Introduction
Thank you for choosing D-Link DFE-500TX, the value leader among Fast
Ethernet adapters for PCI−Bus personal computers. This Introduction chapter
will be useful if you are new to Fast Ethernet and other new technology
featured by the DFE-500TX. Otherwise, skip ahead to the Installation chapter.
About Fast Ethernet
Fast Ethernet is a network technology specified by IEEE Standard 802.3. It
extends the traditional 10Mbps Ethernet technology to achieve 100Mbps
transmission and reception, while retaining the same CSMA/CA Ethernet
protocol. Thus while Fast Ethernet provides a tenfold increase in network
capacity, it is wholly compatible with traditional 10Mbps Ethernet network
facilities. This compatibility is the key to easy and efficient upgrades to
100Mbps in your network areas needing greater bandwidth. Upgrading
selected areas to Fast Ethernet does not require hardware or software changes
in network areas where traditional 10Mbps Ethernet is providing good service.
For upgrading existing Ethernet installations to 100Mbps, and especially for
selectively upgrading areas needing upgrade, Fast Ethernet is the clear choice in
terms of cost-effectiveness, as well as convenience and smoothness in
transition.
Fast Ethernet comprises two subtypes: 100Base-T4 and 100Base-TX.
100Base-T4 Fast Ethernet can utilize existing Category 3 or Category 4 UTP
network cabling, but does not provide for full duplex operation. 100Base-TX
requires Category 5 cabling, but does provide full duplex operation. Full duplex
100Base-TX operation allows simultaneous transmission and reception, both at
100Mbps, thus providing service potentially equal to 200Mbps half-duplex
service.
DFE-500TX Ethernet PC Card User's Guide
The DFE-500TX Adapter does not support the 100Base-T4 subtype. To
provide compatibility in traditional 10Mbps Ethernet environments (where, for
example, DFE-500TX adapters are installed anticipating upgrade of supporting
hub equipment to Fast Ethernet), the DFE-500TX also supports traditional
10Mbps Ethernet operation, in full-duplex as well as half-duplex modes.
Selection of the best operation mode in any given installation is automatically
governed by Autonegotiation.
About Autonegotiation
You have probably had the experience of making a dialup connection through a
modem, and have heard the gravelly−sounding exchanges between your
modem and the modem at the other end of the telephone line (these exchanges
are ordinarily played out through a speaker in your local modem). As irritating
as those few seconds of noise may be, they do let you know that your modem
and the remote modem are on the job, preparing for your intended
communication with the remote computer.
The preparatory work of the two modems during those few seconds before you
see the “connect” message is to negotiate the best data communication scheme
which is supported by both modems, and which is suitable for the quality of the
telephone line linkage between them. The parameters to be settled between the
two modems include best baud rate, compression method, and error correction
method. When the two modems have tested the phone-line quality and settled
on the combination of shared options and parameters which will provide the
best data communication over the connecting phone line, then you are given
the “connect” message which signals the end of the intermodem negotiation
and the beginning of your intended communication with the remote computer.
Autonegotiation between devices within an Ethernet LAN is similar in concept,
but much briefer. The two devices involved in the Autonegotiation will be the
DFE-500TX Adapter serving your station (installed in your computer), and the
hub through which it is connected into the LAN. The options to be negotiated
between the DFE-500TX and its supporting hub include Ethernet type
(100BASE-TX Fast Ethernet or 10BASE-T Ethernet) and duplex mode (halfduplex, being one-way-at-a-time, or full duplex, being simultaneous transmitand-receive).

DFE-500TX Ethernet PC Card User's Guide
Startup communication between the two devices occurs when both devices are
power-on, the cable connection between them is good, and the Network
Operating System software is running. As soon as those conditions are
satisfied, the preparatory process of Autonegotiation between the DFE-500TX
and its supporting hub proceeds automatically. If the hub has Autonegotiation
functionality, then it and the DFE-500TX exchange a series of messages in
which each device signals its capabilities and listens for corresponding
information about the other. The Autonegotiation process requires only a few
milliseconds, and the two devices select the best communication parameters
supported by both devices.
If the hub does not have Autonegotiation functionality, then its monotone
(single capability) message will be recognized by the DFE-500TX’s
Autonegotiation facility, and the DFE-500TX will simply switch to the one of
its own capabilities which matches that of the hub.
When the preparatory procedure of Autonegotiation is completed, then the line
is ready and will provide a data channel which is optimal for the two devices.
The line will remain ready without further Autonegotiation action until the
linkage is broken. Autonegotiation then reoccurs at any time that the linkage is
restored, again making the line ready for optimal data communications.
About PCI Bus
Your DFE-500TX Adapter delivers outstanding performance by fully
exploiting the advanced features of your computer’s PCI bus. DFE-500TX
Adapters utilize the Bus Master Mode of the PCI bus, allowing direct transfers
of Ethernet packet content between computer memory and the adapter’s
controller, thus minimizing network demand on the CPU. The adapter’s
controller function is implemented by a DEC (Digital Equipment Corporation)
Intelligent Ethernet Controller chip, which provides the additional benefit of
reduced command processing overhead.
The working relationship between a DFE-500TX adapter and main memory
working in Bus Master mode is powered by the Bridge/Memory Controller of
the PCI bus. This reduces the CPU role in network operations, thus freeing the
CPU to service other tasks, with resulting improvement in overall computing
(multitasking) performance. At the same time, it produces superior network

