Put the Adapter(s) in the Server
1
Turn off the computer and unplug the power cord. Then remove its
cover.
Warning: Turn off and unplug power to the computer before
removing its cover. Failure to do so could shock you and may
damage the adapter or computer.
2
3
NOTE:
Remove the cover bracket from a PCI busmaster adapter slot. In most
servers, all slots are busmaster-enabled. If you have configuration
problems, see your server’s documentation to determine if the PCI slots
are busmaster-enabled.
Write down the adapter’s 12-digit, hexadecimal Ethernet address that is
printed on a sticker placed on the adapter. Note also which adapter this
address applies to. You will need this number often in configuring and
monitoring the adapter.
For dual port adapters, the Ethernet address printed on the identification
sticker refers to the port closest to the PCI slot. Increment this
address by one for the second port. For example, if the Ethernet
address on the sticker reads 00A0C93F7F77, then the address of
the port furthest from the PCI slot would be 00A0C93F7F78.

Connect a TPE network cable to each port of the adapter as shown
below.
For 100BASE-TX, your network cable must be Category 5, twisted-pair
wiring. If you plan to run the adapter at 100 Mbps, it must be connected
to a 100BASE-TX hub or switch (not a 100BASE-T4 hub).
For 10BASE-T, use Category 3, 4, or 5 twisted-pair wiring. If you want
to use this adapter in a residential environment, you must use a Category
5 cable.
100BASE-TX Wiring
Twisted Pair Ethernet (TPE).
Use Category 5 cable and an RJ-45
connector for this adapter. Do not
use Category 3 wiring at 100
Mbps. At 100 Mbps, connect to a
TX hub, not a T4 hub. For full
duplex, see Select Duplex Mode

NetWare Server 3.11, 3.12, Client 32, UNIX, OS/2,
Banyan, and Other Operating Systems
Refer to the online documents. On a DOS server, view the appropriate
readme file for information on installing your network driver.
To view the readme files, insert the PRO/100+ Server Adapter
disk into a drive, switch to that drive, and type:
SETUP /README E
Refer to Installing Adapter Drivers for the operating system you need.
Installing Multiple Adapters
All users: The adapter’s 12-digit, hexadecimal Ethernet address is printed on
a sticker placed on the adapter. The Ethernet address is sometimes called the
node address or the MAC address. For dual port adapters, the Ethernet
address printed on the identification sticker refers to the port closest to the
PCI slot. Increment this address by one for the other port, furthest from the
PCI slot. (For example, if the Ethernet address on the sticker reads
00A0C93F7F77, then the address of the port furthest from the PCI slot would
be 00A0C93F7F78).
NetWare users: The server drivers use the PCI slot number to identify each
installed port. You can correlate the PCI slot number to the port by using the
Ethernet address that is printed on a label on the adapter. Run Setup from the
Intel disk to view the Ethernet address and slot number for each port. For
more information, see the readme files. NetWare 4.11 server installations use
unique slot numbers that are assigned during server setup.
Windows 95 users: Repeat the configuration procedure for each adapter you
want to install.
Windows 98 users: You must restart your system after installing each adapter
port. For example, in configuring a dual port adapter, you will restart twice
(once for each port).
13
Select Duplex Mode (Optional)
Duplexing is a performance option that lets you choose how the adapter
sends and receives data packets over the network. The adapter can operate at
full duplex only when connected to a full duplex 10BASE-T, 100BASE-TX
switch, or to another full duplex adapter.
•
•
•
Auto (requires a full duplex adapter or switch with auto-negotiation
capability). The adapter negotiates with the switch to send and receive
packets at the highest rate. This is the default setting. If the switch does
not provide auto-negotiation, the adapter runs at half duplex.
Full duplex (requires a full duplex switch or adapter). The adapter
can send and receive packets at the same time. This mode can increase
adapter performance capability. If the full duplex switch provides autonegotiation, the adapter runs at full duplex. If the full duplex switch does
not provide auto-negotiation, you need to set the adapter duplex mode
manually (see following paragraphs), because it defaults to half duplex.
Half duplex. The adapter performs one operation at a time; it either
sends or receives.
NOTE:
If an adapter port is running at 100 Mbps and half duplex, your
potential bandwidth is higher than if you run it at 10 Mbps and full
duplex.
Manually Configuring for Full Duplex
If your switch supports auto-negotiation with the N-way standard, duplex
configuration is automatic and no action is required on your part. However,
few switches in the current installed base support auto-negotiation. Check
with your network system administrator to verify whether your switch
supports this feature. Most installations will require manual configuration to
change to full duplex.
Configuration is specific to the driver you’re loading for your network
operating system (NOS).
To set up the duplex mode, refer to the section below that corresponds to your
operating system.
NOTE:
14
Adapter performance may suffer or your adapter may not operate
if your switch doesn’t support full duplex and you configure the
adapter to full duplex. Make sure you always set the speed when
you configure duplex.
Setting Full Duplex in DOS, ODI*, NDIS 2.01 Clients
For each port or adapter, edit the NET.CFG or PROTOCOL.INI file. Add
these keywords to the Link Driver section:
FORCEDUPLEX 2
SPEED 100 (or 10 if 10BASE-T)
Setting Full Duplex in NetWare Server
For each port or adapter, in AUTOEXEC.NCF, load E100B.LAN and add the
following statement (you must include the equal sign for servers):
FORCEDUPLEX=2 SPEED=100
(or 10 if 10BASE-T)
For more information, see the readme file for NetWare servers.
Setting Full Duplex in Windows NT, Windows 95,
and Windows 98
While running Windows NT, Windows 95, or Windows 98:
1
From the Control Panel, double-click the PROSet icon.
2
Click on Settings.
3
In the Network Speed list box, select 10 or 100, according to the
speed of your network.
4
In the Duplex Mode list box, select Full.
5
Click OK.
6
Restart Windows.
NOTE:
PROSet does not install automatically under Windows 95 or
Windows 98 during the network driver installation. You must
manually install PROSet before you perform the previous steps.

