Where can I get drivers?

Your computer manufacturer might have customized drivers and software to enable or alter features, or provide improved operation on your computer.

Contact the manufacturer for the latest updates and technical support information. If you can no longer get driver support from your computer manufacturer, you can check this page for what OSs are supported with our generic Intel drivers: Supported Operating Systems for Intel® Ethernet Controllers (LOM).

Where can I get technical support?

Computer vendors provide technical support. See Intel® Desktop Board and Intel® Server Board support information.

We develop network components used in motherboards and network adapters sold by original equipment manufacturers (OEM) such as Dell, HP, Gateway, or IBM. Network connections built into the motherboard or network adapters sold by an OEM are supported by the OEM. We do not support OEM integrated network connections, mobile connections, or OEM adapters.

Your OEM supports Network components listed as a Network Connection (example: Intel® 82566DC-2 Gigabit Network Connection).

    Where can I find product briefs, datasheets, application notes, design guides, and other developer resources?

    See product information on Intel® Ethernet Controllers.
