Incorrect I/O Address Detected on SMC Elite+ Network Adapter

  • Microsoft Windows for Workgroups 3.11

This article was previously published under Q106713


If you are upgrading to Windows for Workgroups 3.11 on a system that is running Microsoft Workgroup Connections 1.0 and has an SMC Elite+ network adapter, the correct I/O address may not be detected for the SMC adapter.

If the SMC Elite+ network adapter is not configured to use the default 0x280h I/O address, you must select the correct setting when Setup prompts you for confirmation.


To determine the I/O address for the network adapter, Windows for Workgroups 3.11 Setup examines the existing PROTOCOL.INI file in use by Workgroup Connections 1.0. If the network adapter is an SMC Elite+, the I/O address is not found in the PROTOCOL.INI file. (The SMC Elite+ NDIS2 driver for use with Workgroup Connections 1.0 does not require that an I/O address be stored in the PROTOCOL.INI file.)

Since an I/O address is not found in the PROTOCOL.INI file, the default I/O address of the SMC Elite+ network adapter is selected and you are given an opportunity to confirm this selection.
