For PCs with PCI Express (PCIe) slots, the Intel Gigabit CT Desktop Adaptor offers maximum system performance and increased end-user productivity. Specifically, the Intel Gigabit CT Desktop Adaptor uses auto-negotiation to ensure the adaptor runs at the highest available network speed (10, 100, or 1000 Mbps), and it maintains full bandwidth capacity with the dedicated bandwidth of a PCI Express input/output (I/O) bus to provide connectivity you can count on. Based on the low-power Intel 82574L Gigabit Ethernet Controller, this desktop adaptor offers optimal performance in a low-cost, low-power, compact profile. Teaming support and an array of other advanced features enable customers to utilize this adapter as an entry-level server adapter as well.

Main Features

  • Intel 82574L Gigabit Ethernet Controller: High performance and reliability; low power
  • Interrupt moderation: Delivers increased performance while significantly reducing CPU usage
  • PCI Express x1 slot compatible: Designed for high performance on PCI Express desktop architecture while maintaining compatibility with PCI applications
  • Compatible with Fast Ethernet and Ethernet: Reduces deployment and training costs and enables easy, quick migration to Gigabit Ethernet
  • 10/100/1000 Mbps auto-negotiation: Automatically compatible with Ethernet, Fast Ethernet, and Gigabit Ethernet networks
  • Support for most network operating systems: Enables widespread deployment
  • Advanced configuration and power interface(ACPI); Wake on LAN* (WoL); Preboot ExecutionEnvironment (PXE): Allows low-power consumption, remote wake, and remote booting
  • Remote Management Support: Reduces support costs with remote management based on industry-wide standards
  • Intel PROSet Utility for Microsoft Device Manager: Provides point-and-click power over individual adaptors, advanced adaptor features, connection teaming, and virtual local area network (VLAN) configuration
  • Advanced cable diagnostics: Dynamically tests and reports network problems (error rate, cable length) and automatically compensates for cable issues (cross-over cable, wrong pin-out/polarity)
  • Intel backing: Backed by an Intel limited lifetime warranty, 90-day, money-back guarantee (U.S. and Canada), and worldwide support
  • Optimized queues: 2 Transmit (Tx) and 2 Receive (Rx): Efficient packet prioritization
  • MSI-X Support: Minimizes the overhead of interrupts, Allows load balancing of interrupt handling between different cores/CPUs

Q: I have just purchased this adapter which arrived with your usual efficiency. But now looking at your published specifications I see it does not list compatibility with Linux kernels after I have kernel 3.1 on my newbuild and I had assumed later kernels would be OK but checking now it looks to me that I should have purchased an Intel PRO/1000 GT rather than the CT version. Can I use the CT adapter with the latest kernel or do I order a GT adapter?
Answer by CCL on 19th July 2013
I would expect that this is simply due to the specifications for the device being written prior to the version you're using. If you've tried it and it isn't working, I'd recommend contacting our customer services department for them to raise you a return. -Danlevan
