3 out of 5 eggsIt worked when a better reviewed NIC did not

Pros: Works with older hardware.

Cons: Linksys support pretty much non-existent. The Linksys brand seems to like it is being purposely killed off by Cisco.

Other Thoughts: Linksys used to be my "go to" brand when it comes to all things networking. It just seems like ever since the Cisco-Linksys merger that Cisco really wants to just kill off the Linksys brand.

I recently upgraded my home network to giagabit, and wanted to get a pair of NICs to throw in my kids old computers. Based on the number of positive reviews here at newegg, I bought a pair of intel Pro 1000 GTs, but could NOT make them work. I bought two cards and tried them in two separate (but identical) computers. I tried different PCI slots, BIOS update, and BIOS settings. Nothing worked. The computers would lock up on the XP logo splash screen. I put in a pair of these Linksys NICs and they work fine.

4 out of 5 eggsWin 7 64 bit drivers..yep! RTL8169

Pros: Gigabit ethernet, successfully works as part of an adapter team with mobo for 2 Gigabit Team! It's feature rich, rock solid reliable (I use it as a test mule for friends & family tech support) and seems to take cables other adapters refuse to. I subscribe and download to Newsgroups, and I get far fewer errors than others seem to have with my provider.

Cons: I had to break 1 egg because of horrible manufacturer driver support. Looking at the comments of others here and checking driver dates, I think Cisco said no support of pre-merger Linksys products as the last date these drivers updated was in 2004. !!!

Other Thoughts: If you search for RTL8169 drivers x86 & x64 they work like a charm. These drivers have more features than the branded ones from 2004.

I know there's other variables, but the throughput of this adapter allowas me to stream 1080p movies from my desktop to Linksys WRT310n running DD-WRT wirelessly to PS3 media server without any problems.

4 out of 5 eggsWindows XP drivers

Pros: When you can locate the right driver, this card works well. I'm running the EG1032 under XP SP2 on a Dell Dimension 2300, and now that I have the right driver, am quite pleased with the boards performance (no network problems) on my Gigabit home network.

Cons: Linksys apparently clears out support from their web site as soon as sales start to drop off. After not finding the XP drivers on their support site, I searched with Google and found many frustrated user posts looking for drivers for this board. I called and worked for too long a time with Linksys tech support to finally learn that Linksys Singapore site is the only site left with the drivers I need. I was told this is because Singapore still has good sales for this card.

Other Thoughts: Linksys/Cisco management needs to be less officious about new sales and more supportive for existing customers by at least leaving existing drivers on their support site. If newer drivers (like Windows 7) can be found on another site, like Realtek since the board is based on Realtek chips, then links to these drivers need to be provided on Linksys Support pages. Disk space is inexpensive enough, there is no need to remove slightly older product support.

4 out of 5 eggsTo those with bad reviews

Pros: Please read the specifications. This card is geared towards LTSP, VMWARE, and other network operating systems. This card easily enables one to run a virtualized workstation from a server with very little setup.

Cons: Misleading description.

Other Thoughts: Really cool because you can use your old computers in an office to run brand new operating systems and graphic heavy programs over the network. Basically you can turn your old computers into (not so) "Thin Clients

3 out of 5 eggsTypical Linksys Product

Pros: Nice Gigabit ethernet port for my Dell 5150-
Easy install, as all PCI items are-
It's a Linksys product, so quality is terrific.

Cons: Quality might be terrific but support sucks! Same as most other owners- NO support for Windows 7!

Other Thoughts: I for one can't understand why Linksys does not provide a driver package for Windows 7! Luckily though, with some crafty investigating skills I was able to use a Realtek 8169 driver package and it's already in Windows 7 so I just had to get it loaded up to the Linksys in 'Device Manager'. After finally getting it working it makes my Dell 5150 seem like a different computer.

5 out of 5 eggsIron clad

Pros: I purchased a couple of these to liven up the home network between my server and my desktop (both pretty old). I had absolutely no issues with my Linux server or windows desktop recognizing them and getting them up and running without a hitch.
Now the backups that used to take 3-4 hours take about 25min... I recommend this for anyone with a slightly older computer. (i.e. no gigabit lan on their mobo)

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: none

5 out of 5 eggswhere do you people think drivers come from?

Pros: I've used cards from various manufacturers, both with Realtek and Marvell chips on 'em. They all work great if you get the proper software. Who better to provide that than the chip makers? If you want the latest and greatest, you go to their site and get it. You more often than not find better support there than the hardware vendors provide, e.g. there is a number of products that have support for Mac OS via the chip maker but the hardware vendor only targets the Windows crowd.

Cons: There are people out there i.e. Windows users, that have always been spoon fed and have never had to figure out how to get software to work the way Linux and Mac OS users do.

Other Thoughts: Linksys is notorious for changing chipsets on a whim, making their hardware a risky proposition for use with Mac OS systems. Marvell does not offer support, while Realtek support is included. I got a Marvell based card once, luckily I needed to put one in a Linux box and it was supported there. I look for Realtek normally.

5 out of 5 eggsIn defense of Linksys and their outstanding products

Pros: I have put these cards in several machines. A Dell Optiplex G-270, a HP Pavilion a807h, and a handful of others that I upgrade NICs in. This card usually plugged and payed out of the box and life was grand. Worst case I either ran Windows update or went to the Linksys site and downloaded their driver with the old and new cards installed (old card installed so I could access the internet and load the driver for the Linksys card).

Cons: It doesn't do back-flips for people.

Other Thoughts: As for Linksys and their support. If it works why fix it?!? Win 7 driver, Vista driver, XP driver, even if it's labeled a Win 98 driver, who cares if it operates the way it's supposed to!!! I've never had an issue with Linksys and have used their routers and NIC cards for 10+ years!!!
