1 out of 5 eggsDidnt work

Pros: The delivery was fast !!

Cons: When i got the package i just wanted to try the gigabit speeds on my computer, but the device didnt work at all. tried installing the drivers from the cd, manufacturer website and from device manager and it didnt install.

Other Thoughts: i think it was defective.

1 out of 5 eggsCheck your kernel

Pros: Excellent card with many features which are perfect for building a custom VLAN/Router with Cisco emulated interface.

Cons: Unless you have a Linux kernel of 3.0.2 or higher, this card will more than likely fall flat on its face and complain about packet failures at boot. Highly modified custom kernel still would not work 100% without segfaulting into oblivion. I put the blame squarely on Realtek for not having the drivers submitted in time for the hardware release. Not an uncommon practice for Realtek. Would have gone with another card had I known the chipset.

Other Thoughts: Returned, got a refund.

1 out of 5 eggsPeculiar problem

Pros: Can't evaluate...never got one on-line.

Cons: Installed in Win2K3 Server and successfully loaded mfr updated drivers and configured. Everything looked normal. As soon as I plugged in the CAT6, the server locked up requiring a hard boot. Upon recovery, system logs showed driver related errors generated at a rate of about 8 per second. The NIC was no longer visible as a device. Fried I suppose, so called for RMA. Newegg did RMA...fast service as usual. Second card did exactly the same as the first. I'll be trying another mfr Gig-E NIC next.

Other Thoughts: Two NICs were already in the server. One was 10/100 onboard to Firewall, the other was 10/100 PCI to internal LAN. This card was to replace the PCI card for uprated speed. New card shoulda worked, but didn't. I've experienced fibrechannel HBA conflicts in SAN environment but never with a NIC, if that's even the problem. Not going to troubleshoot further. Need to move on.

1 out of 5 eggsslow speeds

Pros: drivers are easy to find.
windows and linux recognize adapter out of the box

Cons: spikes cpu while transferring
cannot get over 15 MBps transfer speed.

Other Thoughts: if you plan on doing a lot of big file transfers, stay away.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: I think it might work if you're lucky.

Cons: It doesn't work in Windows XP. I have tried everything on both software and hardware and it simply refuses. "This device cannot start. (Code 10)" It does that in both PCI slots. Absolutely useless. Complete rubbish.

Other Thoughts: Pentium D 805, Intel D101GGC, 2x512MB DDR1-333, Radeon HD 3850-256MB, OCZ SXS 500W. The mobo only supports 10/100 so I grabbed this card for a gigabit connection.

1 out of 5 eggsDon't Watse your time

Pros: NewwEgg ships fast.

Cons: Drivers from D-Link are horrible. I ordered three of these and only one works. The others aer set up and then when I reboot they are unrecognized. I have 5 pc's and A server so I now its not just one PC. The new Drivers you can use to install. Horrible customer service they dont understand you very well. Would never buy another D-Link Again! Also product is been Dicontinued from D-Link over a year ago. Had to replace two of the three with another better name brand. Wasnt worth shipping back the two becasue I got free shipping and it would have cost me more to ship them back.

1 out of 5 eggsDid not work on first try.

Pros: Many good reviews, good specification, good price.

Cons: I received the card today and after 2+ hours trying to make it work, I am ready to RMA. First try method describe in the manual, then swap the card to every PCI slots, even use the same slot with a working 100Mb card. Next, down load two available drivers on the web and force the installation got yellow (!). MS updates do have a newer driver, but it won't work either. The LCDs on the card never turn on (should have taking the hint).

Other Thoughts: Wanted to upgrade from 100Mb to 1Gb on a very stable 2k server box. I am tempted to try again with another card, but one evening lost is enough.

1 out of 5 eggsDoes not work in Vista

Pros: None since I can't use it in Vista.

Cons: Vista x64 support does not exist. Been sitting on shelf for over 3 months. D-link still gives same answer.

