Static Electricity Warning

Static electricity is accumulated naturally in the human body, and can be discharged through electrical components by touching them. This shock can potentially cause permanent internal damage to the component.

When installing the adapter, please observe the following precautions:

Discharge yourself before commencing by touching a grounded metal appliance, such as the metal frame of a computer - while it is tuned off, but still plugged into the wall socket.

Hold the adapter or any other boards by their edges only. Never touch any exposed pins on the adapter.

If possible, install the adapter as soon as you remove it from its anti-static bag, without putting it down. If you must put it down, place it on the anti-static bag in which it was packed.

Do not place the adapter on any metal surface.

Hardware Installation

The HyperNet PCMCIA 10/100 TX hardware installation is a three step process:

1. Insert the HyperNet adapter into the computers PCMCIA slot

2. Connect the media coupler to the HyperNet adapter

3. Attach the network cable

The HyperNet PCMCIA 10/100 TX adapter is a Type 11 PC Card which is compatible with any Type 11 PCMCIA slot. If your computer has more than one slot, you may insert the adapter in any of them. The software will automatically determine into which slot the adapter is inserted.

Gently insert the card into the PCMCIA slot, pushing until it sits firmly in place, care must be taken not to force it as the adapter is 'keyed' to fit only one way. If it does not register smoothly, withdraw it and check that the keyed plug on the adapter is correctly aligned with the keyed socket in the host PC.

Now attach the media coupler to the 15-pin keyed socket on the exposed end of the adapter. This media coupler will have an RJ45 female connector that supports both 10Mbps and 100Mbps networks, insert your RJ45 cable into this connector on the coupler, and insert the other end to the wall socket or Ethernet hub.
