Intel Ethernet Drivers and Utilities
This project contains the Linux kernel drivers for all Intel(R) Ethernet adapters and LOMs (LAN On Motherboard). To learn more about Intel Ethernet visit http://communities.intel.com/community/wired
- e1000e driver
- ixgbe and ixgbevf driver
- igb and igbvf driver
- i40e and i40evf drivers
- lldpad daemon
- ethregs register dump utility
- e1000 driver: The e1000 driver is changed to a kernel only support model. (The latest release of e1000 driver was version 8.0.35)
I cannot comment on the driver as I could not get it work on Ubuntu. I thought i'd give it a go, even though I knew it wasn't apart of the supported list. Ubuntu 14.04, 3.13.0-24-generic kernel, Intel Corporation Ethernet Connection I217-V (rev 05). **UPDATE** Booting without the cable plugged in helped!
For older non-current CentOS boot kernel (such as 1 or 2 sub-revisions behind), you're forced to install the full-source CentOS linux kernel into /usr/src/linux. Cannot rely on 'kernel-devel' package then. Certainly, not Intel's fault. but it works very well.
Easy for use.
