Summary: Again, not sure if it was me doing something wrong, or the card having a hard time setting itself up. It works fine now, but screws its IP up every now and then after a reboot. It looks like I am the only one having issues with this, so I would still recommend getting it and chalk the issues up to...
Pros: Installs easily Plug n play LED speed indicators
Cons: Had some issues getting this thing recognized in my Fedora server, but then it just started working. Occasionally a reboot causes the IP address to be something completely out of any configuration. It is assigned a static IP from the dhcp server in the router. Not sure if this is because of this ...
Summary: Installation was typical. Opened computer and plugged card into empty slot. I bought this to plug into a Windows XP box to replace a failed 10/100mbps card. I'm using this slightly older machine as a multimedia box connected to my TV.
Summary: Easy to install. Used this to replace my network card that was fried by a recent lightning storm. I was off to the races in seconds. The hardest part of the install was unhooking and then rebooking all of cables to my computer.
Summary: Nic works as all network cards would work, it works great, super easy to install. I didn't realize this is an older Ethernet card so the last drivers updated for this card are a few years ago.
Summary: Yes I have 300+Mbs internet. No joke. Fiber right to my house. It will be going to 1 gigabit by the end of 2014. Unfortunately my PC is so old I am actually limited on downloads by HDD write speed! Ha I bet most people dont realize that.
Summary: No problems at all with these. Ordered two. Both running on BSD (firewall) machine. One inside and one outside. I don't anticipate any problem with these cards in the near future. A typical Gigabit PCI network card. I will order more of these in the future.
Summary: I purchased this card to put into a Linux server machine i use as a web server, NAS, media server, vpn, ftp solution. It's basically used for everything. I only had a 10/100 card that was on-board. I am currently running Ubuntu Server 10.04.2 x64. 2.6.32-31.
Summary: I needed some extra interfaces for a home lab Linux/KVM server for testing and these are working well for me. You can't beat them at this price point. Comes with a driver CD if you are going to install on a WIndows machine. So far so good!