Choose Adapter Teaming Options
The PRO/100+ Server adapter provides several options for increasing
throughput and fault tolerance when running Windows NT 4.0 or NetWare
4.1x. For a table listing the protocols compatible with each teaming option,
see the section Teaming Options Supported by OS and Protocol.
NOTE:
The terms “adapter” and “port” are used interchangeably throughout
the Adapter Teaming sections that follow. Each port of a dual port
adapter appears as an independent adapter within the Adapter
Teaming Configuration dialog box.
Adapter Fault Tolerance (AFT) — provides automatic redundancy for
your adapter. If the primary adapter fails, the secondary takes over.
Adapter Fault Tolerance supports up to four adapter teams, with two to
four adapters per team.
Adaptive Load Balancing (ALB) — increases transmission throughput
by supporting up to four adapter teams, with two to four adapters per
team. Also includes the AFT option. Works with any 100BASE-TX
switch.
Fast EtherChannel (FEC) — increases transmission and reception
throughput by supporting up to two adapter teams, with two or four
adapters per team. Also includes the AFT option. Requires a Cisco
switch with FEC capability or an HP ProCurve Switch 8000M/1600M.
NOTE:
For information on associating a NIC listing with its physical port, see
the section Associating a NIC Listing with its Physical Port.
General configuration Notes
•
•
Adapter Teaming options are supported by Windows NT versions 4.0
and later, or NetWare 4.1x.
Adapter Teaming options require NT 4.0 with Service Pack 3.0 and the
NDIS driver hotfix from Microsoft. See the Late Breaking News for
details.
Setting Up Adapter Fault Tolerance Only
NOTE:
16
Use this procedure to set up Adapter Fault Tolerance only. If
setting up Adaptive Load Balancing or Fast EtherChannel*, use
the procedures in the next sections since Adapter Fault Tolerance
is automatically added when you select those options.
Adapter Fault Tolerance (AFT) provides the safety of an additional backup
link between the server and hub or switch. In the case of failure in a hub or
switch port, cable, or adapter, you can maintain uninterrupted network
performance.
Adapter Fault Tolerance is implemented with a primary adapter and a backup
(or secondary) adapter. During normal operation, the backup adapter will
have transmit disabled. If the link to the primary adapter fails, the link to the
secondary adapter automatically takes over.
To use AFT, your adapters must be installed in a Windows NT 4.0 or NetWare
4.1x server and they must be linked to the same network.

Setting Up Adaptive Load Balancing
Adaptive Load Balancing (ALB) is a simple and efficient way to increase
your server’s transmit throughput. With ALB you group PRO/100+ Server
adapters in teams to provide an increased transmit rate (up to 400 Mbps)
using a maximum of four adapters. The ALB software continuously analyzes
transmit loading on each adapter and balances the rate across the adapters as
needed. Adapter teams configured for ALB also provide the benefits of AFT.
Receive rates remain at 100 Mbps.
NOTE:
18
For maximum benefit, ALB should not be used under NetBEUI and
some IPX* environments. For a list of specific IPX environments
supported, see Teaming Options Supported by OS and Protocol.
To use ALB, your adapters must be configured as a team in your server and
be linked to the same network switch.

