Detailed Description

What' New

SW Release 23.4 resolves a potential packet data pointer issue that could occur when using Intel® Ethernet 700 Series products with certain Intel Ethernet device drivers on Microsoft Windows* Operating systems that are using “Jumbo Packet” feature with “Receive Side Coalescing” (RSC) feature.
 
The issue may lead to a data mismatch between what came in on off wire (RX port) from remote sender and what is transferred up the OS/system stack to receiver (that is, application). While most applications apply their own additional forms of data integrity checking, some may exist that don't and so may be exposed to potential data integrity issues.
 
Note: By default, “Jumbo Packet” feature is disabled (off) in Intel Windows drivers.

For more information, review TA-234.

This issue is resolved with drivers included in the SW 23.4 Release.
 
Intel recommends updating to SW 23.4 as soon as possible. However, if updating to SW 23.4 isn't convenient for you at this time, there's also an available workaround for the issue (see TA-234) for more details.
 
In addition to the availability of SW Release 23.4, we'll also be removing SW Release 23.2 and SW Release 23.1 from Intel® Download Center.
 
Note: These drivers and software are for retail versions of Intel® Ethernet Adapters.  If you don't have a retail version of an Intel® Ethernet Adapter, we recommend you work with your computer manufacturer before installing our driver.
