I have some problems running Intel 82579 driver (E1C51CE6) in Windows CE 6.0. Communication with the ethernet interface is aparently OK but after some time connectivity is lost.
In addition I can see the following traces to be printed:
WINCE 6.0 E1Q::PhyUpdateAdaptiveIFS: Adaptive IFS exiting--adapter is stopped or resetting
ndisMResetCompleteStage2: Internal reset
I have some concerns I want to share with you:
1- I got this driver dll from "Intel® Ethernet Drivers for Microsoft* Embedded Operating Systems v12" https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/24555/Intel-Ethernet-Drivers-for-Microsoft-Embedded-Operat.... Is there any newer release of this driver?
2- I guess this controller is no more supported by Intel for Windows CE 6.0. Howerver, is it possible to get the source code of this driver?
3- Any idea related to the traces that are printed?
Any hint is appreciated!
Thank you for contacting Intel Embedded Community.

82579LM driver is used in a system running Windows CE 6.0. It is a Windows CE 6.0 image developed by our own with a BSP based on CEPC.
Thanks for the link to "Support for Intel 82579 Gigabit Ethernet Controller", the driver was downloaded from the link shown in that page.
Thanks for your reply and we apologize for the delay to provide you an update.
It is important to let you know that the Win CE 6.0 is no longer supported by the Intel(R) 82579. You can confirm this information on page 6 of the http://www.intel.com/content/dam/doc/software-support/82579-gbe-controller-software-support.pdf Intel(R) 82579 Gigabit Ethernet Controller Features Software Support Application Note v1.3 .
On the other hand, generally, the source code is unavailable to end users, however, you may try to request it by filling out the https://www-ssl.intel.com/content/www/us/en/secure/forms/design-assistance.html Request Design Assistance Form.
We hope that this information may help you.
