EtherFast® 10/100 LAN Cards
Introduction
The Linksys EtherFast 10/100 LAN Card
Fast Ethernet is a relatively new standard of networking built specifically for
speed-intensive network applications like video-conferencing, multimedia
development, imaging, and complex databases. Capable of sending and
receiving data at 100 megabits-per-second over 4 wires in half duplex mode,
and 200Mbps in full duplex, Fast Ethernet technology is at least 10 times
faster than traditional 10BaseT networks.
Built to run with the fastest network applications, the EtherFast 10/100 LAN
Card is a high performance network adapter for desktop computers with 32bit PCI expansion slots. Boasting an incredible maximum data throughput of
200 megabits per second in full duplex mode (100Mbps in half duplex), the
EtherFast is ready to run with both 10BaseT and 100BaseTX networks right
out of the box – the card's 10/100 combo port automatically detects your network's maximum speed and adjusts itself accordingly.
The EtherFast 10/100 LAN Card from Linksys also features Wake-On-LAN
event management. If your PCI motherboard has built-in WOL support, you’ll
be able to utilize this unique management feature. You can remotely turn on
any computer with a WOL network card to perform after-hours tasks or to
access files. The ultimate in managed 10/100 networking is yours! If you
don’t have WOL support on your motherboard or you have no need for it,
don’t worry -- your EtherFast 10/100 LAN Card will operate normally anyway.
If your mission critical applications require blinding network speed, the
EtherFast 10/100 LAN Card is the best value for your networking dollar.

Installing the EtherFast 10/100
LA N Card
Overview
Each EtherFast 10/100 LAN Card is equipped with an RJ-45 port that automatically adjusts to either 10Mbps or 100Mbps speeds, allowing your PC to
attach to either Fast Ethernet (also known as 100BaseTX) or regular 10BaseT
Ethernet network segments without additional hardware or software.
The card should only be used with twisted-pair cabling. 10BaseT and
100BaseTX cabling is available in a number of different grades. For best
results, we recommend using 8-wire, category 5 unshielded twisted-pair for
both 10BaseT and 100BaseTX network segments, although category 3 can be
used for 10BaseT segments. The cable that runs from your PC’s EtherFast
card to your network should not exceed 100 meters (328 feet). Both Category
3 and 5 twisted-pair cabling can be purchased at most computer stores, or if
you prefer, you can crimp your own cables. See page 67 for wiring information.
Installing the Network Card & Cabling
1. Power off your PC and any peripheral equipment attached to it. Unplug
your PC’s power cord.
2. Remove your computer's outside cover.
3. Open your computer and locate the PCI
slot(s) on your motherboard. PCI slots are easily identified by their beige or white color, and
by the fact that network cards fit snugly into
them. Remove the metal slot cover on the back
of the PC, then insert the EtherFast 10/100
LAN Card into a PCI card slot, as shown in
the photograph on the next page (top).
Note: Some
network cards
might need a
bit of muscle
to be installed.
Our network cards are built
strongly, and are hard to
break. Avoid a call to technical support by making
sure that your card is inserted all the way into your PC’s
network slot!
4. If you are interested in Wake-On-LAN, you can go to page 62 now.
Wake-On-LAN can be installed at any time, so there is no need to do it
now. If you don’t know what Wake On LAN is, or if you know that you
don’t want to use WOL, proceed to step 5 on the next page and return to
WOL later.

5. Once your EtherFast EtherFast 10/100 LAN Card is firmly in place,
secure its fastening tab to your PC's chassis with a mounting screw.
6. Replace your PC's cover.
7. Connect one end of a twisted-pair cable to your PC at the EtherFast
10/100 LAN Card's RJ-45 port.
8. Plug the other end of the cable into one of your network’s 10BaseT or a
100BaseTX hub or switch ports, DSL modem, cable modem, router, etc.

