4 out of 5 eggsDecent Card

Pros: Works as intended. Get very solid speeds off of my network. Did not use the Asus drives just let Windows 8 install there's. Able to stream media across my network just fine with the card as well.
Purchases this to replace the on board Asus one went out on my motherboard.

Cons: None at this time.

Other Thoughts: Seems like a lot of others havee issues with this card but I have yet to see any of these after two months of owning it at this time.

4 out of 5 eggsGood for non-gamers

Pros: Great for browsing the internet and downloading things.
No driver needed in Windows. It's just Plug-and-Play.
I got the same 40 download, 20 upload speeds that my motherboard's built-in NIC gave me.
Is able to stream 1080p from YouTube easily, assuming YouTube isn't having any trouble at the time.

Cons: The Mac OS X driver off of Asus' website doesn't work very well. It takes OS X about 30 seconds before I can browse the internet using that card.
The card doesn't work well for gaming. It gives good pings, but I kept being teleported around in maps, regardless of which game and which server I played in. I'm not sure if this is the card's fault or a simple fact of the PCI bus. PCI can't send and receive data at the same time. It has to very rapidly take turns switching between those 2 actions.

Other Thoughts: I bought this card because my motherboard's built-in NIC died.
I can't say anything about how long this card lasts because I've only owned it about 4 days.

1 out of 5 eggsDrops Connection Win 7 64

Pros: none

Cons: network dropouts

Other Thoughts: I've purchased several of these because ASUS is a trusted brand that I sell. This is a terrible ASUS product. The first one I installed keeps disconnecting and I have to constantly reset the network adapter to get it working again. It cuts out every time the computer sleeps. After hours wasted looking, there is no real driver support to fix this problem.

2 out of 5 eggsGood...for a while

Pros: Good throughput
Gigabit speed

Cons: Dropped connection
have to install drivers before it will connect at all.

Other Thoughts: It has been dropping the connection whenever I am doing intense transfers. Its weird, windows 7 detects the connection is lost, but is unable to repair it. To fix this issue, all I have to do is go to Control Panel>>Network and Internet>>Network Connections and disable the connection. Immediately re-enable it and it takes off like a shot. This is a major pain in the but as it happens every time. At the price I purchased this item at it is not worth returning. I will be getting a more expensive Intel NIC to replace it.
My router is a RT-N56U so you wouldn't think there would be any issues there. Plus I have several other computers connected to that router and they don't have any problems (wired or wireless).

Manufacturer Response:

Dear gogo809,

I am sorry the performance of the NX1101 caused you to replace it wit something else. If you have any questions or concerns with any other Asus product, please contact me at (ref#1043-1023). Thank you.

1 out of 5 eggsUnreliable

Pros: Cheap and fast

Cons: This NIC will not wake from sleep properly unless you disable the computers ability to turn the devise off. It will randomly stop working while the computer is on. You then must either disable then re-enable the NIC in device manager or restart you computer. updating the drivers did nothing to help with the poor reliability.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Erik,

I am sorry you are not satisfied with your NX1101, but if you would like to troubleshoot I'd be more than happy to help. Please contact me at (ref#1043-1018) if you have any questions. Thanks.

1 out of 5 eggsNot suitable for Linux use.

Pros: Hardware WOL header works.
Low profile bracket included.
Driver module (ipg) detected and loaded automatically in Debian Squeeze.

Cons: Very low throughput, even when connected to gigabit switched network.
Frequent dropped connections required restarting the interface (ifdown/ifup) to restore connectivity.

Other Thoughts: This card was intended to replace an Intel fast Ethernet adapter in an old Celeron workstation that I use as a file server. I picked this card specifically because I wanted the hardware WOL header.

I tested this card's performance by transferring a 1.5GB file using Samba to another computer attached to the same gigabit switch.

The highest transfer rate I saw using the Asus NX1101 was 4MB/s. Average transfer speeds were closer to 2.5MB/s. It took several tries to complete the test because the card stopped responding. I can't rule out a possible driver issue because I don't have any other cards that use the IPG driver to compare against. The lights on the switch indicated the card had connected at 1000Mbps.

