Pros: Put it on motherboard that my D-link router fried my net-work ports. Is worked right away with no cd install. Then went to devices, to my card and updated on internet. Found the newest driver, and is running fine.
Summary: This card worked flawlessly out of the gate on install. It replaces an onboard NIC for a computer that fried due to lightning. No messing around, put it in and it fired right up. 5 minutes and done!
Summary: I also had a power surge the consumed my ethernet card, router, and satellite router. Belkin was my first choice for the ethernet card, they replaced my router for free. The ethernet card is a great value and appears to be a great product. The installation was nearly foolproof! Highly recommend.