Troubleshooting
Troubleshooting hints for Windows can be found below. If you are using
Windows NT, NetWare, or another network operating system, skip to the
Card Diagnostics instructions on page 49.
Troubleshooting Hints for Windows 95 and 98
1. Windows doesn’t detect new hardware with the EtherFast Card hardware
installed, or it continues to detect the card each time you restart your PC.
• You might not have inserted the PCI card correctly or securely into the
appropriate slot of your computer. Check that the card is securely inserted into the appropriate slot.
• Try inserting your card into an alternate PCI slot.
• You may have previously aborted a new hardware setup. Follow the directions on page 55.
• The motherboard in your system might not be Plug-and-Play compatible,
your PC’s Plug-and-Play settings may not be enabled, or the motherboard
may have Plug-and-Play options not supported by Windows 95/98. If you
are not sure, contact your PC’s manufacturer.
2. Windows can’t locate the driver for the EtherFast Card device.
• You may have inserted the wrong diskette into your PC’s drive.
• The diskette may be defective or files may be missing. Make sure the
disk has a few files in a:\ starting with lne100 or a folder called Win95
for Window 95 or Win98 for Windows 98
3. The Windows Logon screen doesn’t appear after you restart your computer.
• Click on Start, Shut Down, then Close All Programs and Logon as a
Different User, (in Windows 98, select Log Off). If this doesn’t solve the
problem, your PC’s manufacturer may have disabled Windows’ networking. Contact your computer’s manufacturer for help.
4. After entering a username and password, a window appears that reads, “No
Domain Server could be found to validate your Username and Password.”
• Click on Start, Settings, Control Panel. Double-click on Network. Click
on the Configuration tab. Under The Following Network Components are
Installed box, highlight Client for Microsoft Networks and click on the
Properties button. Once you are in the Client For Microsoft Networks
Properties window, make sure that Log on to Windows NT Domain is
unchecked. Once you have made sure that it is unchecked click on the
OK button and restart your computer.

Page 46
Linksys EtherFast Series
5. On the Access Control Tab, User Level Access is selected, but Shared Level
Access is grayed out and not accessible.
• You previously had your primary network logon set to Client for NetWare
Networks. On the Configuration tab of the Network Properties window,
ensure that your primary network logon is set to Client for Microsoft
Networks.
• Your personal web server PC or Microsoft Front Page may require you to
choose a user level for security reasons.
6. In Network Neighborhood you can only see your self and no other computers
on the network.
• Make sure that the cables are connected correctly. Make sure you are getting Link or Activity lights on both the EtherFast Card and your hub. Try
changing to a new cable that you know is working.
• Your workgroup name may be different from other computers on your
network. Make sure each PC on the network is using the same workgroup
name and protocol.
• Try using the Find Computer function (see problem 10).
7. In Network Neighborhood, you can see all other computers on the network but
not yourself, and all other computers can see each other and not your computer.
• You may have not have enabled File and Printer Sharing. To do so, go to
page 20 step number 3, or page 11 step number 3.
• The network card might not be setup properly. Try reinstalling the card’s
drivers. To clean your system of the old installation, go to page 55 and
then re-install.
8. Network Neighborhood is Empty.
• Verify that your Microsoft Client is installed. See the Windows 95 or 98
setup instructions in this guide for directions. Verify that you have logged
in correctly. Refresh the screen by pressing F5 several times.
9. You receive DHCP Errors in Windows.
• If you are connecting to a DHCP server, check your cabling and connection. If you require TCP/IP to be configured, check with your network
administrator or your Windows documentation for proper settings.
• If you don’t have a DHCP server on your network and your network
setup doesn’t require TCP/IP, you may remove the TCP/IP component
from Windows’ networking. To do this, click on Start, Settings, Control
Panel, then double-click on Network. Click once on the component
entry with the words TCP/IP and Linksys or TCP/IP on its own, then
click on the Remove button. Click OK when finished and restart your

