Hardware Installation
3. Hardware Installation
The following instructions apply to installing the Gigabit Ethernet adapter in most systems. Refer to the manuals that
were supplied with your system for details about performing these tasks on your particular system.
To install the Fiber NIC, perform the following procedure:
1. High voltage inside the system presents a safety hazard. Make sure the power is off before removing the cover.
Warning
Before installing the adapter, ensure the system power is OFF and unplugged from the power outlet, and that proper
electrical grounding procedures have been followed.
2. Remove the system cover and select any empty PCIe slot. See Figure 3-2. If you do not know how to identify a PCIe
slot, refer to your system documentation.
Figure 3-2. Removing the PC cover
Page 9
Gigabit 1000Base-X PCI Express Fiber NIC
3. Select an empty, non-shared PCIe slot and remove the faceplate. Keep the faceplate in a safe place. You may need it
for future use. See Figure3-3.
Note
If you cannot locate or know how to find an PCIe slot, refer to the
documentation that came with your system.
Figure 3-3. Removing the faceplate from PCI slot
4. Remove the fiber card from the shipping package and store the packaging material in a safe location.
Caution
Wear a grounding device and observe electrostatic discharge precautions when installing the fiber card in a system.
Failure to observe this caution could result in damage to the card.
5. Applying even pressure at both corners of the card, push the fiber card until it is firmly seated in the PCIe slot.
Make sure the card is securely seated. See Figure 3-4.

6. Replace the system's cover and secure it with the screws removed in Step 2.
Figure 3-5. Securing the NIC by screws
7. Disconnect any personal antistatic devices.
8. Power the system on.

4. Driver Installation
4.1 Windows 98, ME, 2000, XP, Server 2003, VISTA (32-bit, 64-bit)
1. Start your Windows system and log in. (You must have Administrator privileges to install the driver software.)
When you boot up the Windows system after installing the Fiber NIC, a series of windows opens.
NOTE
Before beginning this procedure, verify that the Windows system has been upgraded to the latest version with the latest
service pack applied.
2. In the Install Found New Hardware window, click No, not this time to copy the driver software from the CD-ROM. Click
Next.
Figure 4-1. Welcome to the Found New Hardware Wizard Window
3. The second Welcome to the Found New Hardware Wizard Window is shown in Figure 4-2. Insert the CD-ROM and
Click Install from a list or specific location (Advanced). Click Next.

Driver Installation
4. When prompted, insert the media to be searched into your CD-ROM drive, type the path to the driver, and select OK.
For example, where "e" is the designation of the CD-ROM drive on your system, enter:
e:\Win2K_XP_Srv2003\32
5. In the Driver Files Search Results window, verify that the correct path to the driver software is shown, then click Next.
The driver location for each Windows operation system is listed below.
Windows 98, ME: CD ROM Root:\Win98_ME
Windows 2000, XP, Server 2003 (32-bit): CD ROM Root:\Win2K_XP_Srv2003\32
Windows 2000, XP, Server 2003 (64-bit): CD ROM Root:\Win2K_XP_Srv2003\64
Windows VISTA (32-bit): CD ROM Root:\VISTA\32
Windows VISTA (64-bit): CD ROM Root:\VISTA\64
6. When the driver installation is completed, restart Windows if needed.
NOTE
On some machines, it is possible that some NICs fail to initialize. This might be caused by insufficient memory. Users
can try to decrease Tx or Rx buffer number to solve this problem.
The Flow Control setting "Hardware Default (Auto)" means the flow control ability depends on the auto-negotiation
result with the link partner. In other settings ("Enable Tx", "Enable Rx", "Enable Tx/Rx"), driver will set the Tx or Rx flow
control ability without auto-negotiation.
4.2 Windows NT 3.51, 4.0
Before starting with the installation process, make sure that the Fiber NIC is properly installed and configured.
1. Open "Control Panel" -> "Networks", and choose the "Add Adapter" button. The Add Noetwork Adapter dialog box
appears. Select "<other> Requires disk from manufacturer" in the list of Network Adapters, and then press <Enter>.
2. Insert the driver CD into your CD-ROM, and specify the path of the driver in the CD(i.e. D:\WINNT) if necessary.
3. Select the correct Adapter, and start to copy the driver files to your system.
4. After all the driver files have been copied to your system, a property dialog box appears in the screen. You can enable
the special properties if you want to.
5. When the driver installation is completed, restart your PC.
NOTE
The Flow Control setting "Hardware Default (Auto)" means the flow control ability depends on the auto-negotiation
result with the link partner. In other settings ("Enable Tx", "Enable Rx", "Enable Tx/Rx"), driver will set the Tx or Rx flow
control ability without auto-negotiation.

4.3 Linux
The instructions listed below are for linux driver installation. You must compile the source code to generate the module
velocityget.o (velocity.ko in 2.6.x kernel, please remember to replace velocityget.o with velocityget.ko in the following
sentences if you are using 2.6.x kernel) and use insmod command to insert it.
This driver supports linux kernel version 2.2.x, 2.4.x and 2.6.x now. For 2.6 kernel, it supported up to 2.6.18 in this version.
This driver supports x86 and AMD64 based linux system.
Please enter the following commands at the UNIX prompt. Remember, UNIX is case sensitive.
1. Create a temporary directory:
mkdir /temp
2. Change to the temporary directory:
cd /temp
3. Copy driver (.tgz file) from DOS disk, (mcopy below is one tool in mtools, if you didn't install mtools, you can type
'mount -t msdos /dev/fd0 /mnt' and use 'cp /mnt/velocityget.tgz /temp' command to copy the driver to the temporary
Directory):
mcopy a:velocityget.tgz
4. untar the archive file:
tar xzvf velocityget.tgz
cd src
5. Compile the driver source files and it will generate object file, and copy it to correct driver installation path (The
installation directory is different in different kernel versions. In 2.4.x/2.6.x kernel, the path is
/lib/modules/KERNEL_VERSION/kernel/drivers/net/, and in 2.2.x kernel, the path is
/lib/modules/KERNEL_VERSION/net/, the KERNEL_VERSION (see above) means the kernel version of your Linux
distribution. If you don't know your kernel version , please run 'uname -r' command in command line. The kernel
version will look like '2.2.16', '2.4.2-2smp' etc.) :
make install
6. Check configuration file (/etc/modules.conf or /etc/conf.modules or /etc/modprobe.conf, it depends on your Linux
distribution) for loading kernel modules. Make sure the first line below is appeared in the configuration file, where # is
the interface number (eg: alias eth0 velocityfet). If you need to set the driver options, below second line is an example
to set the NIC to 100Mbps fullduplex mode (remember to unmark the line if it is put in the configuration file).
alias eth# velocityget
7. Reboot now:
shutdown -r now
8. Install your driver module (If the driver module is in the wrong place, an error message will appear, and say that can't
find the driver module):
insmod velocityget.o
9. Use ifconfig command to assign the IP address, where # is network interface number:
ifconfig eth# <IP>
10. Check the interface works:
ping <remote_host_IP>
