3.0 Installation
3.1 Static-Sensitive Devices Precautions Unpacking
Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) can damage electronic components. To avoid
damaging your add-on card, it is important to handle it very carefully. The
following measures are generally sufficient to protect your equipment from
ESD.
Precautions
Use a grounded wrist strap designed to prevent static discharge.
Touch a grounded metal object before removing a component from the
antistatic bag.
Handle the add-on card by its edges only; do not touch its components,
peripheral chips, memory modules or gold contacts.
When handling chips or modules, avoid touching their pins.
Put the card and peripherals back into their antistatic bags when not in use.
3.2
Before Installation
The Ethernet drivers are supported under Windows, Linux,& FreeBSD. For
other supported drivers, please contact your distributors or sales representative,
or refer to Intel http://downloadcenter.intel.com.
To install the add-on card properly, be sure to follow the instructions below.
Power down the system.
Remove the power cord from the wall socket.
Use industry standard anti-static equipment (such as gloves or wrist strap)
and/or an environment that prevents accidental electrostatic discharge.
Familiarize yourself with the server, motherboard, and/or chassis
documentation.
Confirm that your operating system includes the latest updates and
hotfixes.
3.3
Installing the Add-on Card
Follow the steps below to install the add-on card into your system.
1.
Remove the server cover and, if necessary, set aside any screws for
later use.
2.
Remove the add-on card slot cover. If the case requires a screw, place
the screw aside for later use.
3.
Position the add-on card in the slot directly over the connector, and
gently push down on both sides of the card until it slides into the PCI
connector.
Secure the add-on card to the chassis. If required, use the screw that
you previously removed.
Attach any necessary external cables to the add-on card.
Replace the chassis cover.
Plug the power cord into the wall socket, and power up the system.

3.4
Installing the Windows Operating System
These instructions apply to all versions of Microsoft™ Windows™ 2000,
Windows XP (including Windows XP x64 and Windows XP 64-bit Edition),
Windows Vista™ (including Windows Vista x64), and Windows Server™ 2003
(including Windows Server 2003 x64 and Windows Server 2003 64-Bit Edition).
This driver installation updates the drivers for all supported Intel® PRO network
adapters in your system.
Before installing or updating the drivers, insert your adapter(s) in the computer
and plug in the network cable. When Windows discovers the new adapter, it
attempts to find an acceptable Windows driver already installed with the
operating system. If found, the driver is installed without any user intervention. If
Windows cannot find the driver, the Found New Hardware Wizard window is
displayed.
Regardless of whether or not Windows finds the driver, it is recommended that
you follow the procedure below to install the driver. The controller comes with
driver on the CD-ROM CDR-NIC.
The following steps are manual installation for Windows XP
Step 1 Download the latest Intel I350 driver at http://downloadcenter.intel.com.
If your operating system is 32 Bit, download and execute
PROwin32.exe; If your operating system is 64 Bit, download and
execute PROwinx64.exe
Step 2 Click “Next” to start installation
Step 3 Check the agreement box and click “Next”
Step 4 Select “Default” and press ”Next” to continue
Step 5 Driver installing
Step 6 Click “Finish” to complete the installation
Step 7 Confirm installation successful in Control center > Hardware > device
management
Installing Intel PROSet for Windows Device Manager
Intel PROSet for Windows Device Manager is installed from the Product CD
with the same process used to install drivers. You can select Intel PROSet for
Windows Device Manager and Advanced Network Services from the Install
Options dialog.
Tips for PROSet Users
If you have used prior versions of Intel PROSet, you should be aware of the
following changes with Intel PROSet for Windows Device Manager:
With PROSet:
There is no system tray icon.
The configuration utility is not accessible from the CONTROL PANEL
or the START menu.
All Intel PROSet features are now accessed from DEVICE MANAGER.
To access
features, simply open the DEVICE MANAGER and double-click the
Intel adapter you would like to configure.
Removing Intel PROSet for Windows Device Manager
3.5
Use ADD/REMOVE PROGRAMS from the CONTROL PANEL to
uninstall Intel PROSet for
Windows Device Manager.
Ethernet FLASH Firmware Utility
The Intel® Ethernet Flash Firmware Utility (BootUtil) is a utility that can be used
to program the PCI option ROM on the flash memory of supported Intel PCI and
PCI-Express-based network adapters, and to update configurations. BootUtil
replaces existing utilities and provides the functionality of the older IBAUTIL,
ISCSIUTL, LANUTIL, and FLAUTIL. BootUtil supports all the adapters
supported by the previous utilities.
Intel provides the following flash firmware in FLB file format for programming to
the flash memory:
Intel® Boot Agent as PXE Option ROM for legacy BIOS
http://www.intel.com/support/network/adapter/pro100/bootagent/
Intel® iSCSI Remote Boot as iSCSI Option ROM for legacy BIOS
http://www.intel.com/support/network/iscsi/remoteboot/
Network Connectivity, UEFI network driver
http://www.intel.com/support/network/sb/cs-006120.htm
OEMs may provide custom flash firmware images for OEM network adapters.
Please refer to the instructions given by OEMs.
BootUtil allows the user to flash supported firmware to the adapter from the
included master FLB file. This option ROM includes PXE, iSCSI, FCoE and
UEFI drivers, and the image is programmed to the flash memory at once.
BootUtil will also build the required combo images for supported adapters and
program those images to the flash, as well. Since both discrete and combo
images are supported, the -BOOTENABLE command ONLY works on combo
images.
PXE+EFI and iSCSI+EFI image combinations are supported for all OEM
generic adapters, however support is limited to devices which support both
technologies as discrete images. However, flash size is a limiting factor, as the
image size can change without notice.