Setting Up Fast EtherChannel
Fast EtherChannel (FEC) is a performance technology developed by Cisco to
increase your server’s throughput.
Unlike ALB, you can configure FEC to increase both transmission and
reception channels between your server and switch. FEC works with FECenabled Cisco switches, such as the Catalyst* 5000 series. It also works with
the HP PROCurve Switch 8000M/1600M.
With FEC, as you add adapters to your server, you can group them in teams
to provide up to 800 Mpbs at full duplex, with a maximum of four PRO/100+
Server adapters. The FEC software continuously analyzes loading on each
adapter and balances network traffic across the adapters as needed. Adapter
teams configured for FEC also provide the benefits of AFT.
NOTE:
For maximum benefit, FEC should be used only under TCP/IP
environments. Do NOT specify Fast EtherChannel (FEC) as a teaming
option unless you are sure the PRO/100+ Server adapters which are to
comprise the team are connected to ports configured for FEC mode,
and that these ports are linked to the same FEC-compatible Cisco
switch. Misconfiguration can cause severe performance degradation.
To use FEC, your adapters must be configured as a team in your server. The
adapters must also be linked to the same supported switch, using ports on the
switch that are adjacent to one another.

Troubleshooting and FAQs
If the Adapter Can’t Connect to the Network
Make sure the cable is installed properly.
The network cable must be securely attached at both RJ-45 connections
(adapter and hub). The maximum allowable distance from adapter to hub is
100 meters. If the cable is attached and the distance is within acceptable
limits but the problem persists, try a different cable.
If you’re directly connecting two servers (no hub), use a crossover cable.
See the Cabling readme file for more information on crossover cables.
Check the LED lights on the adapter.
The adapter has three diagnostic LEDs above each cable connector. These
lights help indicate if there’s a problem with the connector, cable, or switch/
hub. The table on the next page describes the LEDs.

Make sure you’re using the correct drivers.
Make sure you’re using the drivers that come with this adapter. The driver file
name contains the letter B (for example, E100BODI.DOS). Drivers that
support previous versions of this adapter don’t support this version of the
adapter.
Make sure the switch port and the adapter have the same
duplex setting.
If you configured the adapter for full duplex, make sure the switch port is
also configured for full duplex. Setting the wrong duplex mode can degrade
performance, cause data loss, or result in lost connections.
Testing the Adapter (Diagnostics)
Test the adapter by running diagnostics. For DOS or Windows 3.1, run Setup
on the PRO/100+ Server adapter disk. For Windows NT and Windows 95 run
PROSet by double-clicking the PROSet icon in the Control Panel. Click Help
from the main PROSet window to get complete diagnostics information and
instructions.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
SETUP.EXE reports the adapter is “Not enabled by BIOS”.
• The PCI BIOS isn’t configuring the adapter correctly. Try the section PCI
Installation Tips.
The server hangs when the drivers are loaded.
• Change the PCI BIOS interrupt settings. See Technical Information in
the next section for PCI installation tips.
• If you are using EMM386, it must be version 4.49 or newer (this version
ships with MS-DOS* 6.22 or newer).
Diagnostics pass, but the connection fails or errors occur.
• At 100 Mbps use Category 5 wiring and make sure the network cable is
securely attached.
• For NetWare, make sure you specify the correct frame type in your
NET.CFG file.
• Make sure the duplex mode setting on the adapter matches the setting on
the switch.
• At 100 Mbps, connect to a 100BASE-TX hub/switch (not 100BASE-T4).
The LNK LED doesn’t light.
• Make sure you’ve loaded the network drivers.
• Check all connections at the adapter and the switch.
• Try another port on the switch.
• Make sure the duplex mode setting on the adapter matches the setting on
the switch.
• Make sure you have the correct type of cable between the adapter and the
hub. 100 BASE-TX requires two pairs. Some hubs require a crossover
cable while others require a straight-through cable. See the Cabling
readme file for more information on cabling.
The ACT LED doesn’t light.
• Make sure you’ve loaded the correct network drivers.
• The network may be idle. Try accessing a server.
• The adapter isn’t transmitting or receiving data. Try another adapter.

