DFE-530TX Ethernet Adapter Card

Introduction
Thank you for choosing the D-Link DFE-530TX, the value leader among Fast Ethernet adapters
for PCI Bus personal computers. This introduction gives a general description of the newer
networking technologies found on the DFE-530TX.
The DFE-530TX provides IEEE 802.3x Flow Control Enhancements, which are needed for a
network adapter to function with a switch. In full-duplex mode, the MAC implements the PAUSE
control function. This means when a switch is connected in full-duplex mode and it senses that
its buffer will overflow in the near future, the switch will transmit one standard Ethernet packet
that causes the DFE-530TX to pause for a period, thus avoiding internal buffer overflow and
packet loss.

requirements.

Installation
Unpack and Inspect
CAUTION:
Under ordinary circumstances, a DFE-530TX card will not be affected by a static chargethat may be
received through your body during handling of the unit. In special circumstances, the user may carry
an extraordinarily high static charge and 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. Ensure that the following items are
included:
•
One DFE-530TX PCI Fast Ethernet Adapter Card
•
DFE-530TX Drivers and Manual on CD-ROM
If any of these items are missing or damaged, please contact your local reseller for replacement.
Software Installation
You must install the driver software for your DFE-530TX before installing the PCI card into your
PC. Insert the CD into your PC’s CD-ROM drive. It should begin running the driver installation
program, if you have auto-execute enabled.
When the screen shown below appears, click the Install Driver link.
If you do not have auto-execute enabled for your PC’s CD-ROM drive, navigate to the root
directory of the CD using Windows Explorer and click on the file named Autorun.exe. This will
open the window shown above. Then click the Install Driver link to install the driver.

DFE-530TX Ethernet Adapter Card
The CD-ROM included with your DFE-530TX is designed to make installation of necessary
software a painless and trouble-free process. Simply click on the Install Drivers link, and an
Installation Wizard will guide you through the process, no matter which operating system you’re
running. The included Adobe Acrobat Reader, which is needed to read or print out your user
manual, will also come in handy for many other applications.
Simply follow the directions in the Wizard, and your DFE-530TX will be installed successfully in
just a few minutes, allowing you to enjoy the many advantages of joining an Ethernet LAN.
When the driver installation program (shown above) is complete, you can then install the PCI
card inside your PC. When you restart your PC, the DFE-530TX will be ready to use.
Installing the Adapter
1. Shut down the computer, unplug its power cord, and remove the chassis cover.
(Important: Opening the case of your computer may compromise the warranty of your computer.
Consult the computer manufacturer before opening the case to ensure that you adhere to
warranty guidelines. In some cases, you may need to have the DFE-530TX installed by your
computer manufacturer.)
2. Insert the contact edge of the DFE-530TX card into the connector of any available PCI Bus
Master expansion slot. Press the card firmly into the connector such that the card’s contacts
are fully seated in the connector.
3. Install the bracket screw that secures the card to the computer chassis.
4. Replace the computer’s chassis cover.
5. 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-530TX adapter.
NOTE: Due to a fault in some Plug-and-Play BIOS programs, occasionally a newly installed adapter is assigned an
Interrupt Number which has already been assigned to another device. In such a case, the conflict of the
Interrupt Number will cause faults in the behavior of both devices. Therefore, the user must run the CMOS
Setup utility, and manually assign a non-conflicting Interrupt Number.
Connecting the Network Cable
Category 5 UTP cable qualifies for both 100BASE-TX Fast Ethernet and 10BASE-T Ethernet
cabling rules. The maximum length of any single cable segment is 100 meters. Please keep in
mind, however, that the maximum cable run between any two stations in a collision domain is
205m.

Troubleshooting
If you experience any problems with the adapter, check to see:
•
that the appropriate driver is loaded;
•
that the proper grade of cable is employed for the network connection;
•
that the supporting hub is properly qualified for the application.
The DFE-530TX Adapter features two LED indicators:
•
Link/Activity – Steady green indicates good linkage between the DFE-530TX and its
supporting server or switch. Flashing green indicates activity (transmitting or receiving) within
the adapter.
