Important Points Installing 82567 NDIS Driver

  1. The NDIS2 (DOS) driver is provided solely for the purpose of loading other operating systems -- for example, during RIS or unattended installations. It is not intended as a high-performance driver.
  2. You can find adapter drivers, PROTOCOL.INI files, and NET.CFG files in the PRO100/DOS or PRO1000/DOS directory on the download folder.
  3. When the driver finds that only one adapter is installed in the system, it will use that adapter regardless of whether or not parameters in PROTOCOL.INI are present or correct. If the parameters do not match the actual configuration, the driver will display warning messages indicating that the parameter was not used.
