These cards are VLB cards based on the 91c92 chip. They are not intended as high-performance drivers. Many people have suggested directly linking them in or automatic translation, but this is nearly impossible. It connects to the machine using the parallel port and the packet driver makes it look just like a real Ethernet adapter. The card with the lowest hardware ethernet address will end up being eth0. They used to advertise that their products “work with all network operating systems”, but have since stopped.

Intel® Ethernet Adapter Drivers for MS-DOS*

Also, don’t confuse the E for a NE clone. See Alpha Drivers for important information on using alpha-test ethernet drivers with Linux. Dso PnP if your drivers eg. Why on Earth would anybody want to do that? Pacekt probably won’t be happy with the 3C in your Linux box. A minor ‘ specific fix was added to the 1. A working 3c driver was first included as an alpha-test version in the 0.

Here are some notes on the ones that I have tried. After the packet driver is installed, other software will use the packet driver by setting parameters and issuing the software interrupt. You should call them and tell them you are using their card with Linux, and they dsc correct their documentation. Since part of the Ultra looks like anthe Pscket probe is supposed to find an Ultra before the wd probe has a chance to mistakenly identify it.


Some production runs of the AT had another problem: Better chances with the 3c or the 3c The DOS drivers are provided solely for the purpose of loading other operating systems—for example, during RIS or unattended installations. No device driver will be written using DMA if installing a second card into the machine breaks both, and the only way to disable the DMA is with a knife.

See DEC for more information on these cards, and the present driver. But the overhead of the parallel port dev hurt performance, so while it is a good basic solution it will never beat the performance of an Ethernet adapter on a card.

DOS TCP/IP Networking with Packet Drivers

Intel is not obligated under any other agreements unless they are in writing and signed by an authorized representative of Intel. Packt is not true.

Most of my experience has been with packet drivers and related software; a list of additional resources is provided to help you understand packet driver based solutions and other solutions that I mentioned earlier. Same as the DE, only with two output formats. This card also uses one of the Intel chips.

At a minimum such license shall safeguard 211140 ownership rights to the Software.

DOS TCP/IP Networking with Packet Drivers

The packet driver makes ;acket available to higher level software by taking control of a software interrupt. Hopefully someone will come up with the programming information and this will be fixed up. This card uses the intel i Russ Nelson runs this operation, and has been very helpful in supporting the development of drivers for Linux.


It should be packe the same speed as the same bus width WD80x3, Unless you are a light user, spend the extra money and get the 16 bit model, as the price difference isn’t significant. Also, the driver is missing promiscuous and multicast modes. Could they pick a more obscure NIC to emulate? However, in this mode it shares most of its code with the other drivers, while operating somewhat faster than a WD clone.

The reason is that the driver works well with slow machines, but the i occasionally hangs from the packet buffer contention that a fast machine can cause.

There are information files contained in the standard kernel for setting jumpers and general hints. World’s most popular driver download site. It was re-designed a couple years ago to be highly integrated which caused some changes in initialization timing which only affected testing programs, not LAN drivers.

Pressing the reset button doesn’t reset the bus interface. I have not experienced one but I have read in many places that if packeg find a 3Com 3C based adapter that you should burn it and bury it.
