VLAN termination with Intel NICS on Windows 7/8/10/2008/2012

The vast majority of the time Intel NIC's are supported out of the box on Windows operating systems - although the drivers bundled with Windows only expose a small subset of the functionality typically available with the NICs.

A good example of this is the ability to setup VLAN tagging on a subinterface - in order to provide support for this you must firstly install Intel ProSet (and feature called 'Advanced Network Services'):


When installing ensure that the 'Advanced Network Services' is checked:

Once installed proceed to the interface properties and there should now be a new tab entitled 'VLANs':

Add the relevant VLAN and finally you should see a new network interface adapter appear.
