Driver Details

Broadcom NetXtreme Family of Adapters, v.7.100, A00-7.7

Windows 2003 base and intermediate (teaming) driver for the Broadcom network devices, Family Driver Version 7.7.

Fixes & Enhancements

This release fixes some minor teaming issue when utilizing a standby adapter in and disabling the primary adapters and restoring them to the team, removing and restoring the primary adapters many times may cause the team to stop passing traffic.

This release also adds a new feature to SLB teaming
The purpose of LiveLink is to detect link loss beyond the switch and to route traffic only through team members that have a live link. This function is accomplished though the teaming software (for Windows operating systems, see Configuring LiveLink; for Linux operating systems, see Configuring LiveLink). The teaming software periodically probes (issues a link packet from each team member) one or more specified target network device(s). The probe target(s) responds when it receives the link packet. If a team member does not detect the response within a specified amount of time, this indicates that the link has been lost, and the teaming software discontinues passing traffic through that team member. Later, if that team member begins to detect a response from a probe target, this indicates that the link has been restored, and the teaming software automatically resumes passing traffic through that team member. LiveLink works only with TCP/IP.
