User Review

  • Summary: My FIL's computer lost internet connectivity, but everything else continued to work. I chose this option over replacing the mother board, and it has proven to be a good, far less expensive alternative. Set up was easy and quick (under Windows 7).

Solid, reliable gigabit . . .

R. L. Hume, Amazon

  • Summary: I have a total of four of these in use now, two for over five years. They're still going strong, transparent, reliable, inexpensive. What more do you want out of a network card?

It fits - software issue

Customer, Amazon
26 March 2014
  • Summary: This item fit well and worked after many hours of tracking down the software files on-line. The disk that was included would not install. I had to go out and search for the drivers and manually upload to the files to my hard drive. Once complete, it has been working well. This should have been a 15 minute install, including the software/drivers, but that was definitely not the case. The product has been working well, so other than the software issue, I would recommend.

It works great!

  • Summary: I recently bought two of these cards (DGE-530T) and the D-link 8-port Gigabit switch (DGS-2208) here at Amazon, and I must say that it works great. I have been able to transfer files three times as fast as before.

Simply reliable and easy to install

  • Summary: If you've seen NICs (Network Interface Card) before, this is pretty much the standard for gigabit speed. I find D-Link to be one of the most reliable products around and so far, I haven't seen a single problem with the product, very reliable and I highly recommend.

Do not get this if you're running Linux

B. Wilson, Amazon
15 February 2014
  • Summary: Works fine on Windows XP, but does not work well with Linux. I've been using Linux for at least 10 years and compiling my own kernels for most of that time, and still had issues getting this card to run under Linux. My built in 10/100 NIC was much faster than this card would go. Ended up getting an Intel gigabit card that, of course, works with no issues. Save yourself some headaches and stay away from this card if it is destined for a Linux box.

Ads Gigabit Speed to my Desktop

Scott Lucas, Amazon
15 February 2014
  • Summary: All you need is an open PCI slot, $$, and 5 minutes to install and get gigabit speeds. Oh and a gigabit switch. :) Gigabit speeds are especially useful for transferring large files. And now-a-days almost everything is a large file. Movies, videos, CD backups, DVD backups, ghost images, ISOs, large winzip fules, etc.. And when you want to transfer them over a network and not wait around forever, then gigabit is your answer.

Feb 2011 Drivers Makes It Work!!

Jon Pearkins, Amazon
15 February 2014
  • Summary: Works on Windows 7 64-bit with 4GB RAM, but ONLY if you download and install D-Link's Feb 2011 (or more recent) drivers BEFORE you install the card. It is also a good idea to remove or disable any other NIC you may have on the same computer. Unless, of course, you need the other NIC. Since most machines now have a NIC on the motherboard, this involved disabling the NIC in BIOS. For example, with Phoenix BIOS, you would set "Onboard LAN Controller" to "Disabled".

Great, inexpensive gigabit card for Linux and Windows

B. True, Amazon
15 February 2014
  • Summary: I got this card after my on-board Gigabit adapter failed. I looked around and this was the best choice for an inexpensive Gigabit network card with Linux support. I have purchased close to 10 of them for my home office network and am very satisfied. I've since put in two D-Link switches, a D-Link WAP, and a D-Link VPN router. My usage is limited to mostly the transfer of a lot of small files, but there are some occasional largish files.
