Solution to my NIC needs
This review is from: StarTech EC2000S Dual Port ExpressCard Gigabit Laptop Ethernet NIC Network Adapter Card
Pros: Works out of the box
Cons: On the expensive side IMHO for a two port NIC High data rates tend to make PC unstable/unusable ... appear to interrupt the PCI-e video card on the PC as the NVIDIA monitor says it lost communication after I unplug the Ethernet cable when it becomes unstable.
Other Thoughts: I needed four NICs in my laptop to do concurrent packet captures. This was my only option as I couldn't find anything else. During high data rates it tends to lockup the PC (black screen) ... which can be resolved by simply unplugging one or both Ethernet cables from the NIC.
