Chapter 4 Hands-On Project 4-2 1. From my Windows XP I clicked on Start, then Control Panel, and then I doubled clicked to open Network Connection because mine did not say Network and Internet Connection. 2. I right clicked on Local Areas Connections and the Local Area Connection property box opened and then I clicked on Properties. 3. In the Connect using section the name of the interface that is on my computer is Intel® 82566DC Gigabit Network Connection 4. I clicked on Configure, Intel® 82566DC Gigabit Network Connection property box opened and then I clicked on the advanced tab. 5. The Advanced tab shows the NIC that I have installed. The names in the Settings are: Gigabit Master Slave Mode - Determines whether the adapter or link partner is designated as the master. The other device is designated as the slave. By default, the IEEE 802.3ab specification defines how conflicts are handled. Multi-port devices such as switches have higher priority over single port devices and are assigned as the master. If both devices are multi-port devices, the one with higher seed bits becomes the master. If you wish to not use this automatic determination of which device is the slave or master, change this setting. Setting this to either Force Master Mode or Force Slave Mode overrides the auto detection of slave and master designations. Changing the setting may improve link quality with certain link partners. CAUTION: Some multi-port devices may be forced to Master Mode. If the adapter is connected to such a device and is configured to "Force Master Mode", link is not established. Forcing the adapter to master or slave setting can break link if the link partner is not configured correctly. Value: Auto Detect Force Master Mode Force Slave Mode Locally Administered Address - CAUTION: The Locally Administered Address replaces the MAC address for this network adapter. Make sure no other systems on the network use this address. This virtual address does not change the burned-in (physical) address on the adapter. To enter a new network address, type a 12-digit hexadecimal number in the Value box. Range 0000 0000 0001 - FEFF FFFF FFFF Usage Considerations Do not use a multicast address (least significant bit of the high byte = 1). For example, in the address 0Y123456789A, "Y" cannot be an odd number. (Y must be 0, 2, 4, 6,
