Pros: Cheap replacement for when lightning took out the Network Adapter on my wifes mother board. Had bought a wireless adapter (not from Newegg). The wireless version was spotty at best and lead to endless complaints from my loving wife. This card has operated in a flawless fashion since I installed i...
Summary: I have about purchased about 10 of these now. I end up buying refurbished computers for my office better one or two years out of lease but apparently the ethernet card and then goes out very quickly. Previously I was spending 1 to 2 hours troubleshooting the problem.
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.
Pros: Works in Linux (Ubuntu Lucid 10.04 32-bit) with no tweaks necessary. I did not use the included CD for any drivers. The machine is an IBM 8133 desktop. dmesg | grep hinted at gigabit working and a simple large file transfer confirmed gigabit speed. I bought this because the IBM 8133's built-in gi...
Summary: Extremely small, which is what I needed for my cramped PC case. I have a Dell XPS 8300 with an EVGA GTX660 SC video card. The onboard NIC failed (which is a common problem on these models) so I needed something small enough to fit below my video card, and short enough to not have an effect on it's...
Summary: I originally got this to run OS X on my hackintosh. ;) It does not work very well with Yosemite so I decided to go back to windows and I then installed the card on my wifi only server to make it hard lined.
Pros: It gets the job done. Firm and well built.
Cons: Only 11mb/s file transfer speeds with smb on a Gigabit link.
Great compatibility with Pfsense! Comes with low profile AND standard profile brackets!

Summary: I built a custom Pfsense box and used one of these for the WAN port. Plug-and-play functionality. No drivers or software installation necessary. I installed it and it worked right out of the box. i didn't even have to configure anything in Pfsense.
