Installation
WARNING! PCI Express cards, like all computer equipment, can be severely damaged by static
electricity. Be sure that you are properly grounded before opening your computer case or
touching your PCI Express card. StarTech.com recommends that you wear an anti-static strap
when installing any computer component. If an anti-static strap is unavailable, discharge yourself
of any static electricity build-up by touching a large grounded metal surface (such as the
computer case) for several seconds. Also be careful to handle the PCI Express card by its edges
and not the gold connectors.
Hardware Installation
1. Turn OFF the computer power before installation.
2. Remove the chassis cover from your computer.
3. Locate an unused PCI Express slot and remove the corresponding slot cover from
the rear panel of the computer chassis. Retain the screw (if applicable) used to hold
the slot cover in place.
4. Align the PCI Express card with the unused PCI Express expansion slot. Applying
pressure evenly across the top edge of the expansion card, firmly but gently insert the
card into the slot, ensuring that the card is properly aligned with the rear panel slot.
5. Secure the card to the motherboard and rear chassis using the screw removed in
step 3 (if necessary). Secure the additional serial port provided by the daughter
board (smaller circuit board to an adjacent rear bracket.
6. Replace the chassis cover (removed in step 2).
7. Power on the computer. Once the computer has been rebooted, the operating
system will detect that the PCI Express card has been installed and request driver
installation, detailed in the next section.

1. Remove the protective covers from the PCI Express Fiber Gigabit Ethernet Adapter’s connector.
2. Prepare a network cable with corresponding connectors for the two end devices,
one end to the PCI Express Fiber Gigabit Ethernet Adapter and the other to a
1000Mbps fiber port on the network switch.
3. Connect the network cable to the connector on the PCI Express Fiber Gigabit
Ethernet Adapter. This network cable consists of two individual cables: one for
‘transmission (TX)’, and the other for ‘reception (RX)’.
4. Connect the other end of the network cable to a 1000BASE-SX switch.
5. i. Insert the cable that is connected to the transmit (TX) connector on the PCI Express
Fiber Gigabit Ethernet Adapter into the receive(RX) connector on the network switch.
ii. Insert the cable that is connected to the receive (RX) connector on the PCI Express
Fiber Gigabit Ethernet Adapter into the transmit (TX) connector on the network switch.

6. When the cable is properly connected to two end devices, turn on the power to the PC.
7. Check the LNK (Link) LED. The LED will come on when the PCI Express Fiber Gigabit
Ethernet Adapter is receiving a good link signal from the connected device, a switch.
Software Installation
1. Once PEX1000MMSC/ PEX1000MMST has
been installed in the computer, turn on
the power to the computer.
2. When the Found New Hardware Wizard
window pops up, select Install from a list
or specific location (Advanced)and click
Next to continue.
3. Select Search for the best driver in these
locations. and then select Include this
location in the search. Click Browse to
specify the driver location and click Next
to continue.