Installation
Installation of a DFE-500TX Ethernet Adapter requires hardware installation
first, then software installation.
Unpack and Inspect
CAUTION:
Under ordinary circumstances, a DFE-500TX card
will not be affected by static charge as may be
received through your body during handling of the
unit. In special circumstances where you may carry
an extraordinarily high static charge, it is good
practice to reduce the charge by touching a ground
before handling the adapter card.
Open the shipping carton and carefully remove all items. In addition to this
User's Guide, ascertain that you have:
• One DFE-500TX Ethernet Adapter Card
• One 3.5" diskette: DFE-500TX Software Diskette
If your order included the Boot ROM option, then you should also have,
separately packaged, one Boot ROM Chip. In the event that you find any
mismatch, damage or missing item, promptly contact your dealer for correction.
DFE-500TX Ethernet PC Card User's Guide
Install the Adapter
1.
Shut down the computer, unplug its power cord, and remove the chassis
cover.
2.
If your order does not include the Boot ROM option, go ahead to Step 3.
If your order includes the Boot ROM option, then install the Boot ROM
Chip by plugging the chip into the Boot ROM Socket on the DFE-500TX
card. The notched end of the Boot ROM Chip must be aligned with the
notched end of the Boot ROM Socket (opposite alignment will cause
destruction of the Boot ROM Chip).
3.
Insert the contact edge of the DFE-500TX card into the connector of any
available PCI Bus Master expansion slot. Press the card firmly into the
connector to ascertain that the card’s contacts are fully seated in the
connector.
4.
Install the bracket screw which secures the card to the computer chassis.
5.
Replace the computer’s chassis cover.
6.
Reconnect the computer’s power cord, and switch computer power on. If
the BIOS section of your computer’s boot program is Plug and Play
compliant, then at power-up the BIOS will automatically configure any
newly installed DFE-500TX adapter.
NOTE: Due to a fault in some Plug-n-Play BIOS programs, it
happens occasionally that a newly installed adapter is
assigned an Interrupt Number which is already assigned to
another device. In such a case, the conflict of Interrupt
Number will cause faults in the behavior of both devices.
Then it is necessary to run the CMOS Setup utility, and
manually assign a non-conflicting Interrupt Number.

DFE-500TX Ethernet PC Card User's Guide
Connect the Network Cable
Category 5 UTP cable is good enough to qualify under both the Fast Ethernet
cabling rules and the traditional Ethernet cabling rules. The maximum
individual cable run between any station and its supporting hub is 100m. The
maximum individual cable run joining two hubs is 10m in general, but is 100m
when both hubs qualify as Ethernet Class 2 Repeaters (all D-Link Ethernet
hubs do qualify). But these cable runs may need to be shorter than the given
individual maximum lengths, because their lengths are also restricted by the
rule that the maximum aggregated cable run between any two stations is
205m.
Connecting for Fast Ethernet
Category 5 UTP cable is required for Fast Ethernet operation. The maximum
cable run between the DFE-500TX and the supporting hub is 300 ft. The cable
must be “straight” (not a “crossover” cable), with an RJ-45 plug at each end.
Make the network connection by plugging one end of the cable into the RJ-45
receptacle of the DFE-500TX, and the other end into a port of the supporting
hub.

Connecting for 10Mbps Ethernet
Category 3, Category 4, and Category 5 UTP cable, as well as EIA/TIA - 568
100-ohm STP cable, all qualify under Ethernet cabling rules. The maximum
cable run between the DFE-500TX and the supporting hub is 300 ft. The cable
must be “straight” (not a “crossover” cable) with RJ-45 plug at each end.
Make the network connection by plugging one end of the cable into the RJ-45
receptacle of the DFE-500TX, and the other end into a port of the supporting
hub.

Software Installation
On account of the great variety of network environments in which the DFE500TX may be installed and used, and the frequency of revisions in those
network systems, the instructions for software installation are given as
README files on the DFE-500TX Software Diskette. Review the root
directory README for overview information, then for full installation details,
see the README and referenced instruction files in the subdirectory
appropriate to your network operating system.

