Product Description

10/100/1000 Gigabit Desktop Adapter

From the Manufacturer

The D-Link DGE-530T is a 10/100/1000Mbps copper Gigabit PCI card for servers and workstations. Current systems running at 10Mbps and 100Mbps can be upgraded to Gigabit Ethernet, eliminating network bottlenecks, and increasing productivity. Integrate Gigabit now and you can save time, money, and downtime because the DGE-530T will automatically detect and run at higher speeds when it becomes available.

The DGE-520T is a cost-effective with scalable migration. As an inexpensive alternative solution to fiber-optic, the card allows you to instantly upgrade to Gigabit without requiring you to install new, expensive fiber cables. Gigabit Ethernet uses your existing Category-5 cabling while providing you with 10/100/1000Mbps network speed auto-sensing and full/half duplex auto-negotiation.

With advanced features and security, the DGE-530T supports SNMP for remote troubleshooting and management, ACPI for lower power consumption, and WoL for remote wake. This helps to lower total cost of ownership (TCO). The card also features on-board screening of VLAN Tagged Ethernet frames, allowing you to assign multiple subnets to each server and isolate devices within each VLAN from the rest of the network for better traffic control and security. It also supports 802.1p Priority Tagging to allow you to prioritize traffic. The card also features embedded flow control and independent FIFO, providing a means to protect against possible data loss during transmission on the network. With the Cable Diagnostic feature, the card will automatically detect whether you have a bad cable, making your troubleshooting task easier.

By Y. Bildeyenko on January 31, 2007
I'm having the same connectivity issues as the other two reviewers (Noah and Casey). We have two servers where I installed the cards, running Windows 2003 Standard Server with SP1 and all updates; the servers are connected to 3COM gigabit switch. The connection starts just fine, but it cuts off in about 2 to 4 min of medium file traffic, and the servers become inaccessible - not even responding to pings. The card needs to be reset to restore the connection - only to drop it again in the next 3 minutes. We tested the switch to ensure it's working, and we tested the cabling, as well, - everything seemed working fine. Finally, we gave up and installed more expensive Intel 82541PI Gigabit cards. No problems since then.

I got this card after my on-board Gigabit adapter failed. I looked around and this was the best choice for an inexpensive Gigabit network card with Linux support. I have purchased close to 10 of them for my home office network and am very satisfied. I've since put in two D-Link switches, a D-Link WAP, and a D-Link VPN router.

My usage is limited to mostly the transfer of a lot of small files, but there are some occasional largish files. By upgrading my network to 1000 Mb/s (NICs, switches, and even cat5e cable), I now average ~35 MB/s for disk-bound file copies, which for me is great compared to my 100 Mb/s rate of ~5 MB/s. (Edit: the 35 MB/s is over Samba, I can get speeds of ~50MB/s over HTTP.) I am *not* a network engineer or sys admin so it's quite possible that one could achieve better/faster/higher rates.

Also, this NIC comes with a "faceplate" for slim profile computers. It's fairly easy to swap with a small Phillips screwdriver.

Highly recommended!

First after reading most of the reviews I have to say that gigabit does not "speed up" your network. It will not allow you to transfer Access files faster, or to copy files faster (usually). You are almost ALWAYS limited to your hard drive speed, and the operating system.

Where we see a huge increase is in applications that talk back and forth to each other using sockets (database servers being a good example - NOT access which is a file share). We have apps internally that exceed 600 megabits / sec with these cards. We have the card installed under Server 2003, FreeBSD 5.x and 6.x, and Red Hat Linux.

Samba is not a benchmark tool, and is usually a huge bottleneck for most LAN's. If you want to test the network card use an ECHO server, or some other benchmark tool.

The big gain on this card is that it supports full duplex gigabit. Some of the other low end cards are non dma cards (all of the transfers happen from CPU, not hardware). This makes a huge difference in throughput. Some of our internal applications have seen a drop in CPU usage over the previous 100MB cards that were non DMA systems. The only exception is the Intel Etherexpress PRO Gig S card. It uses a hardware chip for SSL encryption as well and can save a lot of CPU for web servers that use SSL.

Verified Purchase
This is NOT as advertised, a Marvell chipset card. If you look at all three pictures they clearly show a Marvell chip with the "M" logo (It's upside-down in some of the pictures)

What I got is the RealTek chipset. (See my picture, clearly showing the RealTek 'crab' logo.) I specifically payed extra to get away from the flaky RealTek cards (as cheap as 8 bucks) which I have not been able to get working with my mobo. Unacceptable.

This may or may not be relevant to you.

I think at some point D-Link must have been manufacturing this card with the better, more expensive Marvell chip but changed to the cheaper RT chip at some point without changing the model number. The cover-art on the box I got shows the RT logo on the photo but not on the picture of the box shown by Amazon.

Guess I'll be shelling out for an Intel NIC or making the drive out to the last remaining tech store in the area that hasn't been Best-Buy-ized.

(If you don't understand what the term "chipset" means or what is wrong with Best Buy, this review probably is not relevant to you. If you are planning to buy this to do gaming, heavy lan stuff or VoIP this will be of considerable relevance to you.)

Works on Windows 7 64-bit with 4GB RAM, but ONLY if you download and install D-Link's Feb 2011 (or more recent) drivers BEFORE you install the card. It is also a good idea to remove or disable any other NIC you may have on the same computer. Unless, of course, you need the other NIC. Since most machines now have a NIC on the motherboard, this involved disabling the NIC in BIOS. For example, with Phoenix BIOS, you would set "Onboard LAN Controller" to "Disabled".

These February 25, 2011 drivers from D-Link are the first to support Windows 7, so please take that into consideration before reading older reviews. Last night, when I was deciding what to buy, to replace my failing NIC on my Intel motherboard, reading the reviews of all the different affordable Gigabit NICs, I came away wondering if there was any that I should buy, i.e. - that would actually work on a 4GB 64-bit Windows 7 system.

For the record, my DGE-530T Hardware Version is listed as B2.
