Level of Importance:Optional

Dell recommends the customer review specifics about the update to determine if it applies to your system. The update contains changes that impact only certain configurations, or provides new features that may/may not apply to your environment.

Important Information

The Broadcom NetXtreme II devices require two system drivers, one is the VBD or Virtual Bus Device driver and the other is the NDIS Client driver. Due to this architecture, the Windows drivers for NetXtreme II are provided in an InstallShield package, for ease of installation. To install the drivers, just run the setup.exe in this package. If an unattended install or remote install is required, the individual Plug and Play drivers can be extracted from the installer by running the setup.exe with the option "/a". This will extract the drivers to a specified directory. Please see the included files in the ReadMeFirst directory in this package for further information and instructions. Due to the complexity of the drivers and dependencies on the application (BACS) and the intermediate driver and the fact that both the NetXtreme I and NetXtreme II drivers use the same intermediate drivers and application, the Broadcom network drivers are versioned with a family version and not the file version of an actual driver file. The package version is the driver family version when inventoried by the Dell Update Package and other Dell Version management utilities. This family version contains NetXtreme I and NetXtreme II Drivers as well as the applications and other files that are used to run, manage and track the network devices. The family version for this release is 16.0.0. To check the version of individual files included in this release, please see the Release.txt in the ReadMeFirst directory.
