If your network has a mix of legacy and modern computing capabilities, each port allows for 10Mbps standard Ethernet, Mbps Fast Ethernet, or Mbps Gigabit Ethernet connections. You have the latest technology available to every computer and device connected to your network.
Notes on the Xircom PE3 Pocket Ethernet 3 Description The Xircom PE3 series adapters are Ethernet adapters from the early s designed for notebook computers that needed Ethernet but did not have any internal expansion slots.
They worked by using the the parallel port as an expansion bus, which is not as fast as having a real Ethernet adapter on a card but it is fast enough for most uses. While designed for notebook computers they will work on any machine with a parallel port, which is great for machines that have limited or no expansion slots available.
It also makes it useful for machines where you want an Ethernet connection but you don't want to go through the hassle of opening the case and installing a card. There are three models in the PE3 series: The only difference is in how they connect to your Ethernet.
The 10B2 or the 10BC version using Thin Ethernet can use an older style of Ethernet called "ThinNet" which some older hubs support, but it is not as common anymore. I discuss the DOS packet driver parameters on this page - for the others you have to refer to the user manual.
The software can be found here: Parallel ports and Power The parallel port does not provide enough power to operate the device so an additional source of power is needed.
There were two methods for powering the device: Your normal keyboard could still attach through the pass-through connector on the cable. The choice of parallel port makes a difference on performance. The design shows up in the performance of the Xircom - on a slower machine you will find that the Xircom can send data twice as fast as it can read it.
Later parallel ports improved by allowing the parallel port to read a full byte at a time, thus making reading from attached device the same speed as writing. And even later parallel ports introduced an "EPP" Enhanced Parallel Port mode which make the handshaking between the parallel port and the device more efficient, boosting the transfer rate.
Standard ports work, but they are half as slow when receiving data as compared to sending data. The Xircom does not provide a pass-thru for a printer or other parallel port device.
I recommend plugging it directly into the parallel port, and not in a daisy chain behind other devices like a Zip drive, SCSI adapter, or any other parallel port device with a pass-thru connection. Do not connect the Xircom to a parallel port while the computer is turned on.
Parallel ports are not designed for that and you can damage them if you add and remove devices while the power is on. Packet driver usage All of the drivers for this adapter can be found at Intel's support site: According to the documention it is supposed to be able to find the Xircom adapter and configure itself automatically.
