Summary: Great way to go and inexpensive. My original FIOS package came with a 10/100 router that I replaced with a 10/100/1000 (Gigabit) router. The best way to go would be to get this Gigabit card made for a PCIe bus, but my only PCIe socket is already used for an ATI graphics card. So using this on a PCI bus allows my internet to connect at 1000. I use Linux MInt 17 Cinnamon. http://www.linuxmint.com/ Noticeable speed improvement.

Summary: The built-in Ethernet connection on the ancient Windows XP computer at work stopped working. MIS wouldn't fix it. This fixed the problem. Should I get their paycheck? :) Nice feature, it included a bracket for small form factor (SFF) computers, I have one of those at home, getting PCI cards for it can be a pain. It arrived with the standard bracket attached, by the way.
great card working the first time without a lot of installation troubles

Summary: The network adapter card worked just as it said it would. it is a good feeling knowing when you order something, that it will work when you receive it. Many times things in my life are held up for waiting for something to work, and it does not, but this time, right on time. Thank you for the assistance in a lightening struck computer, that all was not lost but recovered successfully.
Summary: I plugged this into a family's friend PC because their built in Intel Network Adapter was functioning on and off. I turned off the PC, slide the PCI card in, booted the PC to Windows 7 (64 bit). And it recognized without even having to install via the CD. P.S It does come with a low profile PCI adapter, which I had to use because the PC was a low profile Dell PC.
Summary: This is a great network card! Very inexpensive and easy to install. I followed the instructions (Windows 7) and tried to install the driver from the included disc but Windows would not allow me and said I already had the latest driver. Worked like a dream form the outset and has boosted my online speed marginally. Today no matter what you do do your are not going to see dramatic changes to your internet speed!
