- On chip firmware version 0.8 or greater
- PCI Local Bus version 2.2
- PCI-X Local Bus version 1.0
- EEPROM utility is included in this build.

Note: Upgrading to the latest version of firmware is required for this release
of software to work properly. Refer to the chart below to find the correct
firmware version that works for your controller type/NIC type.

B95702A20C - Server VID = 0x14E4, SID = 0x16A6, SVID = 0x14E4, SSID =
0x000C (it's needed for teaming to work)

B95703A30C - VID = 0x14E4, SID = 0x16A7, SVID = 0x14E4, SSID = 0x0009
B95703A30S - VID = 0x14E4, SID = 0x16A7, SVID = 0x14E4, SSID = 0x000A

B95704CA40 - VID = 0x14E4, SID = 0x1648, SVID = 0x14E4, SSID = 0x1648

If PXE is an enabled option, then it's recommended to upgrade both boot code and
pxe as follows:

1) Copy ee570xy.zz and pxe.bin to the same
directory of your B57diag.exe. x=c or s (copper or fiber). y.zz=(version of the bin file).
2) At the dos command type:

b57diag -e b57kia -f -ppxe b57pxe.bin (use b57pxe.bin for a NIC, LOM file name may differ)

Once you complete the boot code and pxe upgrade. Use "secfg" from the
b57diag.exe -e b57eng to enable the PXE expansion ROM option.

The firmware version can be found by using b57diag -ver.
The latest firmware versions are included on this CD at  \Dos\BootCode directory.
For BCM5702/03/03S/04 based adapters copy ee5702cx.yy/ee5703cx.yy/ee5703sx.yy/ee5704cx.yy respectively to eeprom.bin before upgrading. Note: c=Copper, s=Fiber, x.yy= (version of the bin file)
For information regarding b57diag refer to the \DOS\UserDiag\b57diagman.pdf

Upgrading from the Previous Driver Release
==========================================

It is highly recommended that you install the BCM570x NetXtreme Gigabit Ethernet Adapter and the latest version of software, on a server where no earlier-version Broadcom NetXtreme Gigabit Adapters and drivers are installed.
