TRENDnet TEG-PCITXRL Low Profile Gigabit Adapter 10/ 100/ 1000Mbps PCI
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Works great in old HP with Ubuntu 03/18/2013

This review is from: TRENDnet TEG-PCITXRL Low Profile Gigabit Adapter 10/ 100/ 1000Mbps PCI

Pros: It works with Ubuntu 10.04 on an HP Pavilion s7727c
Low cost, high bandwidth, low profile

Cons: None, really (or, as others are fond of saying, "It wasn't free")

Other Thoughts: I bought this for an HP Pavilion s7727c that I "inherited" and decided to use to replace my very old Dell that I had been using as a supplemental server at home. Since this HP only has one low-profile slot, I needed this to add the second Ethernet port, and it has worked great. The server runs Ubuntu 10.04, which recognized the card and started using it without manual intervention of any kind.

TRENDnet TEG-PCITXRL Low Profile Gigabit Adapter 10/ 100/ 1000Mbps PCI
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Inexpensive, low profile, high speed, works with Linux!

Cons: None so far. Well, it wasn't free.

Other Thoughts: I bought this to convert my daughter's ancient HP Pavilion S7727C desktop into a Linux box to run MineCraft servers for my kids and their friends (so it had to be visible on our internal network as well as exposed to the Internet), and this was the perfect fit (no pun intended) for the only expansion slot, a low-profile PCI slot. It plugged in, Ubunti 10.04 recognized it right away, and within a few minutes we were off and running, with the kids and their friends happily playing in two different MineCraft worlds hosted on there (which, thank goodness, no longer have to run on my main server). It seems pretty fast in comparison to other PCI NICs I have, although it's hard to tell for sure since the traffic on this port is bandwidth limited by the cable connection to the Internet, but as between this and the cable modem, it looks good.

D-Link DFE-530TX+ Fast Ethernet Adapter 10/ 100Mbps PCI 1 x RJ45
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Works with Ubuntu 10.04 07/03/2010

This review is from: D-Link DFE-530TX+ Fast Ethernet Adapter 10/ 100Mbps PCI 1 x RJ45

Pros: * It works in my Linux server.

Cons: * None!

Other Thoughts: I bought this after reading a number of reviews to ensure that it would work in my Dell Dimension 4500 (which has since become my home network central server running Ubuntu Linux 10.04). I plugged it in, Linux recognized it, and it works. No hassles. No complaints. No surprises.
