Installation instructions are given in Chapters 2 and 3. General Description The D-Link DFE-690TXD Cardbus PC Card for notebook PCs is a credit-card sized Ethernet / Fast-Ethernet adapter for connecting a notebook PC to an Ethernet network. The notebook PC must be equipped with either a PCMCIA (16 bit) extension bus or it must be Type II Cardbus slot(s) compliant.
(The autonegotiation function is effective only when the DFE-690TXD is connected to the network by a device (switch or hub) which also has autonegotiation functionality.) Inside its compact case, the D-Link DFE-690TXD holds an Ethernet...
Category 5 UTP cable) • 100Base-FX (using two fiber-optic strands). The DFE-690TXD provides full-duplex and half-duplex 100Base-TX operation (in Category 5 twisted-pair cable environments). It does not provide 100Base-T4 or 100Base-FX operation. To provide for traditional 10Mbps Ethernet operation in twisted-pair cable environments, the DFE- 690TXD also offers 10Mbps Ethernet operation, in full-duplex and half- duplex modes.
About Autonegotiation The basic idea of auto-negotiation can be understood by reflecting for a moment on the familiar process of making a dialup connection between two modems. You have probably heard some exchanges between your local modem and a modem at the other end of a telephone line. (These exchanges are ordinarily played out through a speaker in your local modem).
If the supporting switch or hub has autonegotiation functionality, then it and the DFE-690TXD exchange a series of messages in which each device signals its capabilities and listens for corresponding information about the other. The auto-negotiation process requires only a few milliseconds, and the two devices select the best communication parameters supported by both devices.
Once the auto-negotiation is completed, the line is ready, and it will provide an optimal data channel between the DFE-690TXD and the supporting device. The line will remain ready without further auto- negotiation action until the link is broken. Auto-negotiation then reoccurs at any time that the link is restored, again making the line ready for optimal data communications.

690TXD is inserted into an open slot connector, please check the following items if your LED light is not “ON.” When all items are working, your DFE-690TXD’s direct port LED light should light up green (“Link” state.) 1. Make sure that your Ethernet Cat5 cable is in good working order.
Troubleshooting the Hardware Installation If you experience any problems with the hardware installation, first ascertain that all network cable connections are firm, that the proper grade of cable is used for the network connection, and that the cable makeup is correct (straight –– without un-needed crossovers in the connector wiring).
“Quick Install Guide.” If you see symbols such as yellow exclamation point or red “X” over the icon adjacent to “D-Link DFE-690TXD Cardbus PC Card,” your card is not installed properly or may have a problem. Double-click the “ D-Link DFE-690TXD Cardbus PC Card ”...
Diagnostics and Checking Communications Included on the CD-ROM is a “DFE-690TXD PCMCIA Adapter Driver Program.” It is a diagnostic program that will help you determine if any faults exist in your DFE-690TXD Network Adapters or connection.
Pinging your DFE-690TXD Card Follow these steps to Ping a device: Ping is the acronym for Packet Internet Groper (PING), a utility to determine if a specific IP address is accessible. It works by sending a packet to the specified address and waiting for a reply. Ping is primarily used to troubleshoot Internet connections.
Type in following: ping:xxx.xxx.xx.xx, where xxx.xxx.xx.xx is the IP address to be pinged (i.e. 126.96.36.199). In this case, computer A is pinging its own IP address. A successful ping will show four replies.

Computer Identification If you had previously given your Windows 98 computers names or if you are using Windows 98, you may need to verify that each computer has a unique name and common workgroup name. A. On your Desktop, right-click the icon "Network Places" and select "Properties"...
C. Type a unique, identifying name for this particular computer in the "Computer name:" box. This will be the name that other computers on your network will use to communicate with this computer. Each computer’s name must be unique on a particular network or confusion will result.
Sharing Files With your computers connected together on a network, you may now open and save files on another computer. You will be able to specify particular folders or disk drives to "share" and even password protect them. The steps below will enable you to share specific files and folders with other computers on your network.
D. Click to place a check mark next to "I want to be able to give others access to my files." E. Click "OK" on the "File and Print Sharing" dialog box. F. Click "OK" on the "Network" dialog box. G.
J. Right-click on the disk drive or folder icon and select "Sharing."...
K. Select "Share As:" to set the parameters for sharing this particular disk drive or folder. L. The "Share Name:" box is used to identify the disk drive or folder you are sharing to other computers on the network. You can give it any name you wish. However, a specific identification may help as more resources on your network are shared.
O. "Passwords:" allow you to apply a level of security to your shared disk drives and folders. Another computer (user) will be required to enter the password you designate here before accessing the disk drive or folder. Two passwords are used to give two levels of security (or access) to others on the network using the "Depends on Password"...
Sharing Printers "Sharing" a printer connected to one computer with other computers on your network can be very convenient - allowing you to print from any computer on the network. The steps below will enable you to print with other computers on your network. A.
B. Click the "File and Print Sharing" button. C. Click to place a check mark next to "I want to be able to allow others to print to my printer(s)." D. Click "OK" on the "File and Print Sharing" dialog box. E.
Go to START>SETTINGS>PRINTERS Right click on the printer you want to share with others on the network and select "Sharing." Click "Share As:" and provide a "Share Name:" to identify the printer to other computers on the network. "Comment:" and "Password:" are optional. Then click "OK." For a computer to access a Network Printer, the device driver or software for that printer must be installed and pointed to the proper location of the printer.
Note: the computer that the printer is connected to must be “on” to use the printer. If you find this inconvenient, devices known as Network Print Servers are available from D-Link including the DP-301P and DP-101. A Network Print Server would allow you to directly connect your printer to your network without worrying about which computer is “on.”...
