Standby power supply compatibility cross-reference

A NO listed against your computer model below means that the standby power supply current of your IBM system may not be sufficient to supply power to the adapter in standby mode when the computer is off. Your Intel® PRO/100 Management or Desktop Adapter can be used in any of these systems if the 3-pin cable is not attached. However, if the cable is not attached, you will not have Wake on LAN* capability.

If your system is not listed here, follow these guidelines:

  • Check the power supply label on your IBM computer. Look for the value +5SB. If the rating is equal to or higher than the requirements for your version of the PRO/100 Management or Desktop adapter (see the table below), the power supply is adequate. If the rating is less than the requirement, do not attempt to use the Intel® PRO/100 Management or Desktop adapter in this computer.

  • If the power supply is adequate, check the Wake-on-LAN* connector. If it is a three-pin connector, you can use the PRO/100 Management adapter with the standard cable. If it is equipped with a two-pin connector, you can use the PRO/100 Management or Desktop adapter with the two-pin to three-pin adapter cable.