The adapter stopped working when another adapter was added to
the server.
• Make sure the cable is connected to the adapter.
• Make sure your PCI BIOS is current. See PCI Installation Tips.
• Make sure the other adapter supports shared interrupts. Also, make sure
your operating system supports shared interrupts — OS/2 doesn’t.
• Try reseating the most recently installed adapter.
27
The adapter stopped working without apparent cause.
• Run the diagnostics.
• Try reseating the adapter first, then try a different slot if necessary.
• The network driver files may be corrupt or deleted. Delete and then
reinstall the drivers.
Technical Information
PCI Installation Tips
PCI computers are designed to automatically configure add-in cards each
time the server starts. Your PCI server sets the I/O address and IRQ level for
your network adapter when the server starts. These values cannot be changed
by Intel adapter software. If you experience a problem when the server starts,
additional configuration steps may be required.
On these computers, manual configuration is possible through the computer’s
PCI BIOS setup utility. Refer to your computer’s documentation. You may
need to verify or change some BIOS settings.
Some common PCI solutions are listed here.

•
28
Busmaster-enabled slots. On some computers, all slots are not
busmaster enabled by default. Check your BIOS PCI bus setting. It will
be set to either Busmaster or Non-busmastered. Choose Busmaster.
Reserve interrupts (IRQs) and/or memory addresses for ISA
adapters. This prevents PCI cards from trying to use the same settings
ISA cards are using. Check your PCI BIOS setup program. There may
be IRQ options such as Enable for ISA, Reserve for ISA, or Disable for
PCI. This option is sometimes in the Plug and Play area of the BIOS
setup.
Enable the PCI slot. In some PCI computers, you must use the PCI
BIOS setup program to enable the PCI slot. This is especially common
in PCI computers with the PhoenixBIOS*.
Update your PCI BIOS. An updated PCI system BIOS can correct
some PCI configuration problems. Call your server manufacturer to see
if an updated BIOS version is available for your server. Phone numbers
for the top PCI server manufacturers are listed in the PCI Installation
readme file on the PRO/100+ Server adapter disk.
•
Configure the slot for level-triggered interrupts. The slot the adapter
is using must be configured for level-triggered interrupts rather than
edge-triggered interrupts. Check your PCI BIOS Setup program.
Here are some examples of PCI BIOS setup program parameters:
PCI slot #:
Master:
Slave:
Latency timer:
Interrupt:
Edge-level:

“Push” Installation for Windows 95
If you are a LAN Administrator setting up server-based push installation of
Windows 95 as defined in Microsoft Windows 95 Resource Kit, additional
steps are required for this adapter. Refer to the Push Installation for Windows
95 readme file on the support Web site (see the inside back cover).
Fast Ethernet Wiring
100BASE-TX Specification: The 100BASE-TX specification supports 100
Mbps transmission over two pairs of Category 5 twisted-pair Ethernet (TPE)
wiring. One pair is for transmit operations and the other for receive
operations. Segment lengths are limited to 100 meters with 100BASE-TX for
signal timing reasons. This complies with the EIA 568 wiring standard.
Fast Ethernet Hubs and Switches
The two basic types of hubs are shared hubs (hubs) and switching hubs
(switches). This adapter can be used with either type of hub for 10 Mbps. At
100 Mbps, a TX hub or switch is required.
Shared Hubs
In a shared network environment, computers are connected to hubs called
repeaters. All ports of the repeater hub share a fixed amount of bandwidth, or
data capacity. On a 100 Mbps shared hub, all nodes on the hub must share the
100 Mbps of bandwidth. As stations are added to the hub, the effective bandwidth available to any individual station gets smaller. Shared hubs do not
support full duplex.
On a shared hub all nodes must operate at the same speed, either 10 Mbps or
100 Mbps. Fast Ethernet repeaters provide 100 Mbps of available bandwidth,
ten times more than what’s available with a 10BASE-T repeater.
29
Switching Hubs
In a switched network environment, each port gets a fixed, dedicated amount
of bandwidth. If a new user is added to a 100 Mbps switch, the new station
receives its own dedicated 100 Mbps link and doesn’t impact the 100 Mbps
bandwidth of another station. Switches can effectively increase the overall
bandwidth available on the network, significantly improving performance.
Switches can also support full duplex.

only shielded, grounded cables.
If you suspect this board is causing interference, turn your computer on and off while your radio or TV is showing interference. If
the interference disappears when you turn the computer off and reappears when you turn the computer on, something in the
computer is causing interference.
To reduce interference, try these suggestions:
• Change the direction of the radio or TV antenna.
• Move the computer or the radio or TV. For example, if the computer is to the right of the TV, move it to the left of the TV. Or,
move the computer farther away from the radio or TV.
• Plug the computer into a different outlet. Don’t plug your radio or TV into the same circuit as your computer.
• Ensure that all expansion slots (on the back or side of the computer) are covered. Also, ensure that all metal retaining brackets
are tightly attached to the computer.
If these suggestions don’t help, consult your computer dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for more suggestions.
