Tech Note 33 Detail

AIB interface does not work with network cards

Affected Products:

CI-6500 Interface (IBM)

Problem/Symptom:
When installing the CI-6500 interfaces on 486 computers, the interface card will not work when the network card is installed and visa-versa.

PASCO Solution:
The network card calls for IRQ 5, and there is a resistor in the IRQ 5 position on the AIB board. The new Sunset boards come with the IRQ 5 resistor installed. If the IRQ5 resistor is interfering with a device using IRQ5, remove the resistor from the Sunset board. This will not affect the operation of the CI-6500 interface.
