gigabit NIC


I was looking at this one:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16833389009

The products from this company all have 4 or 5 /5 stars on multiple sites so I figure they're pretty good..

anything to consider for bonding the ports? If you have a better suggestion around the price I'm all for it

need a few of them, got pci and x1 / x4 lanes open, don't really care for the dual port cards as they're a lot more expensive

Hi,

How is the LAN Hardware configured? Type of service? What do you expect to gain by using this card? Hopefully your LAN can support what you expect from this card.

Seems to be a network card using the Realtek RTL8168B network chip. There wont be much, if any, difference between brands of network cards when they use the same network chip.

I'd prefer to get a network card with free firmware. They would probably cost a fair bit more than that netis card though....

Usually the card should work without a problem with the generic drivers. Otherwise checkout the website from Realtek, they may offer some fresh drivers also.

Regards
