Menu

 

program

 

is

 

a

 

built

 

in,

 

menu-driven

 

configuration

 

program

 

that

 

you

the

 

first

 

startup

 

device

 

without

 

changing

 

settings

 

in

 

the

 

Configuration/Setup

 

Utility

 

program.

 

To

 

use

 

the

 

Boot

 

Menu

 

program,

 

complete

 

the

 

following

 

steps:

 

1.

   

Restart

 

the

 

server.

 

2.

   

Press

 

F12.

 

3.

   

Select

 

the

 

startup

the

 

startup

Configuring

 

the

 

Broadcom

 

NetXtreme

 

Gigabit

 

Ethernet

 

controller

 

The

 

Ethernet

 

controller

 

is

 

integrated

 

on

 

the

 

system

 

board.

 

It

 

provides

 

an

 

interface

 

for

 

connecting

 

to

 

a

 

10

 

Mbps,

 

100

 

Mbps,

 

or

 

1

 

Gbps

 

network

 

and

 

provides

 

full

 

duplex

 

(FDX)

 

capability,

 

which

 

enables

 

simultaneous

 

transmission

 

and

 

reception

 

of

 

data

 

on

 

the

 

network.

 

If

 

the

 

Ethernet

 

port

 

in

 

the

 

server

 

supports

 

auto-negotiation,

 

the

 

controller

 

detects

 

the

 

data-transfer

 

rate

 

(10BASE-T,

 

100BASE-TX,

 

or

 

1000BASE-T)

 

and

 

duplex

 

mode

 

(full-duplex

 

or

 

half-duplex)

 

of

 

the

 

network

 

and

 

automatically

 

operates

 

at

 

that

 

rate

 

and

 

mode.

 

You

 

do

 

not

 

have

 

to

 

set

 

any

 

jumpers

 

or

 

configure

 

the

 

controller.

 

However,

 

you

 

must

 

install

 

a

 

device

 

driver

 

to

 

enable

 

the

 

operating

 

system

 

to

 

address

 

the

 

controller.

 

For

 

device

 

drivers

 

and

 

information

 

about

 

configuring

 

the

 

Ethernet

 

controller,

the

 

Broadcom

 

NetXtreme

 

Gigabit

 

Ethernet

 

Software

 

CD

 

that

 

comes

 

with

 

the

 

server.

 

To

 

find

 

updated

 

information

 

about

 

configuring

 

the

 

controller,
