Opening the adapter properties

This procedure can't identify the adapter if there's no driver installed. If you need the latest driver, 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® 10 provides information about the network adapter and driver on the computer. Follow these steps to open the adapter properties:

  1. Right-click the Start button.

  2. Click Device Manager from the list.
