Thank you for the post. There is no Windows 10 driver for Gigabit CT desktop adapter yet, you may refer to our download center ( Intel® Download Center) . Since you are using a Dell* system, it is recommended to check with them if the system support Windows* 10 to ensure compatibility, you may also check with Microsoft* if they provide built-in driver for the components embedded on the system.
Yeah, I tried that route. The machine is from 2010 and in computer years that's ancient. Therefore, Dell has not tested it for compliance with Windows 10 and I suspect that they will not force Realtek to update the drivers for this hardware combination. That's really why I'm considering a separate Ethernet add-in card so I can disable the onboard. When my WinX upgrade failed miserably, Microsoft said, "Oh I see this is for an untested Dell. We don't support this configuration..." And I had installed Windows 10 on top of itself several times so couldn't use the Go Back To... option. Quite ugly. I'll wait until an add-in card has WinX drivers. Thanks!!!
Are drivers for the EXPI9301CT in the works, or do I need to go shopping? If they are in the works, any idea of the timeframe?
Thank you for contacting Intel.
Our latest driver, version 20.2, doesn't support the Intel EXPI9301CT Adapter. I will check on this.
Have you figured anything out on this?
Thanks for writing back.
Intel® Gigabit CT Desktop Adapter can support these MS Windows* versions - XP, Vista, 7, 8, Server 2003 and 2008. Driver and software updates for Windows* 10 are not planned for this adapter model.

Ugh. I bought this card 2 months ago. I bought Intel thinking I was getting the best and would have a card that would last. Thanks for replying Sandy.
