Q1. Why is Intel no longer offering the PRO/100B T4 LAN Adapter?
A1. This adapter is being discontinued due to customer preference for 100base TX standard based products, such as the Intel® PRO/100 S Desktop Adapter (PILA8460C3).

Q2. How long will Intel provide drivers for the PRO/100B T4 LAN Adapter?
A2. It is Intel's plan that the driver suite for the PRO/100 S LAN Adapter family will continue to be backward compatible with the PRO/100B T4 LAN Adapter.

A3. Interactive support for this product has been discontinued. Free technical troubleshooting information will continue via our online services through February 2004.

Q4. What if I have problems with my PRO/100B LAN Adapter and need an RMA. Will you still honor the warranty?
A4. The PRO/100B LAN Adapter has a Limited Lifetime Warranty, which Intel will continue to honor. Adapters replaced under the Warranty will be replaced with the same or similar product.

Q5. Since Intel will no longer offer the PRO/100B LAN Adapter, are you recommending a different product?
A5. Intel no longer manufactures any 100base T4 compliant adapters. We recommend upgrading to 1000base TX products, such as the Intel® PRO/1000 MT Desktop adapter ( PWLA8390MT ).