Other Thoughts: Hi,
Unfortunately, at this time there are no Windows 64-bit drivers nor an ETA as to if or when 64-bit drivers will be released.
Sorry for the inconvenience.

Sincerely,

1 out of 5 eggsNO GOOD!

Pros: price only

Cons: it will not stay connected to the network. i have 2 of these bought from newegg for 2 different computers and neither will work properly no matter which pci slot they are installed in. for no apparent reason they drop connections and it is not due to irq conflicts.

Other Thoughts: none

1 out of 5 eggsD-Link is shipping VIRUSES

Pros: None I'm aware of.

Cons: I just bought one of these (DGE-530T), from another source. The drivers that D-Link shipped for the adapter are infected with a Trojan virus. My anti-virus software caught it and prevented it from installing, but that also prevented the adapter from working.

Other Thoughts: D-Link has not responded to my inquiries, thus far. I can't believe I'm the first to report it to them, though. So, since they are not willing to take action, I'm taking action, by warning people.

I highly recommend avoiding ANY D-Link products until there is a well publicized clean-up of their drivers.

1 out of 5 eggsBad Unit

Pros: Inexpensive. Driver is in latest linux kernels. Two different size brackets.

Cons: Driver comes up, lights reflect speed changes, but packets almost never get through. Errors not indicated. Driver not included in older Linux kernels.

Other Thoughts: I tried numerous known good cables, two known good gig-e switches, direct connect to nics. Speed negotiation and manual speed control seem to work fine but packets would get through about 0.1% of the time whether 100 or 1000 mbit set. Frustrating when the device can't supply an error to help with diagnosis.

1 out of 5 eggsIt's Dead

Pros: It's a gigabit, I suppose... When it was in a working mood, I never saw much of a speed increase transferring files to the server.

Cons: It didn't want to install, often didn't show up in the device manager. I finally got it working, but it had a "No NIC" error on every reboot. Last start up, it was gone, I tried the other PCI slots.

Other Thoughts: I have 6 GB of ram, maybe that's why? I don't know... I won't get another one.

1 out of 5 eggsD Link Tech Support Useless

Pros: None

Cons: I incurred a problem with this board. Intermittently the card is not recognized (XP pro device manager) on boot. After rebooting 2 or 3 additional times, the card works as expected. I did all of possible swapping of the h/w (slot, cables, etc) and the fault remains. I can replace the new card with an old nic card and NO problems. The only thing I got from D Link is that it must be my computer. I was not even asked what OS, what the driver version was, what the card h/w version was, etc. I asked about swapping the board and was told that they would not do it.
The "technical support" I talked to was completely unwilling to consider it was a D Link problem. I gave up. I know own a board that is usless. First and last D Link product.

Pros: It works as a regular one.

Cons: Lots of signal failure, need to reboot at least once a day.

Other Thoughts: I thought this will work as a champ in my new built system.The first one was not working,returned it and I got a new one,it was dropping signal every now and then,finnally bought a $ 10.adapter and it is far far better and working very good.Don't waste time and money for D-link products .

1 out of 5 eggsWATCH OUT! If you have 4GB RAM and Windows 7 64-bit

Pros: Works ok and pretty speedy with Jumbo Frames maxed out, BUT

Cons: IF you have 3GB of RAM (or more) installed on a 64-bit Windows 7 machine, the adapter does not work.
In my case, the driver installs ok, but when it tries to get an IP, the adapter only retrieves a self-assigned IP (169.x.x.x)
Subtract RAM down to 2GB and it works just fine. Tested on two Windows 7 64-bit systems.

Other Thoughts: Others have reported different symptoms with => 4GB RAM, and Marvel (chipset maker for the card) has apparently said it will NOT be fixing this issue.
O chipset developers. . . I don't think it's a big secret we want 64-bit systems so we can install LOTS of RAM

1 out of 5 eggsBuy something else

Pros: It is a gigabit NIC.

