OS requirements : Windows 10 64 bit or more recent.
Hardware requirements : Intel Ethernet/WiFi/Bluetooth controller.


TIPS :

If you want to manage the drivers (remove old/unused drivers for example) that you have in your Windows DriverStore
Use Driver Store Explorer (Right click on "Rapr.exe" > Run as administrator).

If you want better interrupts delivery latency
Enable MSI (Message Signaled-based Interrupts) mode on all your supported devices (see the column "supported modes") with
MSI Mode Utility (Right click on "MSI_Mode_Utility_v3.exe" > Run as administrator).

Get-NetAdapterRss doesn't show any RSS support.
However, after manually adding the RSS entries to the registry, RSS shows up again but only with 1 queue.
So basically not working. But I'm also using WSL/Hyper and I'm not sure if WSL/Hyper forces the NIC to use 1 queue.
Maybe someone else can test?


This is interesting, as upgrading the built-in 1.0.2.14 driver (included with the motherboard) to the latest v2 driver does not disable RSS support, at least on my system. I am guessing there is an issue with the current v2 drivers and they do not disabled RSS support as the 1.1.3.28 appear to do (I have never tested these drivers). I created the Intel thread that you linked, because RSS causes a BSOD when WSL/WSB/HyperV is enabled.

That said, search for my earlier post in this thread... it seems to be possible to enable RSS via PowerShell if you limit it to only the P-Cores. RSS doesn't support hyperthreading so it likely doesn't support E-Cores either. However, RSS is smart enough to not use the hyperthreaded cores... it doesn't appear to be smart enough to not use the E-Cores, hence the BSOD's.

Im on a 10850k and by default my maxprocessor was 18 for some reason when the chip only has 10 cores. I changed it to 10 and it seems to install fine.

Hello MoKiChU!
Just updated to Windows 11, and as you told me a few time ago, I went to update only the Intel Ethernet drivers to last Windows 11 version...but trying to update them as usual pointing to the new drivers, it returns me a message that I'm using latest drivers already.
Installed drivers are your latest Windows 10 drivers I installed.

What is the correct way to update them?
Thank you.

EDIT: I tried forcing them with the "Have Disk" button, and it worked. Is that the correct way?

Hi,

Given that Windows is always based on the date to favor one driver over another, and that Windows 10 drivers are more recent in date than Windows 11 drivers, yes that's the correct way (or other ways such as removing Windows 10 drivers via Driver Store Explorer and then installing Windows 11 drivers).

Fantastic! Thank you.

Do you have any personal thoughts regarding which drivers are best (WIn 11 Vs. Win 10) as for the actual state of drivers developing?
As for one of your past posts from a few days ago you were proposing "NetAdapter" v2.1.1.7 Vs. "NDIS" v1.1.3.28 ....

@ I225 controller users : As you can see, there are now 2 types of drivers for Windows 11 in the thread, so I anticipate questions by letting you know the difference between the two :

NetAdapter : More efficient than NDIS drivers type because of more low level access to the controller than NDIS drivers type, but can generate side effects due to the non-support of NetAdapter by other apps or system addons features. If you encounter any issue with NetAdapter drivers type, switch to the NDIS drivers type.

NDIS : NDIS drivers type is the legacy drivers type used for all other I21x controllers drivers whether for Windows 10 drivers or Windows 11 drivers, this drivers type will give you better stability/compatibility.

Hi,

Unless specifically use, just install the drivers corresponding to your OS.

Can't think of any particular reasons why I might need a driver for Windows 10 if the one for Windows 11 is working fine.

But as you stated:

NetAdapter : More efficient than NDIS drivers type because of more low level access to the controller than NDIS drivers type, but can generate side effects due to the non-support of NetAdapter by other apps or system addons features. If you encounter any issue with NetAdapter drivers type, switch to the NDIS drivers type.


So I immagine the only reason to use the NDIS drivers is related to some hardware/software incompatibility of some how or anything related to not being able to use NetAdapter drivers without any issues....right?
