Enabling the Intel Gigabit Ethernet Utility program

The Intel Gigabit Ethernet Utility is part of the BIOS code in your server. You can use it to configure the network as a startable device, and you can customize where the network startup option appears in your startup sequence.

Complete the following steps to enable the Intel Gigabit Ethernet Utility program:

1.From the Configuration/Setup Utility main menu, select Devices and I/O Ports and press Enter.

2.Select System Board Ethernet PXE/DHCP and use the Right Arrow (→) key to set it to Enabled.

3.Select Save Settings and press Enter.

Configuring the Intel Gigabit Ethernet controller

The Ethernet controller is integrated on the system board. It provides an interface for connecting to a 10-Mbps, 100-Mbps, or 1-Gbps network and provides full duplex (FDX) capability, which enables simultaneous transmission and reception of data on the network. If the Ethernet port in your server supports auto-negotiation, the controller detects the data-transfer rate (10BASE-T, 100BASE-TX, or 1000BASE-T) and duplex mode (full-duplex or half-duplex) of the network and automatically operates at that rate and mode.

You do not need to set any jumpers or configure the controller. However, you must install a device driver to enable the operating system to address the controller. For updated information about configuring the controller, go to http://www.ibm.com/pc/support/.
