Identify your adapter in Windows 7*

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.

The network adapter property sheet in Windows 7* provides information about the network adapter and driver on the computer.

Use one of the following methods to access the Windows device manager for information on the network adapter, driver version, and Intel® PROSet version.