Appendixes D
Portwell Bypass-gen3 driver package offers a module which includes Add-on
card model driver and Bypass generation 3.0 driver for Portwell Bypass device
control features.
C-1 Introduction
The bypass function is used to link two independent Ethernet ports when the
system crashes or powers off. This means if your system is equipped with a
LAN Bypass function, a condition in your system will not interrupt your network
traffic.
C-2 Bypass Operation
The Bypass Adapter can operate in 3 modes
Normal Mode
Bypass Mode
Open / Disconnect Mode
The following diagram shows the operation of bypass on BPC-51243

Please refer to the LAN_Bypass folder on the Driver and Manual CD.
And the Portwell bypass possesses the following features:
1. Communication through SPI BUS.
2. Independent bypass status control for each pair up to a total of 4 pairs
3. Portwell add-on card can bypass systems Ethernet ports on a host system
during three instances: Normal mode, Bypass mode and Open Mode
3.1 Normal mode:S0
The behavior of this configuration is the same as there is no Bypass feature
built-in. The packets coming in from one Bypass Ethernet port will be
handled by CPU and then be sent out thereafter. It exists only when power
is available.
3.2 Bypass mode: S1
This is one of the Non-normal mode depending on BPE.
The packets coming in from one Bypass Ethernet port will be passed to its
corresponding port directly without CPU’s intervention. It can occur when
either out of power or when power is available. When system is out of
power, it will occur when BPE is set to “enabled”. When power is available
and BPE is set to “enabled”, it can occur when either WDT expires or
Software commend is issued.
3.3 Open mode: S2
This is one of the Non-normal mode depending on BPE.
The packets coming in from one Bypass Ethernet port will be dropped. It
can occur when either out of power or when power is available. When
system is out of power, it will occur when BPE is set to “disabled”. When
power is available and BPE is set to “disabled”, it can occur when either
WDT expires or Software commend is issued.
4. Software programmable bypass or normal mode.
5.
Software programmable timer interval
Normal mode watchdog timer, used during normal mode, has timer
setting of 1~255seconds of timer interval.
Run-Time watchdog timer, used during run-time, has setting of 1~255
seconds of timer interval.
