Where can I get drivers?

Download generic drivers for Intel® 82566 Gigabit Ethernet PHY.

The software drivers are generic versions and can be used for general purposes. Your computer manufacturer can customize drivers and software to enable or alter features, or provide improved operation on your computer.

To avoid any potential installation incompatibilities on your system, check with your original equipment manufacturer (OEM) and use the software provided. Intel or the computer OEM may not provide technical support for all usage issues that may arise.

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 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).
