Advanced Ethernet Adapter Settings Dialog Box

 

Select your active directory computers from the list provided and then tweak values for each advanced ethernet adapter setting (speed & duplex, flow control, checksum offload, etc.) in the dialog box on-screen.  Save your settings as a policy by clicking Save NIC Policy.  NIC policies can be applied to the ethernet adapters in your selected computers.

You may have, for example, saved policy settings for laptops, another for servers, and another for desktops, which allows best network performance for these groups of computers.  

More filtering allows you to only show network interface cards from specific manufacturers (e.g., Intel, Broadcom, HP, Realtek, etc.). Click the dropdown for a list of manufacturers.

Click the "Only show non-compliant adapters" checkbox filter if you only want to display computers that are not compliant with the NIC policy settings you've imported.  For example, if your imported NIC policy has Speed & Duplex set to "Auto Negotiation", and this box is checked, NIC Configurator 2013 will only display computers in your selection that are not compliant with your NIC policy, thus allowing usage of NIC Configurator 2013 to automatically adjust NICs in selected computers for compliance.
