Intel Pro 1000PT Quad Port Teaming

Hey!

So I bought two of these NICs and a Dell PowerConnect 2816 to connect two computers with up to a 4Gigabit connection when teamed. The issue is, I can't seem to get the drivers to install properly in windows. ProSet seems to instal for my motherboard built in NIC, which is also INTEL Gigabit-but I dont wan't to team that-I just want a team of the 4 ports on the add in card. According to every single thing I have seen on google, there should be a teaming tab when I click "configure" on one of the Pro 1000PT connections, but it doesn't seem to exist anywhere, and Windows installs the drivers for the device automatically. I have tried installing the latest drivers, but again, it just shows the default Windows drivers installed. Help!

Thanks so much,

Rowan

Hi Helloman,

 

 

Thank you for the information. The PRO 1000 PT Quad port adapter does not support PROSet software in Windows 10, you may refer to this website

 

for reference https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000020905/network-and-i-o/ethernet-products.... As listed in the table, under Full Support, ther PRO 1000 PT adapter is marked as "No" which means the network adapter does not have full software

 

support in Windows 10 for you to configure the teaming, it only has the driver for you to install the NIC in Windows 10.

 

 

Please feel free to update me if you need clarification. Thank you.
