Important Information

The Broadcom NetXtreme devices have many dependancies on other files and the drivers and applications must match. Due to this fact, the Windows drivers for NetXtreme 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.
