The Plug and Play (PnP) feature of the EtherExpress™ PRO/10 adapter simplifies most installations. However, sometimes the Plug and Play manager chooses settings that do not work well. If this is the case, disable Plug and Play on the EtherExpress adapter and select settings that do not conflict. To do this, follow these steps:
NOTE: If you are running Windows* 95, after disabling the Plug and Play feature on the adapter, you must remove the PnP enabled adapter driver from Windows* 95, then reinstall using the non-Plug and Play driver.
- Start or restart your computer in DOS mode. (F5 with DOS or Shift-F5 for Windows* 95).
- Start SOFTSET2 by Inserting the EtherExpress™ PRO/10+ LAN Adapter Configuration &
Driver Diskette disk into drive A: (or drive B:). Change to the correct drive and type
SOFTSET2, then press Enter to run the program.
- Select Change adapter configuration, then press Enter.
- Select Advanced Options menu, then press Enter.
- Select Plug n Play , then press Enter.
- Select Disabled, then press Enter. You will get a message that states, "You have changed an option that affects Plug and Play setting. SoftSet2 requires you to cold boot
your computer when you exit SoftSet2". Press Enter to continue.
- Press the Esc key to return to the "Change Adapter Configuration" screen.
- Reconfigure the setting if there are any conflicts. Then press the F10 key to save the new setting and return to the main menu.
- Select Test adapter , then press Enter twice to run the test. If the adapter is working
properly, press Enter to continue. If it fails the Adapter tests or the Onboard
loopback test, return to step#7, change the setting and test again. If it fails the network
test, check the cabling.
- Press the Esc key twice to exit SOFTSET2. Answer Yes when prompted to
exit. You will be prompted to Cold boot your computer, remove the SOFTSET2
diskette from the floppy drive and power off the computer. Wait
15 seconds, then turn the power on again.
