    Network Driver Issues

    I have an Intel 82564 (Intel Pro/1000 EB) network card in my server that recently updated its drivers from MS and got the self disabling bug.

    So I have now updated to the latest version from the Intel website (9.13.41.0) and it no longer disables itself but is stuck at 100Mb instead of 1Gb!

    Anyone know what I can do please?

    The plot thickens -

    Intel(R) PRO/1000 EB Network Connection with I/... Smart Speed has downgraded the link speed from the maximum advertised.

    I have no idea how you do this as there are no options for it in the driver.

    try this one, I pulled it of our SCCM/MDT/WDS driver collection, it should support that device ID and works okay for us. YMMV

    Thanks Oxide, I will give it a go after the kids have gone home. I have also logged a call with the LEA about the possibility of them forcing the port for me.

    Yay I have fixed it!

    Firstly a big DUUUUURRRR to me, as the Intel configuration bits of the driver only work when your actually at the server (and for very good reason too) and I was connecting remotely.

    And the problem?

    A damaged patch cable, swapped it to a new one and Bobs your mothers brother!

    sounds about right,! its easy to miss the simple things sometimes, especially with thousands of screaming kids and teacher which aren't much better!

    glad its sorted
