Can't beat a classic chip

Philip, Amazon
1 May 2014
  • Summary: The PWLA8391GT chip on this CCA is, a decade later, still great. Driver support is an obvious, and so is the performance. Consistent throughput with literally no errors, these things can last longer than your actual computer.

  • Summary: You need this NIC in your system if you stream media via Windows Homegroup. For the price, they're practically giving it away. I've never had an issue with it and have installed one in every PC build I've ever done.
  • Pros: Fast, reliable
  • Cons: None

Great network card which supports jumbo frames / jumbo packets

LI Shooter, Amazon
2 January 2014
  • Summary: The main reason I bought this card is because it supports jumbo packets. I am using a GigE network camera and needed a network card that accepts jumbo frames, and this one has it. I am using 9014 bytes, which is not that uncommon, but this card also supports 16128 bytes. Overall it does everything you would expect from a network card.

NIC it!

PopsTX, TigerDirect.com
19 August 2013
  • Summary: We deal primarily in Linux builds and ran across a motherboard that used an A T H E R O S ethernet controller --which Linux does NOT like. This little add on NIC card allows us to install the OS with absolutely no problem -then apply the fix for the odd-ball on-board controller -then remove the NIC for future use on another install. PERFECT! Also have used this piece as a permanent addition to certain builds. Definitely Plug-n-Play --Never a problem.

Priced well above others, but well worth it.

Razz, Amazon

  • Summary: Worked without a hitch in an old computer with Windows XP. Lived up to "plug and play". It replaced the lower speed on-board NIC.

What no Win7 support ?

Willam Armstrong, Amazon
6 July 2013
  • Summary: I upgraded from Windows XP to Win7, in the process the embedded LAN card stopped working. I picked a "name brand" replacement one from Intel. This of course cost more but I wanted some assurance it would work with Microsoft. I mean Intel & Microsoft, how could I go wrong?NOT! No Windows7 support, go figure! So I can't say how well it worked since it didn't!

  • Pros: small footprint
  • Cons: none
