Windows: Connect network adapter to Windows 2008 Server R2 x64

Environment: Windows Server 2008 R2 x64

I bought made-by-order PC to make my own development server and install Windows 2008 Server R2 x64 operating system. But I found that there is a problem to let this O/S to know LAN on-board. So, I tried with many other LAN card or Wireless LAN. Still there is no driver that matches and works well with the O/S.

Finally I found in Thailand market that there is a LAN card for server model. It's "Intel® PRO/1000 PT Server Adapter" use with PCI Express (PCIe) slot.


The price is 5 times more expensive than the normal LAN card but it solve my problem.


Other card that may be able to use with this O/S is D-Link DGE-530T but I couldn't find it to test.


Good luck for the one that get frustrate about this issue.
