i210 Ethernet controller linux driver for 1000Base-Kx

Hello, 

We are planning to use the i210-IS Ethernet controller for 1000Base-kx implementation. Intel provided a Linux driver, but we are not sure if it supports the 1000Base-kx or requires modification. 

Could you please confirm if the provided driver below supports 1000Base-KX?

Thanks

Hi AT82,

 

Based on the I210 datasheet, this model supports the 1000Base-KX feature. Hence, the driver package should be included with the 1000Base-kx feature.

 

You can find the datasheet and specification update link below:
