    My boss is on my nuts about documenting the firmware of the NIC cards we test. I will paypal $5 to the person who can get me the firmware of this card.

    Note: You gotta show me how you got the firmware version.
    Like from website, utility, or other documentation. No money if you can't back up the version number.

    And to avoid confusion, I am talking specifically about the firmware of the card. NOT the driver.

    I'm convinced that Intel doesn't release this shit. Boss thinks otherwise.

    Inside what OS? Wintel should be able to use the ProSet utilities to find it.

    Unix there's a variety of commands that will likely get you the information depending on what flavor you're using.

    It's VMWare ESX Server. -Pretty much Linux COS.

    I tried using ethtools, but it returns N/A for firmware.
