This is brought on by an more mature driver problem. Unfortunately, theD-Link DFE-530TX cannot run below the NDIS 4.0 driver in Win95 (950 and 95A). centered for the microsof company specification, the Win95 (950 and (95A) demands the NDIS 3.0 driver. house windows 95 OSR2 and house windows 98 need the NDIS 4.0 driver.

Follow the subsequent actions to fix this bug:

Step 1: Remove the DFE-530TX adapter in Network Configuration.

Step 2: Delete the NETDLFET.INF file in the \WINDOWS\INF directory.

Step 3: Delete the DLDFET.SYS fiel in the \WINDOWS\SYSTEM directory.

Step 4: Restart the computer and allow Windows 95 to auto-detect the DFE-530TX. If using Win950 or Win95A, poin to the Netdlfet.inf file inside the Win95 folder on the driver diskette. If using Win95B or Win98, point to the Netdlfet.inf file on the root of the driver diskette.

Step 5: provide the Win95 or Win98 compact disk and make particular that all documents are found out near to the compact disk or driver diskette.

Step 6: before to restarting, confirm in equipment Manager below system Adapters how the DFE-530TX is utilizing the readily available assets and confirm how the system Configuration has the corrrect clients, protocols, and document and printer sharing.

If this does not work, the only other dilemma is definitely an IRQ conflict.

1.install the DFE-530TX+ network adapter in MAC OSX

Step 1 Power down the computer and disconnect the power cable.

Step 2 Remove the left side panel of the case.

Step 3 Insert the DFE-530TX+ into an available PCI slot and tighten the screw until the DFE-530TX+ is securely in place.

Step 4 Replace the side panel and turn computer on.

Step 5 Insert the DFE-530TX+ installation CD into the CD-ROM drive.

Step 6 Open the CD-ROM icon on the desktop that appears displaying DFE-530TX+ just below the icon.

Step 7 Open the Macintosh folder.

Step 8 Open the DFE-530TX+ driver for MAC OS.

Step 9 Open the installer program.

Step 10 Click on install to complete the installation process.

2.install the DFE-530TX+ network adapter in Linux Red Hat

Note: New Distributions of Linux support this card with built-in drivers and near auto-installation.

Follow these instructions to install the DFE-530TX+ Rev. D1 and D2 in Red Hat 6.x.

The Readme.txt file has excellent instructions for more advanced users in Red Hat 6.x and up.

For novice users, the following step-by-step instructions should suffice, assuming the floppy is mounted.

$ cd floppy
$ cp rtl8139.c /root(or any temp directory)
$ cd /root
$ gcc -DMODULE -D__KERNEL__ -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -O6 -c rtl8139.c `[ -f /usr/include/linux/modversions.h ] && echo -DMODVERSIONS`


$ insmod rtl8139.o

At this point the drivers have been installed and inserted. Configure the network properties of the card according to your current network settings.

For Red Hat 7.0 the install is a little trickier because of a known issue with the default install of the OS.

The workaround is as follows:

First, you must change the following file: /usr/include/linux/modversions.h Using any text editor such as PICO or vi, insert the following line into this file:

#include linux/modsetver.h

Then continue with the compilation and install:

cd floppy
cp rtl8139.c /root(or any temp directory)
cd /root
gcc -I /usr/src/linux/include -DMODULE -D__KERNEL__ -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -O6 -c rtl8139.c `[ -f /usr/include/linux/modversions.h ] && echo -DMODVERSIONS`


insmod rtl8139.o
