IBM Wireless LAN Adapter Files
   These Installation Diskettes are the most current version of this product. These images support the Wireless LAN Adapter in three hardware configurations - ISA, MCA, or PCMCIA - Configured as a Wireless Base Station, or as a Wireless Requester. 

    Wireless LAN (Advanced) - ISA/MCA Adapter, with External Transceiver, and PCMCIA Card, with External Transceiver - is 1Mbps and only has DOS & OS/2 driver support. WLLANn.EXE files are for these.

RIPL Address Range
   There are 8 possible 16K blocks of memory that can be assigned for accessing the EEPROM area of the Wireless LAN Adapter. The RIPL address range selected must not be assigned for use by any other adapter or option and cannot be the same as the RAM address for other adapters.
  <"Disable RIPL">, C000-C3FF (C000-C3FF), C400-C7FF (C400-C7FF), C800-CBFF (C800-CBFF), CC00-CFFF (CC00-CFFF), D000-D3FF (D000-D3FF), D400-D7FF (D400-D7FF), D800-DBFF (D800-DBFF), DC00-DFFF (DC00-DFFF)

Interrupt Level
   The prioritized interrupt request line on which the Wireless LAN Adapter will interrupt the system. This adapter can operate on one of four interrupt levels: 3, 9, 10, or 15.  (Ed. Remember this is an ISA/MCA card- see below!)
   The interrupt level selected must not be assigned for use by any other adapter or option. A conflict will not be indicated by an asterisk (*) and the detection must be done by the operator by checking the other adapters interrupt assignment
     <"Interrupt 10">, 15, 3, 9

DMA Arbitration Level
   This selects the priority level of the adapter when requesting the bus for a DMA data transfer. The DMA channels 0-7 are immediately associated with the respective arbitration levels. 
    <"Level 3">, 0, 1, 2, 4, 5, 6, 7

Fairness On/Off
   BUS ARBITRATION FAIRNESS:  This controls whether or not the adapter will give up participating in the next bus arbitration when it has been using it exclusively.
    <"On">, Off

I/O Base Address
   There are 63 possible I/O base addresses that can be assigned for accessing the communication registers of the IBM Wireless LAN Adapter.  The preferred I/O base address for the adapter is <0400>. Each assignment reserves the following 255 contiguous port addresses for this adapter.
  <"0400" (IO 00400h - 004FFh)>, and 63 others...