Cons: Connection drops suddenly. After a few hours/days I can't even ping anything, local or remote. Windows claims the cable is still connected. Disable the NIC and re-enable then all is fine for a few more hours/days. I went back to my onboard NIC and everything is just fine now.

Other Thoughts: Spend a few more bucks and buy a different brand.

1 out of 5 eggsPiece of garbage.

Pros: None

Cons: It's just piece of junk, same problems as others around here and the drivers haven't been updated in ages. It's not usual to find updated network drivers for lots of wired network products but this company did not even bother to fix the problem. I knew their routers were really bad but got this card thinking even D-link can't screw up a simple PCI network card. Sure enough they did, can't ping or browse to my computer from anywhere on the network, and I can't get it to work no matter what. Mind you I am a system administrator and do this for living. Stay away from D-link until they go bankrupt, I will never buy another D-link product again even if they started making simple products like pens. A DGS-102T black pen will stop writing about 2 weeks after you buy it.

1 out of 5 eggsBlows up Win2K3 x64

Pros: I can return it

Cons: Immediately on enabling the driver (downloaded from D-Link) in Windows 2003 x63 R2 SP2, the even log began filling with events, and the CPU went to 100%. I thought this mughe be because it was not plugged into the network, but plugging it into the network made things worse.
This MAY work in other Oses (although there are a lot of postings on the web about problems with Linux), but it CERTAINLY does not work with Win2K3 x64.
AVOID.

1 out of 5 eggsDesigned for XP logo on it!

Pros: None that I can verify because the 3 that I bought (not from NEWEGG.COM though) will not install nor initialize in 6 systems running Windows Server 2003.

Cons: Will not run in Windows Server 2003; The box does say DESIGNED FOR WINDOWS XP, so maybe that's exactly what it means? (laughing) I have not had this much of a problem with a NIC since the Windows 98 times.

Other Thoughts: I did read from other users to disable your onboard NIC if you have one, but that's not a choice when you want to run two NICs in the system unless you want to purchase 2 and try to make them work. If you are replacing your onboard controller, then it may work for you, but if not and you run Server 2003, I don't recommend this one at all.

1 out of 5 eggsDLINK == Garbage

Pros: It was easy to install.

Cons: Fro the most part, it was dead after 1 day of operation. It worked intermittently (as always, Newegg made good ! - Thanks !). I went to an Intel 1000MT Nic instead, which worked fine (and still does).

Other Thoughts: That's it for me and Dlink. Evidently, they can't get it right using other chipsets either(this one used a Marvell chipset, not retek).

1 out of 5 eggsNon-functional on receipt...not worth the time to replace

Pros: None. Never functioned.

Cons: After multiple attempts to install the product, I finally just gave up.

Other Thoughts: D-link support was okay, but once given enough information that should have indicated the thing was busted, they still refused to believe it (claimed it was the cable -- the cable works just fine now on a gbit nic from another vendor, so I'm not down with them on that).

1 out of 5 eggsEnd of LIfe

Pros: The tech support ends for this product in 6/07

Cons: DLink discontinued this model adaptor in Jun 05, they are giving this away free with their gamming router. I had problems installing the adaptor. DLink support is from outer space, they simply did not have a clue. First they repeated what the installation instructions said, the next message sent was for a notebook adaptor. The DGE-530T is a Desktop.

2 out of 5 eggsHit and Miss

Pros: Low price, good when it works.

Cons: This card worked as it should for years in an XP machine. That machine has since been retired and we had the need for it in a Win 2008 Server. Once installed the card began flashing "network cable unplugged" on and off - over and over again.

For anyone with similar issues - we fixed the issue by changing the advanced setting for the card with the "Configure" button | advanced tab | Speed & Duplex - change from Auto to 100 Mbps Half Duplex. Of course this means you will not be getting 1000 Mbps.

Other Thoughts: The only driver on their web site that would install was the 9.15.2.3 from 1/10/2007 - none of the other newer drivers would work.