DFE-500TX Ethernet PC Card User's Guide
Verification/Diagnostic Program
This test program verifies configuration of the DFE-500TX as set by the
installation procedure, and assists with isolation of any faults in operation.
Verification and testing procedures are optional, and will only be useful in the
unusual event that there is a fault, such as an interrupt number conflict among
your computer’s expansion cards. If your installation provides normal
operation, you might choose to skip these procedures.
The Verification/Diagnostic Program provides two levels of testing: adapter
function testing and network operation testing. Adapter testing includes three
separate procedures:
a. Serial ROM Verification
b. Controller Internal Loopback test
c. Twister Layer Loopback test
Adapter testing does not require substitution of a loopback cable. All three
parts of the Adapter test may be carried out with the network cable connection
in place.
For the network operation test, the cable connecting your station with its
supporting hub must be in place. Network test involves “broadcast”
transmission of test packets from the primary station. The test cannot be fully
implemented unless a second station on the LAN is available to the network
operation test, in order to return the test packets to the primary station.
To run the Verification/Diagnostic Program, proceed with these steps:
Adapter Function Test
1.
Insert the DFE-500TX Software Diskette in an available drive (here
shown as drive A). At the DOS prompt (here shown as >), key in:
> A: \DIAG\DIAG500.EXE
and <RETURN>. The opening screen of the Verification/ Diagnostic
program will appear.
Error! Style not defined.
11
DFE-500TX Ethernet PC Card User's Guide
2.
Key <RETURN> to bring up the Configuration Data screen. Review the
reported configuration data before proceeding to Step 3.
3.
The Configuration Data screen also features a Diagnostic Menu. Follow
the cues at the foot of the screen to select and run the Adapter Basic
Diagnostic program. The adapter function test results will appear
onscreen.
12
Error! Style not defined.
DFE-500TX Ethernet PC Card User's Guide
In the Controller Loopback test, test signals are generated at the rate of
100Mbps, and are intercepted and reflected at the MAC level without
reaching the network cable.
The Serial ROM Verification, Controller Internal Loopback test, and Twister
Layer Loopback test should all show the result “Pass,” irrespective whether a
loopback cable is in place. This concludes the Adapter Basic Diagnostic test. If
the results are normal, then go ahead to the Network Diagnostic test, starting
with Step 4.
Network Operation Test
4.
If you have access to a second station on the LAN, then skip ahead to Step
5. If you do not have access to a second station on the LAN, then the
network test will be limited to “blind” transmission of test packets (none
of which will be returned to the primary station). Follow the cues at the
foot of the screen to select and run the Network Diagnostic program.
Observe the “Packets Transmitted” line to see that the “Packets
Transmitted” line reports a steadily and rapidly increasing packet count.
This will indicate normal transmission onto the LAN, and will be the end
of your Verification/Diagnostic run. Skip the remaining steps shown
below.
Error! Style not defined.

DFE-500TX Ethernet PC Card User's Guide
5.
Remove the DFE-500TX Software Diskette from your station's (the
primary station's) diskette drive, and insert it into an available drive of a
second station on your LAN. At the DOS prompt (here shown as >), key
in:
> A: \DIAG\DIAG500.EXE
and <RETURN>. The opening screen of the Verification/Diagnostic
program will appear onscreen at the second station. Key <RETURN> to
bring up the Configuration Data and Diagnostic Menu onscreen at the
second station. Follow the cues at the foot of the screen to select and run
the Network Diagnostic program at the second station. The second station
then begins broadcasting test packets, and at the same time is also ready to
receive and return test signals transmitted from the primary station’s
newly installed DFE-500TX.
7.
Return to the primary station and follow the cues at the foot of the screen
to select and run the Network Diagnostic program. Observe the “Packets
Transmitted” and “Packets Received” lines to see that they track together
(always show equal count numbers), which verifies normal network
operation.

other boards, or improper installation. In the event that any of the
verification/diagnostic tests fails, review the following troubleshooting list.
1.
Ascertain that the adapter card is fully and firmly seated in the slot
connector.
2.
Check the length and rating of connecting cables.
3.
Ascertain that the adapter’s PCI slot is not deactivated at the BIOS level.
The CMOS Setup utility in PCI computers ordinarily provides the option
to activate or deactivate PCI slots.
4.
Replace the adapter in question with a verified adapter and run the
diagnostic test again.
5.
Install the questioned adapter in another PCI computer and run the tests
again.
6.
Remove all other PCI adapters from the computer and run the tests again.
If the verification/diagnostic run is then normal, then there is probably an
interrupt number conflict which will have to be resolved manually by a
CMOS Setup utility run after you have reinstalled all of the expansion
cards.

Troubleshooting
If you experience any problems with the adapter, first ascertain that the
appropriate driver is loaded, that the proper grade of cable is employed for the
network connection, and that the supporting hub is properly qualified for the
application (such as 10BASE-T or 100Base-TX).
The DFE-500TX Adapter features five LED indicators:
• 100Mbps/10Mbps SPEED SELECTION
This LED shows steady green when 100Mbps speed is selected. It is dark
(off) when 10Mbps is selected.
• FULL/HALF DUPLEX SELECTION
Steady green indicates Full Duplex operation selected. Dark when Half
Duplex operation is selected.
• LINK
Steady green indicates good linkage between the DFE-500TX and its
supporting hub.
• ACTIVE
Flashing green indicates that the adapter is transmitting or receiving.
• COLLISION
Intermittent yellow indicates data collisions the network.