The much older Intel (e100) card consistently saturated its 100Mbps connection, giving me transfer rates between 11.5MB/s - 12MB/s.

I'd return this card, but it's not worth what it'd cost to ship back.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear saeraphas,

I am sorry your NX1101 did not perform adequately enough for you. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me at (ref#1043-1019).

3 out of 5 eggsASUS NX1101 Gigabit Adapter

Pros: This item works well, when it works.

Cons: This unit disconnects when the OS (Win 7 x64) goes into sleep mode, does not reconnect coming out of sleep mode until reboot. Must turn off NIC power management to fix. This unit intermittently disconnects from the network, and network diagnostic must be run to reconnect. At 90 days of use, this unit now disconnects during file transfers, and requires reboot to reconnect.

Other Thoughts: I have used lots of ASUS products, for several years, but this network card has a problem. Drivers have been updated to no avail. ASUS tech support has failed to respond to online tech inquiries and warranty requests.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great

Pros: Pretty simple setup, had to go get drivers off disk, but thats not a big deal. Fast connection. This is the only Gigabit device I have, but many of my other devices are wireless 'n'.

Cons: I guess it could do the dishes for me too....right?

Other Thoughts: I got this because I just upgraded to wireless 'n' for streaming to the xBox 360. The windows media center experience on the xbox was not ideal. (This go through the network to a 'host' computer, and I was experiencing lag when browsing content on the 360, and it would drop all together if I was doing anything on my computer. Such as, streaming netflix).

Since my bottleneck was a 10/100 connection on my NIC, I got this to speed it up. It is much better now. Very peppy browsing content, and no more drops!

5 out of 5 eggsWorks well in Win 7 x64

Pros: Works. My integrated NIC was getting flaky as was my windstream internet. After fighting with ISP tech support and them saying it wasn't on there end I broke down and bought this card. Well, I know KNOW it is on there end, undoubtedly. This card allows me to stream video and audio to and from multiple computers seamlessly. Something a 100MB card just couldn't keep up with. I usually have at least 3 computers accessing files from the computer I installed this in and never have a LAN hiccup. Also, this DOES work with my Linksys Router (E2000) as well as several switches I own (Cisco catalyst...several, 3com superstack...several...cnet el-cheapo, and an old Nortel switch I've got). The previous poster may not be used to network configuration to that extent or something of the like, I'm not one to criticise others when I'm un-aware of their situation.

Cons: Drivers are a bit odd. Windows 7 Pro x64 doesn't automatically find drivers for this card so you need to manually direct the "Hardware wizard" to the CD directory. No big deal there. Windows automatically detects it as an NIC and CAN use it at 10/100 but that defeats the purpose I bought it for...I wanted Gigabit. One thing to note, however, If you are expecting to get transfers of 1000mbp/s, take note that such speeds are not possible on a PCI bus. The maximum transfer for the PCI bus is around 233mbp/s. This is no fault of the card, it is purely the interface on the board. Just be aware that you will never see anywhere near the gigabit speeds this card "supports" because of the interface you are using.

Other Thoughts: My router displays that this card IS connected at 1Gigabit, (It has a Green NIC activity light on the router, not the standard blue common for 10/100) Several switches also indicated 1Gbit so it DOES offer as much as the PCI slot will give it. I do notice hesitation when I am streaming media (.avi's and .mkv's especially) to 2 or more machines, but that is very minor and doesn't really impact the playback. I only have 1.5TB of space on the machine this is used in so streaming through this card isn't absolutely necessary. I have not attempted to use it in my media server need to even try, but I imagine it would fail to stream the content necessary. (8+ TB of storage, so that one is accessed the most to watch video from HTPC and other machines that are used to watch/entertain)

Note: All my drives are mapped locally so that is why there are fewer problems. These machines are not set up on a domain and then media accessed. Well, deliberately setup on a domain.
