4 out of 5 eggsSolution to my NIC needs

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.
