The list of network adapters from that link are very old and deprecated at this point.  It appears as though the vendor for the software needs to update their network adapter driver allowed list.  My recommendation is to reach out to the software vendor directly and request for the adapter list to be updated.

Hello NSanc3,


Thank you for posting in Intel Ethernet Communities. 


Please provide the following information that would help us in checking your request.

1.) May I know if you have a specific brand and model of laptop that you intend to purchase? 

Most likely, you will be purchasing a laptop that has LAN on Motherboard (LOM) or Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) Ethernet Controllers. For this type of Ethernet Controller, we usually refer customers to their manufacturer since they have customized drivers and software to enable or alter features on their system. They are in best position where customers with OEM system can seek assistance so they don’t lose features or customization of the Ethernet controller. 


2.) Based on the link you have provided, most of the Ethernet Controller mentioned are already Discontinued. You might encounter trouble looking for these Ethernet Controllers.


However, looking at the list, I have checked the Ethernet Controllers that are still in production and you may visit it thru links below.

Intel® 82579V Gigabit Ethernet PHY

Intel® 82579LM Gigabit Ethernet PHY

https://ark.intel.com/content/www/us/en/ark/products/47620/intel-82579lm-gigabit-ethernet-phy.html


3.) Can you share the exact model of your Ethernet Controller when you mentioned 'I have a desktop PC with one the Ethernet Controllers (Vendor ID: 0x8086)'?


Looking forward to your reply.

Hello NSanc3,


Thank you for the reply.


Looking at the link you provided, I can see that 82579V and 82579LM are on the list. These two Ethernet Controllers are still on the market. You may consider double checking with Beckhoff if it will work well with EtherCAT. Once done, you may now contact laptop manufacturers and check with them the list of laptops that has an Ethernet Controller mentioned above. 


Here is the list of Computer Manufacturer Support Websites
