I have an old Intel pro/1000 PT quad port installed in my desktop computer Windows 8.1 Pro. All ports works great, but i want to manage VLAN. I've read that was possible with Vista, but became impossible since built-in Microsoft drivers.
I tried to cheat, forcing install driver as Intel I210-T1 Gbe (from NDIS64) and after install PROWinx64 for Intel Advanced Network Services work without error.
The NIC with "bad driver" works good. In properties of the hardware, i can see the VLAN tab. I can create a new VLAN (a virtual NIC will be created). I can configure IPv4 of this virtual NIC. But when I enable this NIC nothing happened, stay disabled.
Any ideas ? Thank you.
Thank you for contacting Intel.
Intel® PRO/1000 PT Quad Port Server Adapter has in-box support only. Advanced Network Services (ANS) driver for teaming and VLANS are not included with in-box support. So even you were able to force install the driver, it still doesn't work.