• If all computers are using the same protocol(s) and Workgroup name, and
Windows 95 computers can't see Windows 98 computers, enable
NetBIOS on all the computers using Windows 95 and 98. Follow these
instructions:
• The IPX/SPX-compatible protocol should be installed on all Windows
computers (see page 60 if you need to add this protocol). Bring up the
properties of the IPX/SPX-compatible protocol by clicking on Start,
Settings, Control Panel, then double-click the Network icon. Choose the
Configuration tab and highlight IPX/SPX-compatible Protocol. Click on
Properties. Now, to install NetBIOS, click on the NetBIOS tab. Put a
check next to I want to enable NetBIOS over IPX/SPX. Click OK, then
OK again. Windows will copy the appropriate files to your computer.
When asked to restart your PC, remove any floppy disks and click OK.
Be sure to do this on all of your computers that are having trouble seeing
your entire network.
11. The workgroup, protocols, cabling and driver are all working properly, but the
PC uses an AMD processor and it can only see itself in network neighborhood.
• In some instances with PCs using AMD processors, the IRQ assigned to
the card by the BIOS (as it gets listed on the bootup screens of most PCs)
doesn't correspond to the IRQ assigned by Windows. This can be fixed
by disabling the IRQ holder for PCI Steering in the Windows Device
Manager. Refer to your PC's documentation for instructions or you can
follow the suggested instructions below. Keep in mind that this procedure
will vary depending on your computer’s configuration.
• Click on Start, Settings, Control Panel, then double click the System
icon. Click on the Device Manager tab. Open System Devices, then open
PCI Bus.

• Click on the IRQ Steering tab. Remove the check from Use IRQ Holder
and click OK. Windows will ask you to restart the PC (if it doesn’t ask
you, then reboot the PC manually).
• After the computer boots up, Windows will try to re-detect the PCI
Steering. Continue rebooting the PC until Windows stops detecting new
hardware and settings for PCI Steering. This normally takes a total of
four reboots.

EtherFast® 10/100 LAN Cards
Running the Card’s Diagnostics
If you suspect that there may be a problem with the Fast Ethernet Card, or if
you need to identify the card’s MAC address, you can use the DIAG diagnostic program on the EtherFast 10/100 LAN Card Driver Disk.
To run the program, start up your computer in DOS. The program only works
in standard “real DOS mode” DOS – it will not work in a Windows DOS
window. To get into “real DOS mode,” do the following:
• In Windows 95, start your computer. When the Starting Windows... message appears, press the F8 key. You will then get to the Microsoft Window
Startup Menu.
• In Windows 98, start your computer (No Starting Windows... message
will appear). Immediately and rapidly press the F8 key until you get the
Microsoft Window Startup Menu.
1. Choose the Safe mode command prompt only option. Press Enter on
the keyboard.
2. Insert the Linksys Fast Ethernet 10/100 Network Card Driver Disk into
drive A. Enter the appropriate commands after the following prompts:
• When “C:\>” appears, type “a:” then press Enter.
• When “A:\>” appears, type “cd diag” then press Enter.
• When “A:\diag>” appears, type “diag” then press Enter.
You can also copy the software to your local (c:\) drive and run DIAG
from your hard disk.
3. The Fast Ethernet Diagnostics Program will appear, providing a display
of the card’s basic information (Ethernet Address, IRQ, I/O Port and
Media Type). Press Enter to begin the testing cycle. If the card isn’t
found, power off the PC and ensure that the card is properly seated in the
PCI slot.
4. The word “passed” will appear next to each successful test. If the card
fails the Peer-to-Peer, Ping, or Bandwidth tests, any network problems
that you are experiencing are external to the card; check your cabling and
hub connections. If the card fails the Loopback or Register tests, check
your computer’s settings, then contact Linksys Customer Support for
help.

