Overview

Welcome to the Intel Network Adapter Online User Guide. This guide covers hardware and software installation, setup procedures, and troubleshooting tips for the Intel PRO/1000 and PRO/100 family of Server Adapters.

Installing the Network Adapter

If you are installing a network adapter, follow this procedure from step 1.
If you are upgrading the driver software, start with step 4.

  1. Review system requirements.
  2. Follow the procedure in Put the Network Adapter(s) in the Server.
  3. Carefully connect the network cable(s).
  4. After the network adapter is in the server, install the network drivers.
  5. For Windows* and Red Hat Linux* Advanced Server 2.1 systems, install the Intel® PROSet software
  6. Test the network adapter.

Ethernet MAC Addresses

Single-Port Adapters

The Ethernet address should be printed on the identification sticker on the front of the card.

Dual-port Adapters

Dual port adapters have two Ethernet addresses. The address for the first port (port A or 1) is printed on a label on the component side of the adapter. Add one to this address to obtain the value for the second port (port B or 2).

Integrated Adapters

On a system with the LAN integrated on the motherboard, the identification sticker is usually located on the motherboard near the network connector.

Standards

More information on IEEE 802 standards available at http://www.ieee802.org.

IEEE 802.3ac VLANs:

VLANs require VLAN-capable switches either implicit (switch only) or explicit (IEEE 802.3ac). IEEE 802.3ac VLANs allow multiple VLANs per adapter or team since both the switch and adapter use a tag in the packet header to sort VLANs.

Intel PRO/1000 adapters fully support implicit and explicit VLANs.


Please read all restrictions and disclaimers.
