Installation instructions
Installing Drivers and Intel(R) PROSet for Windows* Device Manager

You must have administrator rights to install or use Intel PROSet for Windows Device Manager. Intel recommends the following procedure for installing drivers:
1) Cancel any Found New Hardware Wizard screens that open.
2) Start the autorun located on the CD or in your download directory.
3) Click "Install Drivers and Software" and follow the instructions in the install wizard.

Intel(R) PROSet functionality is integrated with the Windows Device Manager. To configure Intel(R) Ethernet Adapters and Controllers, open the Windows Device Manager. Do not open adapter, team, or VLAN properties from the network control panel as you may be prompted to reboot your system.

You must upgrade PROSet when upgrading drivers. Failure to do so will result in instability and missing tabs in Windows Device Manager.

For software and driver versions prior to Release 16.2, if you have Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) boot enabled on any devices in the system, you will not be able to upgrade your drivers. You must disable FCoE boot before upgrading your ethernet drivers. This issue is resolved in Release 16.2 and beyond.
Warning: Do not turn off your computer or disconnect from your power source while updating the BIOS or you may harm your computer. During the update, your computer will restart and you will briefly see a black screen.

This driver has been tested by both the independent software vendor (ISV) and Dell on the operating systems, graphics cards, and application supported by your device to ensure maximum compatibility and performance. Details

Dell recommends applying this update during your next scheduled update cycle. The update contains feature enhancements or changes that will help keep your system software current and compatible with other system modules (firmware, BIOS, drivers and software).
