    Are separate Intel gigabit NIC cards a solution to AMT vulnerability?

      Assuming I have one of the affected boards (from the link below) and a vPro processor, does AMT still function if I disable onboard networking and add an Intel NIC card?

      Would it make any difference if the card was PCI or PCIe? I wouldn't think so.

       

      I believe AMT does not function through a Realtek NIC card. Please correct this assumption if I am in error.

       

      And in case it's not obvious, I don't use AMT so disabling it would not present a problem.
