1                     Power off the NetLink unit and disconnect the power cable from the unit.

2                     Disconnect all Cables: Attach a tag to each cable to indicate the name of the port where the cable was installed. This will simplify the process of reconnecting cables when the NIC installation is complete.

3                     Remove Top Cover: The Top Cover is held in place by four screws; two screws on each end of the unit.

4                     Find the Network Card Slot: The Network Card slot is located on the riser card above the Modem card.


a) No Modem: If your unit does not include a modem, position the NetLink with the front panel facing toward you. The Network Card slot is the uppermost card slot on the left hand side of the unit.

b) First Time Installation: If you are installing an NIC for the first time, there will be a cover over the Network Card slot on the NetLink back panel. Locate the NIC slot on the back panel (the very top slot), and then remove the cover from the slot.

c) NIC Replacement: If you are replacing a Network card, remove the old NIC from the slot. First remove the screw which secures the card to the back panel, and then carefully pull the old card out of the slot.

5. Install the Network Card: First align the NIC in the slot, and then apply firm pressure to make certain that the card is properly seated. Use the hold-down screw provided with the card to securely fasten the card to the back panel.
