The Easy Way to Make Your Network Connections

For quick installation, superior performance and economical price, there's EtherEZ(tm), the best ISA Ethernet network cards we've ever made. According to XXCAL Test Laboratories, EtherEZ installs in less than thirty seconds, and its performance rivals that of any competitor!

These 16-bit network cards have been designed with such flexibility, they can be installed with equal ease in any ISA computer. They're fully auto-configurable in new Plug and Play (PnP) computers (simply install the adapter and power up), and can be configured in just a single step in older, non-PnP computers. They're also faster than any ISA card we've ever made, thanks to Simulcasting(tm) technology, SMC's unique pipelined data transfer technique.

EtherEZ's drivers are just as flexible and easy to use as the network cards themselves. The drivers are compatible with all previous generation SMC and Western Digital Ethernet network cards, so there's no need to keep track of which driver works with which SMC adapter.
And, you can be sure that EtherEZ will work with your network, because it ships with the best driver selection in the industry and supports hundreds of networking environments, including Windows 95.

So, whether you've been using SMC's network cards for years or have never installed an adapter before, EtherEZ is the easy choice. Choose from four models: a 10BASE-T adapter with an RJ-45 connector for unshielded twisted-pair cabling; a 10BASE2 adapter with a BNC connector for thin coax cabling; a 2-port combo adapter with BNC and RJ-45 connectors; and a 3-port combo adapter with BNC, RJ-45 and AUI connectors.
