USBLAN v2.4.6 released

An evaluation version of Belcarra's USBLAN is now available from Windows Update for Windows 8/8.1 users.

To use this demo version of USBLAN for Windows the device will need to offer Vendor and Product ID’s as follows:
  • Vendor ID 0x15ec (Belcarra)
  • Product ID 0xd041 (DHCP on for all protocols, overriding the DHCPDType flag), or 0xd042 (DHCP always off, see section 5.4.1 of the OEM manual)
To get the driver, simply ensure that the Windows system is connected to the Internet, plug the device in (configured with the correct VID/PID) and let Windows search Windows Update.  The protocol (CDC-ECM, CDC-EEM, CDC-NCM, RNDIS) is automatically detected. The INF file of the USBLAN evaluation driver creates global variables in the registry using Service name BelcarraDemoUSBLAN. These parameters can be modified later using RegEdit (see Section 5.2ff in the OEM Manual).  As noted above, the parameter DHCPDType in the demo is inferred from the Product ID and in particular setting it in the registry has no effect.

Please note this is an evaluation version only and will run for 30 minutes at a time. It must be re-plugged to continue use after time expires.
