Where can I get technical support?

Computer vendors provide technical support. See Intel® Desktop Board or Intel® Server Board support for more information.

We develop network components used in motherboards and network adapters. The OEM supports network connections built into their motherboards or network adapters. We don't provide support for OEM-integrated network connections, mobile connections, or OEM adapters.
