Summary: After having a failing on-board LAN on a Dell Vostro 460, did a little research, installed, reboot, and ready to go. COuld not have been easier. Running Win7 Pro 64bit and could not be happier.
Summary: I've had better luck installing drivers for $5 NIC's. First of all, the Windows 7 drivers act like they work, but always reports network cable unplugged. Good luck finding the right drivers at the Intel website, it's a long process clicking dozens of pages deep. I've avoided Intel products ever since they declined to honor their warranty on a batch of 15 motherboards that had capacitor failure back in 2006. I decided to try them again, and I should have known better.
Summary: Not very many small slot PCI cards out there anymore. Being that it was Intel I was thinking maybe it was a chance. The on-board to my MSI MB stopped working, seems a lot of them do for some reason. I had to download the driver for it though it did operate using what Windows 7 found for it, not having any manual was rather perplexing but not a super big deal. I wonder if this really is an Intel product or not or a name in similar. But what ever the case, it works.
Summary: I have an Asrock p4 extreme board which have problem connecting( their board are great but they have alot of Lan issues). I didn't feel like taking everything apart and sending it in for a RMA so i needed a Nic to replace my onboard Lan. After using this product for 2 weeks. I don't find anything particular bad about this item. Installation is simple and windows 7 detect it right away and provide a generic driver for it. Connected online download the correct driver.
Summary: Integrated network card in my computer gave out after 4 months. It would not connect with network when starting computer at first but would start after several reboots. This one has statrt every time perfectly right from the beginning. A little expensive but worth it. Would definetely recommend.
