    x710 firmware update


      I have trouble updating firmware for X710DA4 card.

      This card drops connection at random with Linux 4.9.9 driver.

      The driver requires firmware update.  But I tried all three versions

      at Intel website and all said update not available.

      Any help would be much appreciated.

      driver: i40e

      version: 2.0.19

      supports-eeprom-access: yes