Hope this helps someone.

Pros: Newegg shipped quickly, as usual.

Cons: Am still getting "limited connectivity" message. Have moved card to different Pci slot, Uninstalled & reinstalled drivers...no use. Contacted the manufacture..was told that if the drivers were installed correctly, ( i installed the "latest drivers),..its my problem!!

Other Thoughts: Am attempting to replace a 1gb nic that gave up..I have a 1gb swith + 5e cables, Everything worked fine before...But not now. So i am stuck with it. I use the 1GB cards & switch for file transfers between my 2 computers. I have seperate 100 nic's for internet.

2 out of 5 eggsOK for Fedora, not for RHEL

Pros: Works out of the box with Fedora Core 6 or any recent (>2005) Linux kernel

Cons: At least for the ver. 11 build of this card, RHEL4 and CentOS4.4 do not recognize this card. They wrongly call the sky2 driver. The fix is to upgrade the kernel and modules, but that means VMware-server won't run -- which is why I bought this card to begin with.

Other Thoughts: The D-Link has sk98lin drivers for this card. That's wrong too -- newer kernels call the skge driver.

Pros: Okay if works as described but then of course what is so special about that? Pro? Fits in box. Excellent putty knife for shhetrock thanks DumbLink. Will try in Linspire box next before crushing.

Cons: Drops contact with Verizon DSL constantly ( will not stay alive ). Disable and enable repeatedly to keep going on internet. Packaged drivers, updated dfrivers, nada. Network wiz, nada. Force, nada. Hey look dropped already but I'm back.

Other Thoughts: H0LY garbage batman !!!

2 out of 5 eggsNot For Everyone

Pros: Slick, small, and reportedly fine WHEN it works. The board seems sturdy and the contacts seem solid. The accompanying documentation is thorough and the CD has a lot of stuff on it. Even comes with a half-height plate. Dandy specs for a dandy price, really.

Cons: Though this is listed a Mac compatible on the box, it does not work under OSX 10.4. Upon further research with the factory, drivers ONLY for 10.2 and that's it. No support nor will there ever be. Linux they got. Several versions of Windows they got. No Tiger or Leopard or newer (oh my!)

Other Thoughts: If you're running a 5 year old Mac system or more, then this thing is Mac compatible. If you're like me an only running a 2 or 3 year old system, then you're outta luck.

Pros: Gibabit at an affordable cost

Cons: Destabilized an XP_X64 and XP (32) operating system. Failures on resume from suspend. Sporadic boot hanging.

Other Thoughts: 3 cards all behaving the same way in 3 different machines with 3 different OS's (Linux, x64 and XP) Once I put the old cards (10/100 DFE-530tx+) everything went back to stable. I tried the skge, sk98lin and the "d-link" sk98lin with failures.

2 out of 5 eggsDisappointed

Pros: Installed easy with Ubuntu 10.4...

Cons: Transfer rates between another gig base XP Windows PC through my gig router (Netgear WNDR3700) did not improve 1 bit. The transfer rate actually dropped 2mb/s.

Other Thoughts: I installed this card in an older HP Compaq PC that with its 10/100mb/s on board Ethernet connection I could transfer files at a rate of about 17.5mb/s or so. After installing this D-Link 10/100/1000mb/s card I figured I would see an increase of speed during transferring files. Once the card was installed I transfered a couple of files to just see what the transfer rate would be. It turns out its actually slower than the on board Ethernet connection, transferring at 15.5mb/s to 16.3mb/s max. Both PC's show they are connected at 1000mb/s and was hoping I would at least see a transfer rate of 100mb/s but transfer rate came up extremely short... Will follow up on this once I install this same card in a newer XP PC to see if it works any better...

2 out of 5 eggsNOT a gigabit card!

Pros: It works great at 10/100.

