master slot and
not a slave PCI slot. In some computers the PCI slot must
be configured to enable bus mastering. Refer to your PC’s
manual and check the PCI BIOS Setup program to be sure
the PCI slot is an enabled bus-master slot.
• In some computers, you may be required to disable Plug ‘n
Play (PnP) in the BIOS Setup program if resources are not
properly assigned between installed cards.
• Some computers may require you to reserve interrupts
and memory addresses for installed ISA cards to prevent
PCI cards from using the same settings. Refer to your
PC’s manual and check the PCI BIOS Setup program
configuration options for ISA cards.
• Make sure the PCI slot is configured to support INTA.
• Be sure that INTA for the slot is assigned to a free interrupt
(IRQ) number.
• Check the BIOS Setup program’s PCI parameters for the
slot where the Cheetah PCI Adapter is installed. Be sure
the slot is configured for level-triggered interrupts instead
of edge-triggered interrupts. An example of typical PCI
parameters follows:
PCI Slot #:
Master:
Slave:
Latency Timer:
Interrupt Type:
Interrupt Number:
(slot number where the network card is installed)
Enabled
Enabled
40 (range is 20 to 255)
Level-Triggered
(choose any number the BIOS Setup supplies
that does not conflict with another installed card)
Note: The wording of these parameters varies with different computers,
and not all parameters may be configurable.
Always consult your computer manual for information on
changing motherboard jumper settings and BIOS Setup
program parameters for use with PCI network cards. If you
set a motherboard jumper and modify the computer’s BIOS
Setup, make sure the jumper and BIOS settings match.

Adapter Installation Problems
If your computer can’t find the Cheetah PCI Adapter or the
network driver doesn’t install correctly, check the following:
• Make sure the adapter is securely seated in the PCI slot.
Check for any hardware problems, such as physical
damage to the card’s edge connector.
• Try the card in another PCI bus-master slot. If all fails, test
with another Cheetah PCI Adapter that is known to operate
correctly.
• Check for resource conflict in the PCI configuration. See
“PCI Compatibility.”
• Make sure your computer is using the latest BIOS
available.
• If there are other network adapters in the computer, they
may be causing conflict. Remove all other adapters from
the computer and test the Accton adapter separately.
• Check for a defective computer or PCI bus by trying the
adapter in another computer that is known to operate
correctly.
Network Connection Problems
If the Link LED on the adapter’s bracket does not light, or if
you can’t access any network resources from the computer.
Check the following:
• Be sure you are using Category 5 cable for 100Mbps
connections, and that the length of any cable does not
exceed 100m (328ft.).
• Inspect all network cables and connections. Make sure
the cable is securely attached to the adapter’s connector.
• Make sure the correct software driver is installed for your
operating system. If necessary, try reinstalling the driver.
• Make sure the computer and other network devices are
receiving power.
• If the adapter’s speed or duplex mode has been configured
manually, check that it matches that of the attached
network device port. Note that it is recommended to set the
adapter to auto-negotiation when installing the network
driver.
• The port on the network device that the adapter is
attached to may be defective. Try using another port on
the device.
• If you cannot access a Windows or NetWare service on
the network, check that you have enabled and configured
the service correctly. If you cannot connect to a particular
server, be sure that you have access rights and a valid ID
and password.
• If you cannot access the Internet, be sure you have
configured your system for TCP/IP.
