5 out of 5 eggsBest PCI Network Adaptor

Pros: In my opinion this is the best PCI network adaptor. It is compatable across multiple operating systems, such as Windows, Linux, and FreeBSD.

Cons: It is just PCI, and thus has the limitations of the PCI bus.

Other Thoughts: If you need a PCI network adaptor get this one.

5 out of 5 eggsShipping

Pros: I ordered this card on 10/4 and noticed it was coming from antonline which kind of worried me a little. I had been busy and hadn't had the time to check emails for shipping until last night 10/7 where i found a tracking number with no information populated. But I revived the card today and the packaging is labeled USPS first class! they Rock! only paid for 5-7 day shipping and they sent it first class!

Cons: Nothing so far will know more in the future if any issues come out of this working like claimed in Linux environment!

Other Thoughts: I bought this for my home Linux server i built recently because It's a hinds 57 build out of parts I had laying around and the motherboard used only had a 10/100 on-board network. This server also hosts a team speak 3 a backup ftp for a hosting company I admin for, and a home file server. amongst other projects i work on and need tested within an actual Linux web hosting environment. I used to use Dell Power Edge 2850 rack mounts but got tired of the noise in the current location that the rack mount servers brought,. those will now be backup servers and only turned on as needed.

4 out of 5 eggsSomewhat compatible with VMware ESXi 5.5 U2

Pros: It's an Intel network card.
It doesn't get as hot as Broadcom and Realtek chipsets do, so it won't need an aftermarket heatsink.
This card is mostly compatible with VMware ESXi 5.5 U2 (but please see Cons).

Cons: The first time I plugged it in, VMware ESXi 5.5 U2 claimed that this network card was not on the hardware compatibility list. I turned off the computer, re-seated the card, and it now works fine. I'm more than a little bit concerned about this.

Other Thoughts: It's a bonafide Intel network chipset. The chip doesn't get as hot as most of the other PCI cards do (Realtek and Broadcom chipsets get frighteningly hot). I have some machines that do not have PCI and could use a network card that doesn't require an aftermarket heatsink.

5 out of 5 eggsFast!

Pros: Faster than the built-in NIC on my ASUS P5G41-M LE/CSM LGA 775 Intel G41 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard, which I found out after said NIC failed me. It fit in an old style PCI slot just fine, and works well. I mean, what else are you going to use a PCI slot for? A GPU? Not quite.

Cons: None apparent.

Other Thoughts: I'll grant you the ASUS motherboard is a bit dated, but so is this NIC, and it works well in combination. The Intel NIC's firmware is easy to use, especially if you're used to working with Intel motherboards, which I was using at the time, since I was working at Intel (not "for", "at") at the time. I wasn't an Intel employee, but I like the quality of their products. I am a professional system administrator, with more than 20 years of experience, so when I say my "tech knowledge" is "high", I'm for real.

5 out of 5 eggsWoks Great with Win7-x64

Pros: Win7x64/SP1 installs Microsoft drivers immediately.

The latest version Intel exactly match drivers are in the Intel v15.3 PRO driver pack on their support site. The file is dated 2010.05.04. The HWID is PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_107C&SUBSYS_13768086.

I did not find any matches in Driverpacks.Net

Cons: Slightly pricey, but who cares? The irritation of a poor product is remembered long after the pain of a higher price is forgotten.

Other Thoughts: I have used Intel NICs for years. They work great with high reliability.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks with VMware ESXi 5.x

Pros: Recognized by and works with both VMware ESXi 5.1 update 2 and also with VMware ESXi5.5 update 1. Works on both out-of-the-box, without the need to side-load drivers.

Cons: Price is a bit high for old tech

3 out of 5 eggsWorks... once configured

Pros: Wake on LAN works
Allows Windows Homegroup
Windows 7 recognized and used built-in drivers

Cons: Had to force the Link Speed and Duplex value to 1000 Mbps Full Duplex to avoid intermittent connection. Would not work for more than a few seconds sporadically in auto-negotiate. My router is using DD-WRT and DHCP for reference.

Other Thoughts: Power management allowed the computer to turn the device off to save power. If checked, when the computer is woke up from sleep it will not have a network connection until the adapter is disabled then enabled.
