Identify driver versions for Ethernet adapters in Windows XP* or Server 2003*

Note This procedure cannot identify the adapter if there is no driver installed.

If your Ethernet adapter is unknown, try downloading the latest driver by:

  1. Use Intel® Device Update Utility to automatically identify and find the latest drivers.
  2. If Intel® Device Update Utility fails, choose your Windows version from the Drivers and Software list. These downloads cover most Intel® Ethernet Adapters and install the latest drivers when you run them.

Use one of the following methods to access the network adapter properties in Microsoft Windows XP* or Windows Server 2003*.

Note The Link Speed tab referenced in the steps below does not display if Intel® PROSet is not installed.
