    Intel Pro 1000/PT Dektop - Disappearing Info

    UkonCornelias

      PC:  Windows Vista Ultimate SP1 (32bit)

      NIC:  Intel Pro 1000/PT Desktop adapter

      Driver Version:  PROVISTA32_v13_3

       

      After Installing the v13.3 drivers, with the Advanced Network Services, if I go into Device Manager, select the PT 1000 NIC and choose properties, I see the additional tabs that were added in the driver install.  At some point, say a week later, I open Device Manager, then the properties for the PT 1000 NIC, the additional tabs are gone.  I just see the default Windows tabs - General, Driver, Details, Power Management.  I have uninstalled the NIC in Device Manager, including the driver software, reinstalled the drivers with the Advanced Network Services, and once again see the additional tabs in Device manager for the NIC.  However, a few days later, when I check the NIC in Device Manager, the additional tabs are gone.  I have also seen this behavior with previous version of the driver software, not just v13.3.

       

      1.  Why are the additional tabs disappearing?

      2.  What should the driver version show as on the driver tab in Device Manager.  Mine shows as, Driver Date:  9/26/2008.  Driver Version 9.12.30.0.  Shouldn't it be Oct 2008 and 13.3??
