Intel® PRO/100+ Adapter
Fast, reliable 10/100 network connections
For customers who want basic, high-speed connectivity, the Intel® PRO/100+
Adapter provides peak performance and leading reliability in a non-managed card.
It includes a full driver suite that is backwards compatible with existing Intel®
PRO/100 desktop adapters—so the new drivers will support your installed base.
Adaptive Technology is a silicon-based solution that optimizes adapter performance
based on your existing network environments. In addition, packet spacing is
increased to reduce collisions when traffic is heavy and decreased when traffic is
light for optimal throughput. Adaptive Technology also enables easy software
upgrades to the adapter microcode. This can increase adapter longevity by upgrading
operation at the silicon level without costly hardware upgrades.
Advanced single-chip design—The Intel® 82559 controller improves performance
and reliability by highly integrating functionality and reducing the number of components.
It is one-fourth the size and uses one-fourth the power of previous controllers.
10/100 auto-negotiation—Provides flexible support for mixed bandwidth networks,
so PCs can be relocated and network speed upgraded without changing adapters.
Full duplex capability virtually doubles Fast Ethernet throughput.
Improved network response time—During periods of heavy network traffic,
Intel's Adaptive Performance Tuning adjusts to optimize traffic speeds over the
network interface, helping to shorten response times.
