I had a pair of I210 NICs (a dual-NIC motherboard) teamed via Static Link Aggregation and all was working fine until today when Windows 10 x64 decided to apply the April 2018 cumulative update. The page providing the respective drivers with ANS support (https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/25016/Intel-Network-Adapter-Driver-for-Windows-10?product=... https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/25016/Intel-Network-Adapter-Driver-for-Windows-10?product=...) states that the latest version is 23.1 (dated 2018-02-21). Even with this latest driver, however, I can re-create the team, but it cannot be enabled. The only way to keep things in a sort of working state is to disable one of the NICs as well as the virtual team interface and keep only the other NIC active (i.e., not an ideal scenario).
Is there any chance that a new version of the driver will be available soon?
I learned my lesson a couple of years ago. Whenever a major Windows update is in the works, suspend updates. Once you're ready to take the leap, remove any NIC teams. Then update.
If you don't remove the teams before the update, you will likely not be able to recreate teams even after a driver update. In the end, reinstalling Windows tends to be the only solution. I've spent a frustrating number of hours failing to fix the issue with deep dives into the registry.
Note: If the page still shows 23.1 either give it time to refresh or use this direct link to the https://downloadmirror.intel.com/22283/eng/23_2.zip 23.2 file
This download is the complete driver pack for all supported Operating Systems. The OS specific download records (Webpacks) will be available next week.
This release brings support for Windows 10 Redstone 4 (RS4). If you updated to Windows 10 (RS4) prior to this release and experienced problems creating ANS Teams and VLANs, please update to SW release 23.2.
Intel Ethernet Team
After 2 hours of fighting still no Teaming. "Creating New Team Failed". I tried Device Manager and PowerShell (output on bottom).
New Intel(R) Advanced Network Services Virtual Adapter was created but nothing else.
Strange thing ... Drivers Date: 10.10.2017 Drivers version: 126.96.36.199
Documentation does not contain any trace of new version 23.2 - maybe by mistake or rush
I'll try with new Windows 10 installation tommorow. Meanwhile... Any advice or directions???
PS C:\WINDOWS\system32> New-IntelNetTeam
cmdlet New-IntelNetTeam at command pipeline position 1
Supply values for the following parameters:
TeamMemberNames: Intel(R) Ethernet Server Adapter I350-T2

This worked flawlessly for me. Old driver was uninstalled and the new driver was installed. The Team was removed prior to uninstall/install process. Once installed and after I rebooted I set up the team again, The team requires the switch be set up with LACP before the host is configured, so make sure the switch is re-configured prior to re-creating the team.
Just got my Static LAG group going again (win10 Pro I211+I218). I downloaded the "23.2" zip file. Readme in the zip file says:
"Intel(R) Network Connections Software Version 23.2 Release Notes
May 4, 2018
This release includes software and drivers for Intel(R) adapters and integrated
Is everyone sure they got the right file? When I clicked the other link it only had 23.1 still.
