Description (last modified by frank) (diff)

The Intel Pro/1000 MT and T network adapters fail Intel's standalone diagnostic tests which can be found  here.

The archive is unpacked under Windows and runs from a DOS command line. The program 'diags.exe' reports failures in:

  1. Register test
  2. Fifo test
  3. Internal loopback test

Further problems are demonstrated by Intel's packet driver for this adapter, the app can be found  here.

The packet driver is unable to send any packets, e.g. using Crynwr's pktsend program which can be found  here.

Aside - AMD's packet driver for the PC-Net adapter works fine in the same DOS VM.
