The Intel ® PRO/1000 Gigabit Server Adapter’s driver is responsible for implementing the Intel ® PROSet functionality and the Intel ® I/O Acceleration technology. The PROSet functionality employed by this driver is incorporated into the adapter properties of the Windows Device Manager (WDM) and is not an application separate from the WDM. It does not have a tray icon and a control panel. This functionality’s settings in conjunction with the adapter device’s settings can be configured via the properties tabs in WDM. The PROSet functionality delivers additional services like settings for boot agent, configuration help topics and diagnostics for the adapter. This functionality is also required when the system that the Intel ® PRO/1000 Gigabit Server Adapter runs on has the VLAN configuration and ANS/ Advanced Networking Services installed. The Intel PROSet likewise functions in combination with the hardware for the Intel ® PRO/ Wireless Network Connection for connecting desktop PCs or laptops to a WLAN (wireless local area network).
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
This driver also aids the Intel ® PRO/1000 Gigabit Server Adapter in implementing the Intel ® I/O Acceleration Technology. This is a network platform technology that is capable of accelerating, seamlessly scaling and optimizing enterprise servers running on the Linux and Windows Server operating systems. With this technology’s acceleration features, networking data are transferred to applications much faster, couple that with the technology’s optimization features and users are allowed to boost server loads without the need to boost power consumption. On the other hand, Intel’s I/O Acceleration Technology features for seamless scaling of multiple ports are capable of providing users with enhanced networking throughput from teaming alongside stable application and server availability. It likewise delivers improved VoIP (voice over IP) technology and Optimal AP Selection functions for enabling traffic load balancing over access points. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and Intel(R) PRO/1000 Gigabit Server Adapter errors before installing any driver updates.