Cons: It's not gigabit. I tried using the card on a working gigabit switch, and it could not establish a link speed over 100 Mbps. It isn't that 1000 is broken, it's not even there at all. I tried multiple drivers from D-Link and Marvell (who make the chipset on this NIC) and none of them had an option for 1000 Mbps. Other options like jumbo frames were there, however. This leads me to believe that the Marvell chipset is very much 1000 Mbps capable, but the D-Link card is not. They are selling it to people hoping they won't be on a gigabit network or won't notice the difference.

Other Thoughts: Save yourself the trouble and buy an Intel PRO/1000 NIC if you really need a gigabit card. If you are using 10/100, this is fine.

I've noticed MANY uneducated folk leaving positive reviews for this card, claiming "much faster internet." This is bollocks. Unless you have a dedicated fiber line, you aren't going to have an internet connection that can come ANYWHERE close to saturating 100 Mbps.

2 out of 5 eggsSimply Aweful!

Pros: Was able to get it working with Windows XP.

Cons: Does not seem to work with Windows Vista 64-bit. The only drivers I have been able to locate to date for Vista are 32-bit. Their 64-bit drivers are only for XP and 2003 and will not work in Vista.

Other Thoughts: This card has been flaky from the beginning. I had to play with drivers to make it work in XP. I deemed it a waste of time with Vista when I was unable to locate the proper drivers to begin with. Over bad experience.

2 out of 5 eggsDid not work in two machines out of 5.

Pros: works great in 3 of the systems i installed. no funky junk software included in driver software.

Cons: did not work in two machines and acted erratic in both. pci voltage or spec problems? who knows. They did not work in a 1yr. old dell, or a homebuilt machine with a 3 year old motherboard. It would connect, grab an ip address, and such, but transfer no data after that. I diagnosed the hell out of both machines to no end, and ended up putting back both 100mbit cards in, both working flawlessly. Driver installation method wasn't different in the 2 machines and i made sure i had cat5e.. even tried going down to 100mbps.. no dice, very strange.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Comes with the half-height bracket. Perfect for a low-profile PC with a dead onboard NIC. Gigabit... reasonable price

Cons: Software included on the installation CD hosed a Windows Vista install. Had to do a complete reformat to recover. When it came time to reinstall, I went out and downloaded the bare drivers from D-Link's website. Installation then went flawlessly.

Other Thoughts: Card works fine, but set me back several hours when its software broke Vista.

3 out of 5 eggsW2K? No joy!

Pros: Works well as long as you aren't using Windows 2000. Easy install, good price, Marvell chipset.

Cons: Install/driver issues with W2000. Be forewarned. There goes about 5 hours of my life I won't get back.

Other Thoughts: Works well for other OS, but I came across some issues here and there with W2K on the web, after I started having issues of my own. Install software. Install card. Upon boot, Found Hardware wizard tries to install driver. No matter what sequence/option (auto, manual, update) it will not work. Each time upon reboot, W2K tries to install new driver and hoses the card, disabling it. Went through 4 layers of Dlink support, including upper level biz support. Nobody could make it work. Tried 3 different drivers, Ver 5, 6.23 and 7.00 - still no luck. Gave up. W2K is fully updated - SP4. Mobo is GB K8VM800 Ver 2.0, but have come across issue with other mobos. Bios is up to date. As long as the install works cleanly, you're good. But beware of this endless "loop" with rare W2K instances. We kept the Win XP cards. Rest went back, replaced with Intel GB NICs.

Pros: This NIC works just fine for 10/100 networks.

Cons: This NIC will NOT reach the Gigabit speed on a Gigabit/1000 network. The older PCI bus speed cannot provide this functionality.

Other Thoughts: Probably, if PCIe bus is used instead, Gigabit is achievable.

3 out of 5 eggs50/50

Pros: Not alot of good to say about these cards. I guess

Cons: Deployed 4 in a small network on 4 identical pc's. 2 can run at 10/100/1000 and 2 can only run at 10/100. Switched them to pc's that had them at gigabit and they still only ran at 10/100. It would try to set them at gigabit but the network would constantly7 drop so removed them and just replaced. For the price it want worth my time to chase the issue.

