Intel's diagnostic software lets you test the adapter to see if there are
any problems with the adapter hardware, the cabling, or the network
connection. You can also use diagnostics to isolate problems during
troubleshooting.  DIAGS is a single program that operates identically
under multiple operating systems.

These utilities are designed to test hardware operation and confirm the
adapter's ability to communicate with another adapter in the same network,
primarily confirming cabling. They should not be used to judge performance.

They can test the adapter whether or not there is a responder on the network.
In order to do a thorough test, however, you should set-up a second system on
the network as a responder prior to starting a test.


- In general for any OS this utility may unload (or set to idle) the drivers 
  for the adapters selected through this utility,if they were loaded.



The tools driver can be installed on all versions of Windows since Windows 2000.  
The tools driver for the 32-bit versions of Windows are in the 
Win32 directory on the CD.  The tools driver for the 64-bit versions of Windows
are in the Win64 or Win64e directory on the CD.

To install the tools drivers on 32-bit Windows, run install.bat from the Win32
directory on the CD.  Run install.bat from the Win64 directory to install 
the tools drivers on 64-bit Windows. 

Although the tools are not installed with install.bat, the driver that
the tools require is copied into the local machine Windows driver directory.
To run the tools, launch a Command Prompt window from the Windows Start Menu.  
Go to the media and directory where the tools are located and run the tools.
The readme files for each tool are found in the same directory as the tools.
These tools can be manually installed on the local hard drive in any directory.

Although the tools driver can be installed on the system at the same time as
Intel(R) PROSet, this is not recommended, as the system may become unstable.
Uninstall PROSet before installing the tools.  When reinstalling PROSet, the
tools driver will be replaced, so the tools may not function properly.  In other
words, PROSet and the tools should be mutually exclusive.


The tools support Intel EFI-32/64 v1.10.  The tools for EFI-32 are in the 
EFI32 directory on the CD.  The EFI-64 tools are in the EFI64 directory on the
CD.  There is no installation required for EFI tools.  The tools can simply be
copied from the EFI32 or EFI64 directory to the drive that they will run from.


The tools support DOS v6.22 but should run in various DOS versions since 
including FreeDos.  There is no installation required for DOS tools.
The tools can simply be copied from the DOS directory on the CD to the drive
that they will run from.  It is expected that the tools have a clean boot 
environment. The tools will not run with memory managers and/or DOS networking
drivers loaded. The tools expect that they have full, unlimited control of the
hardware. The tools *WILL NOT* run properly if EMM386 is present.


The tools support RedHat distributions since v8.0 (32-bit, 64-bit, and EM64T architectures), but should run on any standard distribution with kernel 2.4
or later. Kernel source and working GCC is required for building the driver
stub required by the tools.  If you are having problems getting the tools to work
on your particular version of Linux, please fall back to one of the RedHat/Fedora
line of products. This is the installation procedure:

    1. Log in as root and create a temporary directory to build the Intel(R)
       PRO Network Connection Tools driver.

    2. Copy ‘install’ and ‘iqvlinux.tar.gz’ to the temporary directory.
       These files are in the Linux32 directory on the CD.

    3. CD to the temporary directory and run ‘.\install.’  The driver has been
       installed now, so the files in the temporary directory can be removed. 
       Note: the kernel source package is required to be installed from the 
       Redhat CD in order to build the driver.

    4. Copy the tools that you want to use from the Linux32 or Linux64 
       directory of the CD.
