Windows device driver information for cLAN Host Adapter

cLAN Host Adapters are linked to Windows NT operating systems by way of Giganet drivers. The drivers involved include the Network Driver Interface Specification or NDIS driver, and the VIA driver. All current networking protocols (such as TCP/IP) are able to operate over the cLAN interconnection. The utilization of TCP/IP is possible through the Giganet NDIS drivers. Giganet-incorporated software observes the cLAN while resolving any issues as they happen, even while no active data transfer occurs. Nodes can be added or removed to any working cluster or cLAN fabric. The cLAN fabric may comprise a whole server cluster. The aforementioned software is able to identify removed or new nodes, reconfiguring the system as it sees fit. The cLAN Host Adapter manages administrative functions within a system of dispersed servers and optimizes the scalability of vast dynamic-application environments. cLAN Host Adapters are linked to Windows NT operating systems by way of Giganet drivers. The drivers involved include the Network Driver Interface Specification or NDIS driver, and the VIA driver.

Outdated Drivers?

Unless you update your drivers regularly you may face hardware performance issues.

To check your drivers you should manually verify every device on your system for driver updates

There are two available models of the cLAN Host Adapter. These are the cLAN 1000 Host Adapter and the cLAN 1020 Host Adapter. These two devices are PCI-compliant 32 / 64 bit network interface cards which bridge servers based on Windows NT. The two cLAN Host Adapter devices are virtually identical, differing only slightly in connector type and media. A 30m link supported by a copper port is used by cLAN 1000, while a 3km link is made possible by a fiber-optic port in the cLAN 1020. Both cLAN Host Adapters feature whole duplex network interfaces of up to 1.25Gbs, app-to-app data transmission via the Virtual Interface Architecture technology (which allows app software direct communication with adapter interface, surpassing the operating system while optimizing data output), NDIS drivers for various NT versions, the cLAN Management Console system for managing network nodes and switching components, high-bandwidth and low CPU overhead, the SNMP extension, and long-distance link lengths. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and cLAN Host Adapter errors before installing any driver updates.