Other Thoughts: As a person that has used alot of Dlink. I think they just dropped the ball on this one. I don't hold it against newegg or dlink. I should have just done a little more research. So I gave it 3 egg's since it was 50/50 on them working but the ones that did worked just fine. And did install and work with no issue on 2 pc's.

Pros: Great speed
Works on x64 bit systems including Windows 2003 Server x64 bit.
Great value

Cons: You must have a working gigabit router/switch to use.
Make sure your switch or router is capable of this. Also, other computers must have a gigabit card in them.

Other Thoughts: You can have just two computers with gigabit cards with a crossover cable connecting them for the full gigabit connection, but you must know how to configure this setup

4 out of 5 eggsDriver changed

Pros: Very cheap GB NIC that I have had no initial setup and uptime issues with. 5 stars when it comes to price and manageability.

Cons: I had bought one of these cards a few months back and noticed that the drive supported NIC Teaming. So I bought this exact same card again, through it in my home server, and the new card comes with a new driver that does NOT support the NIC Teaming option. So I tried installing the driver I received with the other (identical) NIC I ordered a few months back and BSOD! Had to remove the drive and use the new one to make it functional. Needless to say, I was a little disappointed that the main reason I bought a second one of these cards, it wouldn't even work.

Other Thoughts: 2 NICs are still better than one, so I just made one NIC my Management Port and the other NIC my Primary Data Port. If the NIC Teaming function would have worked with these cards (like the original NIC/driver showed) I would have definitly gave it 5 stars!

4 out of 5 eggsGood NIC at a good price

Pros: Easy to install.

Makes use of a good ol' PCI slot.

Does NOT use a Realtek "cheapset," uses a more robust Marvell chipset instead.

Gigabit speed.

Cons: Correct driver download from the D-Link website is confusing, what appeared to the the correct version led to a dead link. Finally just resorted to the older driver on the included disc and stayed with that.

Not an Intel chipset, but it's also not $50 more expensive.

Other Thoughts: I bought this as a standby unit to replace integrated motherboard NICs as the ubiquitous Realtek NIC chipsets seem to die time-after-time.

Sure enough, within 2 months another motherboard NIC died and this card was pressed into service. Once the correct driver version was resolved, this has been plugging along for about 4 months now with no issues so far.

4 out of 5 eggsSo far so good...

Comments: So far so good. Only two areas for improvement to keep it from getting 5 stars:

1) It has jumbo frame support, but only up to 9K. I have other cards that go beyond this limit.
2) The driver does not have a static setting for 1000Mbps. If it doesn't autodetect the network at 1000Mbps you'll have problems.

Other than that, it's a great adapter for the price range.

4 out of 5 eggsGood midrange card

Pros: Resonable speed for a PCI card at this price. In XP I get about 45Mb/s and in Linux around 67MB/s on TCP trasfers (ttcp) with an Intel PRO 1000MT card at the other end. You need to double the money spent to reach 100Mb/sec+. You can guess which card is that :)

SNMP support is also nice to have.

Cons: None at this price point.

Other Thoughts: Good value in Linux, less so in XP due to drivers. I used the latest from D-Link site.

Pros: Price vs Performance. Durability.

Cons: Could be slightly better on the performance side but what do you expect @ this price point.

Pretty sure the newest drivers enable a good size jumbo frame.

Other Thoughts: I've lost track of how many of these i've used/owned but at best i've only ever seen one die (and that's guessing) - Compared to a graveyard of linksys LNE* models.

Been using these for years+

4 out of 5 eggsWorks with Vista 64

Pros: Works with XP Pro, Vista 32 and 64 bit OS. Seems fast. (At least by what I can campare with my Motherboard ethernet ports.

