Do Intel® Wired Ethernet Network Adapters Support Promiscuous Mode?

Solution:

Yes, all currently marketed Intel® PRO/100, Intel® PRO/1000, Intel® Gigabit, Intel® PRO/10 Gigabit, and Intel® 10 Gigabit adapters support Promiscuous mode. A network management agent or other software (such as "Network sniffer") is required to tell the OS to turn on the promiscuous mode support. Users cannot enable or disable the support.

Note In some cases it is necessary to make setting changes to the OS running the packet capture software so that tagged Ethernet frames are passed up without stripping the tags.
