I am converting my PC to a real-time target. I know Broadcom network cards with only certain Product IDs are compatible. How do I find the Product ID for my Broadcom network card?

Solution

In order to find the Product ID (also known as device ID, chipset ID or model ID), follow these steps:
  1. Open the Device Manager by right-clicking My Computer»Properties. Select the Hardware tab and click Device Manager.
  2. Expand Network Adapters, then right-click your Broadcom network card and select Properties.
  3. Select the Details tab and make sure Device Instance Id is selected from the drop-down menu.
  4. In the displayed string, the numbers following DEV_ are the product ID.