Cons: Drivers on disk are still old. If you are going to use it for Vista 64 bit, get the drivers from another computer or ahead of time, and don't load the ones on the disk before installing the card as stated. (For Vista 64 bit anyways, the other two are fine)

Other Thoughts: I have not used this for gigabit connections yet, but I needed something to work with Vista 64 bit when my onboard ethernet went down. Works fine after set up. Cheap to boot also!

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Card

Pros: Cheap
Gigabit

Cons: Limited speeds
Wasn't free
Didn't come with a cable

Other Thoughts: Using this card in a FreeBSD 6.4 machine (FreeNAS) with a AMD Athalon XP +3200 and 500gb SATA I and II drives. I did some benchmarking with iperf and this card could only get to around 200mbit. Uploading to the card is noticeably faster than downloading from it. I really wasn't expecting much faster speeds than this since its PCI.

4 out of 5 eggsGood deal

Pros: 9k Jumbo frame support. Supports full gigabit bandwidth over PCI.

Cons: The card locks up if you play with flow control settings too much.

Other Thoughts: Standard 32-bit 33MHz PCI barely handles 1000Mbps. PCI bandwidth is shared with all PCI components. If you have a PCI-Express port free, it's probably best to go that route.

4 out of 5 eggsNot too bad

Pros: Once it's in & working, not had any issues.

Cons: There is pretty a much known issue where this NIC can have conflicts &/or not detect as a result of onboard NIC(s)

Assuming you bought this as a replacement for an onboard NIC, shut your on-board off in the BIOS and that should clear it up.

I had one older+ machine where a specific (earlier?) revision of this NIC didn't detect. - That machine had no onboard NIC

Drivers haven't been updated, but i'm not sure i've seen any problems w/them anyways.

Other Thoughts: I have 4-5 of these. Not all were the same revisions.

I gave this 4 eggs because once you get them working they are stable.

If you're having disconnect issues i'd imagine it has to do with the connecting switch/router/cable or onboard NIC being turned on.

4 out of 5 eggsReasonable Linux support

Comments: I purchased one of these cards to experiment with gigabit ethernet in Linux (kernel 2.6). These cards use the sk98lin driver in Linux. So far, I'm fairly pleased with it, though I'm unhappy with the lack of Wake-on-Lan support. I emailed the company, and they confirmed that WOL does not work with the current Linux drivers, so be warned.

Pros: Cheap, easy upgrade. NewEgg rocks!

Cons: Does NOT work with Windows Server 2003! Notice the "Desktop" portion in the title. Some other "desktop" models from different brands MIGHT work with XP drivers, but they won't be signed for Server 2003.

Other Thoughts: Read the specs. Not much there other than Vista. If you REALLY need to know if something works for your intended box, check the manufacturer's site. Not hard to do on NewEgg--Usually located under the "Manufacturer" tab.

Pros: Card installed easily without any issues, turned on the system and installed the drivers; card works like charm without any issues. (Windows XP 32-bit on a Pentium MoBo).

Cons: Doesn't do my taxes.

Other Thoughts: Motherboard network plug was going out, so we replaced it with a PCI NIC card. NIC card came with standard and low bracket for different case form factors. Took me less than 5 minutes to install and install the drivers; Gbps worked well with our gigabit network (it better have at least).

5 out of 5 eggscheap, but good gigabit card

Pros: Gigabit ethernet card. Has driver support for Windows 98SE thru Window XP.

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: The general advice on buying a network card is to buy a decent one, or else it would be a headache. I replaced my earlier no-name brand with this one for my old 98SE computer, and it has worked just fine.

Pros: I bought 4 of them. Followed the installation instructions. They all appear to be working fine.

Cons: None that I can see.

Other Thoughts: Others seem to complain about the drivers, but I installed the drivers with the install disk and everything worked fine.

Newegg sent 'em to me in a jiffy.

