Help!! NE2100 PCI Card

Post by Mel Ro » Fri, 29 Mar 1996 04:00:00



Does anyone have any experience with these cards?

I can't seem to get it to work!

The IRQ is set in the BIOS to IRQ 9
the driver ****PCNTNW*****  runs fine, as does IPXODI, etc, but alas - it just
cant find the Server!!!

I set up a new driver which I received from my supplier - but this requires
LSL ver 2.11, which I can't seem to find (Netware 3.12)

The last word I got from that series (including the ne2500) are that
they are going out of production. The driver pcntnw had alot of problems
which are solved by the latest version. All the ne cards I had which came
with a flashbios update disk failed.

Look for landr?.exe in ftp://ftp.novell.com/pub/updates/nwos/nw312
Or look for a disk with a red label inside the ne2100 box, that should
contain at least 2.11.

Its a bit moot now that they are going out of production with these
cards... I've had alot of problems getting them to work with all the
driver and card bugs, but now that I finally got a good card and
drivers they are at least twice as fast as the fastest other NE cards
I have. Having seen the speed I would not have had a problem replacing
all the cards with those... I had faith in this new technology but
it seems to be down the drain anyway. Oh well, I've got one ne2500
working in my pc and its mine! ;-)

I went looking and all I can tell you is where not to look.
Hopefully that will narrow your search.

LSL is found in at least the following files;

CDROM     LSL v2.01 (921105)  NW 3.12 CDROM as supplied
DOSUP9    LSL v2.05 (930910)

 [ Somewhere in this time frame would be LSL v2.11 ]

VLMUP2    LSL v2.14 (941011)  VLM Client 1.20
VLMUP3    LSL v2.15 (9     )  VLM Client 1.20a
VLMUP4    LSL v2.16 (950417)  VLM Client 1.20b
?
Only other possibility to try, Do you have an IRQ free <except 15>
other than the IRQ 2/9 Combo interrupt ?
?

 * 1st 2.00 #8863 *    LSL ver 2.11 Where oh where are you ????

1. Bellsouth: PCI card or Ethernet Card?

My two other options are Earthlink and Telocity. I've seen two Earthlink
installations (with all the tweaks etc) and never seen them clock beyond
300-350Kb/s (Single PC, same neighborhood as my new place).

I'm gonna go with Telocity. I've already been using them for a year at my
previous apartment, I've always clocked >1100Kb/s d/l speeds and haven't had
too many problems...

Thanks y'all
