Download the driver file (EXE) and run it. When you run it, it will extract the files to a temporary directory, run the installation wizard, and remove the temporary files when the installation is complete. Very easy, typical Intel style.

This 32bit driver is compatible with the following Intel branded motherboard models with built in network chipset:

  1. DX48BT2
  2. DP45SG
  3. DG45ID
  4. DG45FC
  5. DQ45CB
  6. DQ45EK
  7. DG35EC
  8. DG31GL
  9. DG43NB
  10. DP43TF
  11. DQ43AP
  12. DG43GT
  13. DB43LD
  14. D5400XS
  15. DG33BU
  16. DG33FB
  17. DG33TL
  18. DP35DP
  19. DQ33HS
  20. DQ35JO
  21. DQ35MP
  22. DX38BT

Intel(R) PROSet users must upgrade PROSet when upgrading drivers. Failure to do so will result in instability and missing tabs in Windows Device Manager.

Additional steps to be taken:

  1. In your computer’s BIOS settings, make sure "Plug and Play OS" is set to YES.
  2. Make sure the driver is loaded and the necessary protocols are installed and configured for your Intel network adapter.
  3. Check the Microsoft Windows* Event Viewer for error messages.
  4. Test the adapter with the Intel® PROSet for Microsoft Windows* Device Manager advanced configuration utility or with the DOS diagnostic provided in the Tools Directory contained in this archive.
  5. Check with your LAN administrator - you may need to install supplemental networking software.

If you need to install in other than 32bit Windows, you might want to refer to the info below for file needed:

  1. Microsoft Windows* (x64, 64 bit versions) - PROWINX64.exe
  2. Microsoft Windows* Server for Itanium-based Systems - PROWIN64.exe
  3. Microsoft Windows* 2000 SP4 - PRO2K.exe
  4. NetWare - PRONWARE.exe
  5. DOS (NDIS2, ODI) - PRODOS.exe

Since this is the latest supported driver available on Intel PRO_17 0_PROWin32.exe, and the latest supported OS being Windows 7, so for Windows 8, 10 and later I believe the driver is already supported by Windows and should be installed automatically.

If you have the following network card and you plan to use it in Windows 7, you are out of luck because Windows 7 does not support these:
