Coboc CY-CAT6-30-OR 30ft. 24AWG Snagless Cat 6 Orange Color 550MHz UTP Ethernet Stranded Copper Patch cord /Molded Network lan Cable
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: This long orange cable is just right. Works great at Gigabit Speed. Good length. The Orange color is just as visible as the orange on a long 3-pronged electrical extension cord. Very visible. Helps me to not trip over it, as it is streched across a walk-way area in my apratment, across the floor. It takes the signal from my combo DSL Modem/Router from my ISP, which is in my bedroom, as that is where the phone outlet and power are, to a secondary Gigabit router in my living room, which is where all my computers are. Naturally each router has a different base address - 192.168.0.1 and 192.168.2.1 - no conflict in IP addresses. Two different sub-nets. Works great.

Cons: No problems. No cons whatsoever. Works great.

Other Thoughts: Color choice was either Orange or Yellow for visibility and the Orange cost less. I later ordered a 50-foot long Bytecc cable just like it for a seperate run. FYI -- Coboc == Rosewill == Newegg.Com house brand in cables. But this time it worked just fine.

TP-LINK TG-3269 Gigabit Network Adapter 10/ 100/ 1000Mbps PCI 1 x RJ45

5 out of 5 eggs Plug and Play for Linux! Very Pleased! TP-LINK TG-3269 04/08/2016

This review is from: TP-LINK TG-3269 Gigabit Network Adapter 10/ 100/ 1000Mbps PCI 1 x RJ45

Pros: I'm installing Linux on an *old* Micro-ATX motherboard. The motherboard network chip is only 10/100, so I disabled it in BIOS and plugged in this PCI Network card. The Linux install disk for openSUSE 11.1 32/64-bit, sees the RealTek 8169 chip no problem. RLTK 8169 chip is also seen by other distros - Red Hat, Fedora, CentOS, and Kubuntu. So I now have a Gigabit LAN PC whereas before I was stuck down at 10/100.

Cons: Really no Cons for this card. It's plug and play with Linux and also with Windows, multiple versions, as I know from personal experience. So no Cons whatsoever.

Other Thoughts: The RealTek 8169 chip-based PCI network card is my standard "Go To" card when I need Gigabit LAN and I only have a PCI slot available, regardless of OS - Windows or Linux. It works fine for BOTH. PLEASE NOTE: The RealTek 8169 chip apparently does NOT support Wake-On-Lan (or so I have read) but I never use that function so it is not a Con for me. Might be for you. Be warned. Also, I have had good luck using network adapters from TP-Link and I feel very comfortable recommending the TP-Link Brand products in general. I've used them for a router, a switch, and for both wired and wireless network adapters. All fine, and good with both Windows and Linux. But if you need Linux-compatibility, then use your favorite search engine and DO YOUR RESEARCH *BEFORE* BUYING! I did, and this net-card works well for both Windows and Linux.
