Protocol suites are interesting but most people do not interact with them; they use applications that hide the details of the protocol suite and underlying data transfer medium. This is usually in lieu of transferring the information over a computer network.

Almost every old machine can use floppy disks bazed the serial port for data transfer and for a machine that is rarely used that is all you need. Back to all Notices.

There are lots of ways to connect computers together. This was a simple approach that worked back when there were few network adapters, but you can see a few problems with it. Oops in pwc v4l driver, CVE SCSI, such being expensive and used mostly for high-end servers.

Serial ports are relatively easy devices to program and lots of people wrote software that uses the serial port. But if you enable networking you get the following advantages:. It assumes a specific data transfer port number, which is what was standard years ago. Brutman, mbbrutman at gmail.


There is a lot of software out there for networking using a packet driver and there are already a lot of resources on the Internet that describe those resources. I couldn’t find a driver for it anywhere so I made my own custom using Window’s XP inf file, and windows ‘s system file. There is a 16 bit real mode version for use on the older machines and a 32 bit protected mode version for newer machines.

Often there was just one parallel port compared with two serial ports on a computer, and the parallel port was often connected to a printer.

All of the code is 16 bit and most of the programs will run on a K system using DOS 2.

If people had any sort of connectivity it might have been to use a bulletin board system BBS through a dial-up modem or to talk to a Novell Netware server running on their local network. Being realistic, you are not going to want to use DOS to gsneric the web.

Amd Pcnet Home Based Network Adapter Generic Driver Download

New Library of utility As a result, networking applications generally included code to talk to a few specific models of network adapters directly.

An 8-bit Western Digital WD Ethernet card from is very different from a NE clone in a PC, yet the packet drivers for each card make them look the same to the rest of the system.


Bringing it all home for release day. Here are some places to look for a packet driver for a specific Ethernet device. This section lists features that might be removed in the future releases of Oracle Solaris.

Fixed some incorrect function return values and The software interrupt to use is usually specified on the command line when the packet driver is loaded. This page barely scratches the surface of DOS networking.

Here is my set of criteria:. There are lots of factors that go into choosing networking hardware. These can also be handled by the le 4 driver if the pcn 4 driver is left out of the kernel.

Parallel ports also evolved to operate at faster and faster speeds using improved handshaking on the wires and even DMA. For 16 bit ISA bus machines you can use nearly anything.

The le 4 driver.

Packet drivers are usually specific to a particular pcnethome of Ethernet device. Of course you might have a machine new enough to have PCI slots or an Ethernet adapter on the motherboard.
