Intel PCIe Gigabit Ethernet Adapter "OS/2 Community" Driver for OS/2 & eCS V0.1.6
This is a current build of the latest snapshot of the E1000E driver source
which is currently at V0.1.6+ level. This should match the code level
and realibility to the last official release of this driver.
This driver will work only on newer PCI Express based Intel network chipsets,
the old PCI based adapter family is supported by the last official E1000 OS/2
driver made by Intel or IBM.
Unpack the files from the archive in a temporary location, then use your
favorite MPTS utility to install the driver.
We express our thanks to Mensys BV, especially David for starting the Multimac
project to address the requirement for native network drivers and to support
PCIe based network chipsets on the market. Multimac has its roots in the
NVETH driver port made by nickk. We also want to thank nickk for the good
nvidia nforce network family driver port and making the code available.
The driver will always report the 'loaded ok' message during bootup, this

For a deep analysis its required to have access to a more detailed debug log
which is provided by the debug driver version of the E1000E driver. There are
two versions available in the \debug subdirectory of this package, the 'com'
version will write the log to a com1 (3f8h) terminal, the 'mem' debug variant
will write it to an internal memory buffer. The driver has limited error
handling, because of it hardware mismatches or init problems will not
