The HP NC373T is a multifunctional gigabit server adapter that is hosted on the PCI Express expansion slot of the computer motherboard. This particular hardware component is responsible for delivering high speed network connections. The networking component is designed for use with the HP ProLiant Server which is product line designed to cater to high traffic network environments. The device driver is also responsible for the implementation of various proprietary networking technologies like TCP/IP Offload Engine, Remote Directory Memory Access, and Internet SCSI among others. The communication layer and the accompanying networking technologies are delivered using a single Ethernet cable connection making the hardware component a multifunctional server adapter card. The device driver also implements standard network server features like failover and load balancing, large send offload capability, pre-boot execution environment, and multiple virtual Local Area Network tagging among others.
Unless you update your drivers regularly you may face hardware performance issues.
To check your drivers you should manually verify every device on your system for driver updates
Like most network hardware components the HP NC373T is deployed in conjunction with a diagnostic utility kit that allows not only for the proper configuration of the supported device but troubleshooting as well. The diagnostics utility is enabled with the installation of the diagnostic driver that is bundled with the device driver that makes the HP NC373T networking component functional. Diagnostic utilities are essentially designed to ensure that the supported hardware component maintains optimum levels of operation at runtime. The diagnostic driver is responsible for the display of the user interface which allows the computer user to test various operational status indicators of the supported networking component. This routine is essential to ensure that the computer network is always functional and every client maintains correct access to the shared network environments. This particular network device also supports prevailing protocols of the network operating system.
