- Intel PRO/100 LAN+Modem PC Card Characteristics
This release of the PRO/100 LAN+Modem PC Card has the following characteristics:
- Provides seamless operation on either 10 Mbps or 100 Mbps Ethernet networks with simultaneous modem connections.
- Network driver support - Allows 10 Mbps or 100 Mbps connection across a wide range of operating systems and networks. Native 32-bit NDIS3 driver support for Windows* 95 and Windows NT* included.
- Utilizes K56Flex* modem technology which allows access to information and E-mail on corporate networks, the Internet, and other online services at speeds up to 56 Kbps over standard phone lines. K56Flex enables speeds up to 56 Kbps when data is downloaded. Upstream data sent from the user travels at the standard V.34 rate. The modems at both ends of the call must be K56Flex compatible to achieve 56K speeds, if not, they will negotiate a standard V.34 connection.
- Flash ROM-upgradeable which allows quick and easy software upgrades.
- Windows 3.x installation program - Automatically configures both PC and NOS setup directly from Windows versions 3.1 and 3.11.
- HotSwap support - Makes it easy to replace one card with another while power is on; or to gracefully disconnect from the network.
Release Notes/Known Limitations

- Intel recommends disabling the IR port and built in modem, then using interrupt 9. ThinkPad utilities that aid in configuring the 760ED are available from IBM's* Web site.
Toshiba Portege 660CDT
- ThinkPad 760XD
- Intel recommends disabling the IR and Serial ports, then using COM1 for the Intel modem and interrupt 9. IBM's internal MWave modem should be placed at COM2.
Toshiba Satellite Pro 430
- All Intel references under CardWork in the Registry and all Tranxit references in the SYSTEM.INI must be removed for proper installation using the M16B.SYS.
- Card and Socket Services (CS/S) must also be removed from the CONFIG.SYS.
- If the PRO/100 LAN+Modem 56 adapter doesn't install properly as both a modem and a network adapter under Windows 95, check for updates from Toshiba's* Web site.
- When using M16BODI.COM or M16BNDIS.EXE in a DOS/Win 3.x environment, C/SS needs to be loaded for the adapter to be recognized.
- When using M16B.SYS under Windows NT 4.0, the driver fails to initialize.
- When using M16BODI.COM or M16BNDIS.EXE in DOS/Win 3.x environments, Intel recommends adding the keyword MODE IO in the PROTOCOL.INI or NET.CFG.
NEC 6000 and 6030
- When using M16B.SYS under Windows 95 or Windows NT 4.0, the Plug & Play setting in the BIOS must be set to: NO.
- Intel recommends disabling the IR port.
- When using the M16BNDIS.EXE or M16BODI.COM under Windows 3.x with CS/S, Intel recommends that you go to the CardWiz directory, execute CONFIG.EXE, select Modem Card Configurations, and change the interrupt number of com4 (currently 11), to int=9.
- When using the M16BNDIS.EXE or M16BODI.COM under Windows 3.x without CS/S, Intel recommends setting the Modem to load at COM4 in the PROTOCOL.INI or NET.CFG.
- When using M16B.SYS under Windows NT 4.0 with Service Pack 1 using CardWizard, the driver will fail to initialize. Intel recommends removing CardWizard.
- When using M16B.SYS under Windows 95, remark out the Tranxit references in the SYSTEM.INI. Also, remove the SXIRC027.INF and NETXIR.INF from the \windows\system\inf directory.
Modem Script Files
- When using M16BODI.COM in DOS/Win 3.x environments, C/SS needs to be loaded for the driver to initialize. IMENABLE.COM will not load.
Modem script files are located on Disk 2, Network Drivers, under A:\scripts. See SCRIPTS.TXT or the User's Guide for additional installation instructions for these modem script files.
