NIC Teaming Problem PRO/1000 GT Desktop Adapters

Community Manager

Scratching my head on this one and I've run out of things to try:

Windows XP Pro SP3

two single port PRO/1000 GT Desktop Adapters

Running latest drivers and PROSet installed

ANS tab is visible but when attempting to create a "New Team" the "No Intel server adapter or Intel integrated connection is available for teaming." messages pops up. Can't even create a single NIC team, basically no compatible adapters discovered. (doesn't the 1000 GT DEsktop support teaming?)

Have ensured all TCP/IP offloading features are turned off and both adapters are configured identical.

Have uninstalled, rebooted and reinstalled drivers and PROSet as well, with ame results: temaing finds no adapters at all, noit even the LOM.

The motherboard is an ASUS M4N78PRO with and AMD Phenom 9600 quad-core. BIOS updated to latest release.

Was thinking AMD equivalent to AMT to turn off but nothing found on this.

Anyone can provide some help?

Teaming options are supported on Intel desktop adapters if there is at least one server adapter installed. For more details about teaming and ANS, check

As I like to say, "the devil is in the details". Thanks Edward, figured it was something like that .... missed that one.
