net-e1000e (obsolete!)


Driver for Intel GigaBit NICs (incl. I217/I218/82579LM/82574L and others)

Please note that this driver is obsolete, because with ESXi 5.5 Update 3 VMware introduced a newer version of e1000e which supports the same set of devices plus Intel i219 adapters (PCI IDs 8086:156f, 8086:1570, 8086:15b7, 8086:15b8)! Please use this instead. For details read this blog post.
