Abstract:

This report describes a deficient engineering design in the Ethernet transceiver drop cable connector on the PC-2001 NIC. Problems in the sliding lock and connector mechanism on the PC-2001 NIC Network Interface Card can prevent the terminal from accessing the network and can lead to premature failure of the NIC. The PC-2001 NIC must be modified to properly locate the connector assembly to ensure proper card placement in the computer. This will prevent early NIC failure and help ensure the terminal has access to the network. This modification would be difficult to implement in the field.
