The Echelon LonTalk PCC-10 PCMCIA Network Adapter will not work with a Dell E6410 laptop

Environment

Resolution

To correct this, an entry needs to be added into the Windows registry.

Option 1

  1. Download a Windows registry import file from The Exchange.
  2. Navigate through Products > Satchwell > Sigma or MicroNet > Downloads > Hot Fix
    (Or you can download the file from here).
  3. Once downloaded, double click the file and the entry will automatically be added.
  4. Reboot the computer before the entry is read.

Option 2

Manually add the entry into your registry.

Use caution when making changes to the Windows registry. Mistakes can be fatal to the operating system.

To manually add the entry, carry out the following:

  1. Go to Start > Run and use “regedit” to open the Windows registry.
  2. Navigate through to
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\
    CurrentControlSet
    Services
    Pcmcia
    Parameters
  3. Add a new DWORD entry called “IrqRouteToPciController”
  4. Modify the new entry and give it a hexadecimal value of 8
  5. Reboot the computer before the entry is read.

If option 1 or 2 do not resolve the issue, it may be necessary to perform the following:

 Option 3

  1. Open the registry editor.
  2. Go to the registry entry
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{68EE3401-D4CA-11D3-8DBB-0060082936F2}
    or
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{68EE3401-D4CA-11D3-8DBB-0060082936F2}\0000
    and look for the key name "PcmciaExclusiveIrq".
  3. Delete the key name "PcmciaExclusiveIrq" (If it exists).
  4. You may need to reboot the PC.
