Lanstreamers Under W95
Peter Wendt says:
   For what it's worth: if you have an IBM LAN-Streamer adapter (any of the adapters shown below) and want to install them under Win95, you need TRPALS4.EXE Auto LAN-Streamer PCI (!) NDIS3 Driver Disk Ver 1.03
   The Win95 subdir contains a W95SETUP.INF, which also includes the files / settings for these MCA-cards as well:

8FA0  IBM LANStreamer MC 32 Adapter
8FA2  IBM Auto LANStreamer MC 32 Adapter
8FA8  IBM EtherStreamer MC 32 Adapter
8FAA  IBM Dual Auto LANStreamer MC 32 Adapter
8FAB  IBM Dual EtherStreamer MC 32 Adapter
8FA4  IBM LANStreamer MC 16 Adapter

Works great with a Auto LAN MC32 in my TR-Network under Win95.
Improves data-thoughput quite a lot.

Notify that you should use an IRQ above 8 for the 32-bit adapters.

Lanstreamers Under NT 4
   If you mean LANStreamer Adapter/A (not PCI) you should put it in slot 1 hrough 7, not in slot 8. Use NT SP2 or later and the latest NDIS-drivers from
and it should work. The problem is a known bug and it's described in the following documents from Microsoft:

Q156324  Differences in Slot #s
Q167632  Failures after applying SP2 (Apply SP3 instead!)

Lanstreamer On Split Bus
   Compatibility problems have been encountered when installing the adapter in a split bus (MC/PCI) system; this resulted in a hardware change on the adapter and several device driver updates.
   The updated adapter carries a FRU level of 42H2706 or 42H2716 (depending on geography). IBM systems affected are:
             6575-xxx                      8639-Mxx
             6585-xxx                      8640-Mxx
             6876-xxx                      8641-MZx
             6886-xxx                      8641-MDx

Lanstreamer Microcode Levels
    The microcode has a common base and evolves; therefore, changes are cumulative. Some changes are based on adding new adapters to the Streamer family (adding PCI adapters, multi port adapters). Significant functional changes between levels are as follows.

AC-B3 Fixes to ethernet full duplex operation
B3-B4 Corrected error code 0800 (ICD bus parity error)
B4-C0,C3 Reprioritized handling of frames based on frame types to prevent timeouts in managed networks
C4-C7 Fix to RIPL
C7-CB Changes how AutoSense works (see NOTE below)
CB-CC Adds TRFDX (token-ring Full Duplex) support - "BETA"
CC-CG Changes to TRFDX, fix a cable sense problem in 'CC', fixes to RPL on PCI adapters
CG-D0 Minor changes for FDX Draft 4 compatability

NOTE: To establish compatability with some speed-detecting hubs (ie. 3Com and Synoptics) the AUTOSENSE algorithm has been changed. Microcode prior to 'CB' would allow an adapter set to AUTOSENSE, which had a 'saved speed', to be the first to open on a ring; this is no longer the case. It is still recommended that any servers have their adapters set to fixed speeds (16 or 4).

   Adapter diagnostic failures, adapter checks, the amber LED on solid, or the adapter being dropped in a managed network are all indications that a microcode upgrade could fix the problem

AdapterId 8FA2 IBM Auto LANStreamer MC 32 Adapter

Adapter Data Rate
   This Adapter can operate at two different data rates: 4 or 16 Mbps.  The choices are Autosense, in which the adapter determines the data rate, 16 Mbps data rate, and 4 Mbps data rate.
    <"Autosense">, 16 Mbps, 4 Mbps

Interrupt Level
   Interrupt level that the adapter will use to interrupt the system unit. 
   NOTE...If multiple Auto LANStreamer adapters are present in the system, they must all be set to the same interrupt level."
     <"Interrupt  3" >, 2, 10, 11

Adapter I/O Address Range
   MCA I/O address range of the adapter.  For MCA I/O cycles, this adapter is selected when the MCA I/O address is within a 256 byte region. If more than one adapter is used in your computer, each adapter must be assigned a separate I/O address range.
    < "1C00-1CFF">, then more choices than Carter's got liver pills...

Remote Program Load Address Range
   This adapter RPL memory space is relocatable within Micro Channel memory space. The adapter memory space may be located on any 16K boundary from hex 000C 0000 to 000D C000.
    <"Disabled">, C0000-C3FFF, C4000-C7FFF, C8000-CBFFF, CC000-CFFFF, D0000-D3FFF, D4000-D7FFF, D8000-DBFFF, DC000-DFFFF

Streaming Data Select
   This Adapter can operate with or without Data Streaming.  For best performance, select <Enabled>.
    < "Enabled">, Disabled

   The adapter will share the bus equitably with other devices or retain control of the bus as needed.
    <"Fairness ON ">, Fairness OFF

Arbitration Level
   This adapter can operate on one of thirteen arbitration levels: 1, 2, 3 or 5 thru E. If more than one adapter is used in your computer, each adapter must be assigned a separate arbitration level.
     <"Level 1">, 2, 3,4,5,6,7,8,9,A,B,C,D,E

Parity Enable/Monitor Feedback
   Micro Channel Parity Enable/Monitor Slave devices feedback signal: This adapter provides the capability of generating and checking data and address parity.  In addition, this adapter also provides the capability of monitoring slave device's Selected Feedback Return Exception signals during DMA operations
    <"Parity OFF/Monitor OFF">, Parity ON /Monitor OFF, Parity OFF/Monitor ON, Parity ON /Monitor ON