Sharing Your Files and Printers
Overview
By sharing your files and printers, other PCs on your network will be able to
access the resources on your PC.
Before sharing your files and printers, you should prepare your computer to
be used with any file servers that may be on the network. If you are not using
Windows 95 or Windows 98 with an NT or NetWare file server, or if you are
not sure if you have a file server, continue below.
If you are using a NetWare or NT file server, go to page 53 or 54, respectively, for client setup.
Enabling File Sharing
1. Double-click your My Computer icon. A window of available disk drives
will appear.
2. Using your right mouse button, click once on the drive or folder that you
want to make available to other users.

Installing and Configuring Wake-On-LAN
Overview
Only install the Wake-On-LAN wires if your motherboard supports remote
wake-up events. Improperly connecting the wire or connecting it to a motherboard socket other than the designated 3-pin socket can damage your hardware.
The EtherFast 10/100 LAN Card supports both Magic Packet and Link
Change remote wake-up events.
Magic Packet An administrator can send a “wake-up” packet to a specific
PC on the network. That computer then boots up, allowing the administrator
to access the PC’s drives. After the work is done, the PC goes into a sleep
mode (using about 10% of the normal amount of power) or shuts off completely, depending on the management software being used.
Link Change is a remote wake up event that is triggered by any change in
the EtherFast card’s link state. If you have Wake-On-LAN networking set up
on the PC, plugging an active network cable into the LAN Card will cause
the PC to automatically turn itself on.
Motherboard Support
WOL-compatible motherboards can offer support for a number of different
Wake-On-LAN interfaces. The EtherFast 10/100 LAN Card is compatible
with PME and RWU-high. Consult the motherboard documentation that came
with your PC to find out which type of WOL interface your computer will
use to communicate with the network card. In some cases, you may need to
enable the WOL support in your PC’s BIOS.
Note: Some PME-supporting motherboards
may not require the
WOL wire to be connected. Check your
PC’s documentation
for more information.

Setting Up Your EtherFast LAN Card for Wake-OnLAN Use
Note: The location of each
motherboard’s WOL connection
will vary from PC to PC.
Consult your PC’s documentation if you can’t find it.
1. Turn off your PC and remove the power cable
from the wall. Use the picture below to
locate where the WOL wire plugs into your EtherFast LAN Card.
2. Connect one end of the 3-pin Wake-On-LAN wire to the EtherFast LAN
Card.
3. If your EtherFast LAN card isn’t plugged into your motherboard, slide it
in now.
4. Connect the loose end of the WOL wire into the WOL plug on your PC’s
motherboard. (Check your motherboard’s documentation for proper WOL
wire installation.)

Sending a Magic Packet
In order to use WOL you need to know the MAC address of the card you
wish to “wake”. If you don’t know the MAC address of the PC you are on,
turn to page 49 to learn how to run the EtherFast Card’s diagnostic program.
1. Turn off the PC on which you want to test the WOL feature. Go to another
PC on the network and log in.
2. Go to an MS-DOS prompt. Run the diagnostics program (page 49). Press
Enter to begin the test.
3. When the test is complete, press F3 and select Send
an ACPI Packet.
4. Press the M key. You will be asked for the destination of the magic packet. Enter the MAC address of
the PC you want to “wake up” and press Enter.
Note: The Diag program works only if
both the PC sending
the magic packet and
the PC receiving the
magic packet are
installed with
EtherFast 10/100 LAN
(version 4) cards.
5. Check to ensure that the PC has woken up.
Testing a Link Change WOL PC
This test will see if your PC responds to a change in the network link state by
waking up. Use a configured PC that is on an active network link.
1. Turn your PC off and disconnect it from the network either by turning off
the hub or switch or by disconnecting the network cable form the LAN
card.
2. Wait about ten seconds, then plug the cable back in or turn on the hub. The
PC should wake up.

