Can intel I210 device be upgraded using the tool found here : "https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/24769/Non-Volatile-Memory-NVM-Update-Utility-for-Intel-Eth..." ? I see upon running this tool that it has options to upgrade firmware for "Intel(R) I210 Gigabit Network Connection" and "Intel(R) I210 Gigabit Backplane Connection". However, whenever I run it says "Update not available" for I210 device. Also, when reading this document "https://www.intel.com/content/dam/www/public/us/en/documents/faqs/ethernet-controller-i210-i211-faq...." I found that EEUPDATE is supposed to be used. I am confused here - which utulity has to be used - the NVMUpdate utility or the EEUPDATE ?
From my system:
#ethtool -i eth0
firmware-version: 3.25, 0x800005d1
