    if not we need to make it work.
    Could you give this a try and give us the feedback?

    Edwin,

    can not get it working.

    I have beckhoff TC2 installed , so first I removed the Twincat Intel PCI ethernet adapter and uninstalled TwinCat2
    restart
    then the intel 82579 comes up as networkadapter and I removed it.
    at first could not find the right inf file , but found it on reinstall date in oem 4.
    removed oem4.inf and oem4.pnf
    restart

    then it comes up with unindetified hardware and i go to the driver location.
    but it indicates that no valid driver for this hardware is found.

    i found the drivers in windows /system32/drivers. (CmpEt100drv.sys CmpEt1000Drv.sys)
    that is different from the location that is in the documentation <rte-installation directory="">\cmpet1000 but are the right ones i think.</rte-installation>

    Had to do system recovery at this point because ethernet was not working any more.

    can you help me to get it working.
    it is a XP sp3 windows 7 PC

    Hi,
    please use attached net541ex.inf and copy it to:
    C:\Program Files\3S CODESYS\CODESYS Control RTE3\CmpEt1000MPD
    then point on the Windows driver installation to this file.
    Let me know if this works for you.

    works. thanks.
    the same file was already in the map . That one didn,t work.
    Replaced it by the one you send and that worked.

    Need RTE for distributed clock for the drives. The drives otherwise go in error because of the jitter if i use codesys control

    Had to remove beckhoff twincat 2 otherwise it keeps installing the twincat intel DCI ethernet adapter.
    What happens if I reinstall beckhoff twincat 2 or 3. It overwrites the driver again i think.
    not i good idea, but I need twincat also to set basis parameters for the ax drives an other beckhoff devices.
    Must use 2 pc,s one for codesys, one for beckhoff . any tips?

    regards
    Han

    Hi,
    check the Control RTE Manual.
    And since 3.5SP12 there is Control RTE and Control Win in the online help:
    https://help.codesys.com/webapp/_cds_rt ... n=3.5.12.0
    you need to add the component in the RTE configuration.
    That will solve it

    Hi,
    you need to install the CODESYS driver for the i218 network interface
    (Windows device manager)