About Plug-and-Play PCI Technology
The EtherFast 10/100 LAN Card is designed to run in a 32-bit desktop computer equipped with PCI expansion slots. The card is built to the PCI 2.1
standard.
Short for Peripheral Components Interconnect, PCI is a technology that
allows special Plug-and-Play expansion cards to be automatically configured
by a computer’s BIOS (Basic Input/Output System) once they have been
installed. (Refer to your computer’s user guide for more information about its
BIOS.)
When a PCI card is used in a computer that supports Plug-and-Play, the card
is automatically configured each time the computer is booted. The card's
IRQ, I/O address, and other operating parameters are automatically assigned.
There is no easy way to change a Plug-and-Play card's IRQ and other settings
outside of the BIOS menu(s) that your computer provides. If the resources
that are assigned to your EtherFast card seem to conflict with other devices in
your computer, you will need to use your system's BIOS to resolve the conflicts. If you have problems configuring your BIOS or resolving IRQ or other
hardware conflicts, consult your computer’s manual or contact your PC's
manufacturer for BIOS setup and configuration directions.
Here are some general guidelines to follow when installing a PCI card (such
as the EtherFast card) into your computer:
1. The EtherFast LAN adapter should be used in a 32-bit PCI slot that supports PCI Bus Mastering. It cannot be plugged into a PCI Bus Slave slot.
Consult your motherboard's documentation for more information on master
and slave slots.
2. If loading the EMM386.EXE program in your PC's CONFIG.SYS, you
must use version MS-DOS 6.22 or above. If you load an older
EMM386.EXE program (below DOS 6.22), your PC will hang up while
loading the network driver.
3. When using NT, set your system’s PNP OS option in the BIOS settings to
MANUAL or DISABLE. NT is not a Plug-and-Play OS, and will not usually recognize LAN cards if they are set to be automatically detected and
configured. If you need to configure your PC's BIOS in order to resolve an
IRQ or other conflict with the EtherFast card, there are a few possibilities:
65
LNE100TX v4 test doc.qxd
3/22/00
4:15 PM
Page 66
Linksys EtherFast Series
No Changes Allowed Your PC may not allow you to change the IRQ value(s)
of the PCI slot(s). In this case, you will ONLY be able to use the IRQ and I/O
values that have been pre-assigned to each slot. The popular BIOS from
Phoenix, for example, does not generally allow you to modify BIOS-assigned
IRQ settings.
Jumper Changes You may be able to change the IRQ & I/O values for a given
PCI slot by setting jumpers on your PC motherboard. Please refer to your
PC's motherboard user guide for specific instructions.
Menu Changes Your PC may allow you to change the IRQ & I/O values for a
given PCI slot by accessing the PC's BIOS setup menu. Please refer to your
PC's user guide for specific details. The BIOSs from companies like AMI and
Award are fully customizable from their BIOS menus, for example.

Twisted-Pair Cabling
There are different grades, or categories, of twisted-pair cabling. Category 5
is the most reliable and is highly recommended. Category 3 is a good second
choice. Straight-through cables are used for connecting computers to a hub.
Crossover cables are used for connecting a hub to another hub (there is an
exception: some hubs have a built-in uplink port that is crossed internally,
which allows you to link or connect hubs together with a straight-through
cable instead).
You can buy pre-made Category 5
cabling, or cut and crimp your own.
Category 5 cables can be purchased or
crimped as either straight-through or
crossover cables. A Category 5 cable
has 8 thin, color-coded wires inside
that run from one end of the cable to
the other. All 8 wires are used. In a
straight-through cable, wires 1, 2, 3,
and 6 at one end of the cable are also
wires 1, 2, 3, and 6 at the other end. In
a crossover cable, the order of the
wires change from one end to the
other: wire 1 becomes 3, and 2
becomes 6. See the diagrams on the
next page for more detailed information on straight-through
and crossover cabling.
To determine which wire
is wire number 1, hold
the cable so that the end of the plastic RJ-45 tip (the part
that goes into a wall jack first) is facing away from you.
Face the clip down so that the copper side faces up (the
springy clip will now be parallel to the floor).When looking down on the copper side, wire 1 will be on the far left.
