Why do they say that? I have the following PCI/PCI-X dual NIC running in a PCI slot, with Windows 7 as the O/S and teaming works just fine: http://www.coreprocessor.net/Products/Server/Adapters/PRO1000MT-DualPort/PRO1000MT-DualPort-overview... http://www.coreprocessor.net/Products/Server/Adapters/PRO1000MT-DualPort/PRO1000MT-DualPort-overview...

Interesting. I never saw this work before. I am very curious about the driver and software versions you are using.
On the adapter's Link Speed tab, what is your PROSet version?
What is your driver version on the adapter?
What is your driver version on the team?
Mark H @ Intel
Proset: 220.127.116.11Adapter Driver: 18.104.22.168 (Date: 23/09/2008) Team Driver: 22.214.171.124 (Date: 6/04/2011) I installed the latest PROWinx64 installer from Intel. When I first tried to execute it I got an error about the driver, so I extracted the "PRO1000" driver files from the installer and updated the adapter drivers manually via Device Manager (The Intel driver replaced an older Microsoft driver). Then I re-tried the PROWinx64 installer and it installed without a hitch.
You should be able to get version 16.4 from the Intel Download Center. Search on http://downloadcenter.intel.com/SearchResult.aspx?lang=eng&keyword=%2216.4+proset%22 16.4 proset. If you get 16.3 in the download, then you are probably seeing a cached copy. Try clearing out your browser's cache.
