Configuring VLAN's for NIC cards

Posted on 2011-10-26

From my understanding I should have the ability to configure VLAN options on my Server NIC cards; I currently running Windows 2003 Server Standard with Intel(R) PRO/1000 GT Quad Port Server Adapter. Does anyone have any knowledge of this?

    from what I can tell, basic driver does not give access to VLANs - need to use their ProSET/ANS pieces.

    I installed the driver but I don’t see the option to use VLANS in the Network properties.

    searching thru my notes, find two references to Intel, VLAN and apaprent need to edit REG entry. running behind this morning but maybe thiese'll help (will check back later)

    Following was from a VMware forum methinks...
    "The Intel's were a tougher nut to crack as the settting is not exposed through the NIC's Advanced Properties, but only through the registry .  Changing the HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{GUID}\XXXX\VlanFiltering registry key (where {GUID} is the GUID containing the network adapter configuration and XXXX is the NIC to be confgured) from 1 to 0 and rebooting corrects the issue.  The easiest way to find the proper key in your system is to use the find command in regedit with enough of the network adapter name (i.e. for the Intel's, find "1000 PT")."
