    4 Connecting the Network Cable Connect a Twisted Pair Ethernet (TPE) network cable to the adapter as shown below. For 100BASE-TX, your network cable must be Category 5, twisted- pair wiring. If you want to run the adapter at 100 Mbps, it must be connected to a 100BASE-TX hub or switch (not a 100BASE-T4 hub).

  • Page 16: Connect The Wake On Lan Power Cable

    Chapter 4 Connecting the Network Cable Connect the Wake on LAN Power Cable For the Wake on LAN (WOL) feature to work correctly, the adapter must be connected to a continuous power source. This allows the HP NetServer 10/100 adapter to “listen to” the network even when the computer is turned off.

  • Page 17: Using Wake On Lan

    Chapter 4 Connecting the Network Cable Figure 4-1. Connecting the Wake On LAN Cable Locate the WOL connector on your motherboard. The location varies, depending on the vendor and model of motherboard. The WOL connector is usually located near other power connectors, such as the LED connectors. Connect the other end of the WOL cable to the connector on the motherboard as shown in Figure 4-1.

    6 Installing Multiple Adapters The adapter’s 12-digit, hexadecimal Ethernet address is printed on a sticker placed on the adapter. The Ethernet address is sometimes called the node address or the MAC address. Note that the PCI slot number may not correspond with the physical connector in your NetServer.

  • Page 31: Selecting Duplex Mode (optional)

    7 Selecting Duplex Mode (Optional) Duplexing is a performance option that lets you choose how the adapter sends and receives data packets over the network. The adapter can operate at full duplex only when connected to a full duplex 10BASE-T or 100BASE-TX switch, or to another full duplex adapter.

    Chapter 8 Choosing Adapter Teaming Options NOTE The HPANS.LAN driver requires more resources (memory) than a traditional LAN driver. To accommodate this, the minimum and maximum packet receive buffers need to be increased. The exact numbers depend on the complexity of the team; however, the following settings (which are to be added to the STARTUP.NCF file) should be sufficient for most single team systems.
