While this setting affects adapter performance, it allows installation of the operating system and up to eight adapters during initial install. Install the driver software in the Novell NetWare environment. For instructions on installing NetWare Server 5. Allows the addition of a subsystem ID of a specific adapter so that the driver loads only on the first adapter found with a matching subsystem ID. Used to set a system-wide unique hardware instance number HIN that may be the physical slot number on a slot-based bus such as PCI. Since I put this web page up and provided a workable beta version of the drivers, both Compaq and Broadcom have made newer versions available, at links shown below. This mode is protocol-independent and all traffic should be load-balanced and fault-tolerant.

Notice that untagged Other versions of each driver may be obtained from the company that developed the driver. Enables or disables the transmit and receive checksum offload feature.


When INETCFG is used to set up teaming, the physical adapters being added to the team must not have any protocols bound to them before they are added to the team. B57 drivers now available for download from Broadcom’s web site. The chipset is also used in 3COM 3C broadocm cards. Installing NetWare Server 5. LAN must be version 2.

For example; an adapter trying to run speed on a cat3 cable ordinarily would not link. The default is AUTO.

This section describes how to perform the following tasks: Do the following to check if an adapter driver supports NESL events: New Compaq version of the Q57 driver 6. For systems with a PCI-X bus interface, you must install driver version v2. For systems with PCI-X broadckm must install driver version v2.

If LACP determines that some NICs are not able to aggregate because of some restrictive limitations or configurations on the switchthe remaining NICs that cannot aggregate will be idle. These links provide other driver-related information and important or helpful tips for LAN hardware testing and LAN driver development. Go directly to Broadcom’s technical support website.