5 out of 5 eggsPlug and Play with Linux

Pros: Worked out the box with my installs of PCLinuxOS. Includes the low-profile adapter plates! Marvel chipset.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I struggled with a couple of Intel 10/100/1000 cards for over a week. They were not stable at all under Linux (probably a Linux driver issue). Would connect fine and transfer fast, but out of nowhere and for no apparent reason, they would disconnect.

Pulled them out and put in these D-Links and all problems vanished. These use the Marvel chipset and drivers are included with currently released Linux distros.

5 out of 5 eggsNice add-on to my aging PC

Pros: Added this card to my 7 year old PC (Windows XP SP3) so that I can use full gigabit transfer speeds of my D-Link router and Network Attached Storage (NAS). It definetely worked as my internet connection is better than ever and transfer speeds to NAS have inproved.

Cons: None that I can think of.

Pros: Exceptionally easy setup. Lots of control if you want it. The range and signal strength to my wireless laptop is great. Constant connection. Price

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Bought this to speed up my Windows Home Server backups. I was using a 7 year old 100mps D-link 624, which was very reliable. My subsequent backups now take less than 5 minutes.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat basic NIC

Pros: Have 5 of these running in a PFSense router with great throughput. Couldn't beat the price/performance of these cards.

Cons: Nothing - all 5 worked out of the box.

Other Thoughts: Compatable with PFSense

5 out of 5 eggsWorks fine on Win7 64bit

Pros: Purchased 4 months ago.
Easy install after going to D-link website and downloading driver 9.0. Has been trouble free and very stable. Not sure what the guys problem was with it not working on his win7 64bit system. Its been smooth as silk for me, and yes I have 4GB of ram. Was doubtful getting a network adapter at this price but over all I am quite pleased. Speed has increased a % or two over the onboard lan that died after 9 months

Cons: Lack of configuration options.

5 out of 5 eggsOld PC upgrade to Gigabit

Pros: Worked fine with installation in Win 7 32bit and Asus A7N8X Deluxe MB. See other thoughts on installation. Actual speed to send and receive 480MB file took 48MB/s and 36MB/s respectively (was 11 MB/s and 10 MB/s on 10/100 Mb NIC). Now I can watch HD movies without any stuttering.
Price point was good. Cat6 cables cost a lot more then this.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Initial installation caused the system to hand at shutdown. Until then everything looked fine. After this I was unable to reboot. I determined it was related to a faulty PCI slot (I think). I just relocated the card to another empty PCI slot.
I did not have to disable the existing 10/100 onboard NICs.

5 out of 5 eggsDriver versions a little shaky

Pros: Great name brand. Great features (WOL, Gigabit) on card. English speaking tech support.

Cons: Obviously you would want the "most recent" driver, right? Well, which one would you like to pick??

V8.39 ~ 10/18/2005 (from auto-update)
V6.23 ~ 12/12/2003 (website)
V5.00 ~ 12/22/2005 (included)

You'd probably say V8.39, because it's the highest version number, right? But wait, it's probably V5.00 because it was released 2 months later, and thus, therefore, should be the newest.

No, no. Accordingly to D-Link it's neither. After calling D-Link support inquiring about their website, I was told, "Basically, I guess to really figure out the driver differences, the lastest for the DGE-530T is the v6.23."

Other Thoughts: Not terribly pleased when tech. support can only "guess" you an answer.

5 out of 5 eggsFAST - STABLE - GREAT BRAND TOO

Pros: We upgraded our network and put these in all workstations - wow - what a difference in speed. We had workstations with integrated NIC's on the mb's that were rated at the same speed. But the D-Link NIC seems faster and more stable (some of the integrated NIC's can be a bit flaky.

I've used different brand NIC's over many many years. D-Link has been so much more reliable than the other brands that now I don't buy other brands even if they cost considerably less.

It just makes my life less stressfull to go with D-Link for NIC's.

Cons: D-Link can cost a bit more than the no-name cards (and even more than other NAME brand cards).

But sometimes you get what you pay for.

Other Thoughts: IMHO D-Link is the highest quality NIC that you can buy.
