Summary: I am trying to get us on THIS router. They hear cheap very well and ask fo rit by name, but always wait to buy cisco. So we are on 10/100!!!...until that is under $200. By then Dlink will have 4G fiber!
Pros: Ok, there may be better transfer rates, but unless you are on a coperate LAN with MANY MANY people doing big transfers this a GREAT soulition! Hey, and even on the corporate level, our local workgroup (DV editors)
Summary: Codedot ran into the same "gothca" that I did when I bought a DGS-1008D. The PCI bus runs at 33MHz. So, a 32-bit PCI card is maxing out the bus around 100Mbs. In other words, if the gigabit NIC isn't built into the MB, you're chokepoint is the PCI-bus. Same with RAID controllers.
Summary: Careful with this one. It doesn't support "jumbo packets", which is a powerful tweak for gigabit networks. Yes you'll get much better speeds even without jumbo packets, but your're losing 'at least' 33% of speed under certain circumstances.
Summary: Please note the model from Findmemory is NOT the GREEN version despite description. Findmemory quickly delivered and quickly responded to email offering full refund if wanted, but do not stock the green version.
