Integrated NIC3163 fails under NT

Hello all, concerning using several new ML370 with the integrated N3163 eth. adapter I faced the following problem: independent of using the assisted installation via SmartStart 5.10 or doing a manual NT installation and adding the drivers afterwards, the configuration utility (smart icon) is not able to configure the adapter properly. If I reinstall the driver (1st step: uninstall, reboot, then add the driver via Network Properties from then by SmartStart disk builder created diskette) the utility works properly and the adapter works for a time, but casually it stops working. Has anybody an idea to solve my problem (I used the latest SmartStart 5.10!)? Greetz Roman

Hi Greetz,

yes, when you install an NC series nic the installation will detect it as an intel NIC AND a compaq nic..this is due to the chipset being intel but the bios on the card being compaq...you MUST uncheck the intel option when it presents you with the cards to install and then it should work fine
