I am using the above Intel adapter in a Synology NAS server. I would like to update the firmware running on the on the NIC because I am having some intermittent network errors that might be related to the NIC. I down loaded the latest firmware available from Intel's website. I cannot do the upgrade on the box that it is running on because it runs a stripped down version of Linux and some of the commands don't work. I tried putting the NIC in a windows 7 PC but I can't seem to get the firmware update utility to run. I was wondering if anyone has tried this and give me some direction.
