I am trying to set up VLANs on one of our PCs. That PC is based on a DG33FB motherboard with a 82566dc-2 NIC running Windows 10. The properties of the NIC show VLAN and Priority enabled but I unable to select the VLAN itself. I understand that that I need advanced network services ANS) installed with the NIC driver.
The driver now in use is a Microsoft one without the ANS support. So I downloaded the latest PROSET driver, ran it for it to report no Proset NIC found. So I tried a manual install unpacking the PROSET driver and set the install point to the PRO1000 folder and on trying to install it ended up with Windows report that the best driver was already installed. If I search the driver files I see this NIC listed in several .inf files in NDIS62 & 64 and if I select either of these (using pick from list option) I am presented with a list of models (I218-LM etc) but not my NIC.
Any help suggestions much appreciated.
