I installed windows on one of the machines, and the card worked nicely after I installed the drivers. I was able to connect it to the internet at 1Gbps, but I didn't test it for higher speeds.
My last test was to switch to Fedora, and scp between windows and fedora over these cards. I was getting very unimpressive results: windows -> fedora (~14MBps), fedora -> windows (~650KBps).
Bottom line is, if you're using Linux, don't get this card. In any case, don't expect improvements on latency.
My oldest daughter has a little HP desktop PC, and during a recent electrical storm her integrated network controller (built in to the motherboard) got zapped. Her system had one open PCI slot, for which I wanted to install a new network adapter, but I noticed that it was a low profile slot, which meant that I couldn't just run to my local electronics store and buy one. I searched a great deal on-line and found the StarTech ST100SLP Ethernet Network Adapter here on Amazon.com. The cost was very low, which kind of scared me a little, but I researched the product on-line and found that most people stated that it was a decent performer.
The product box contains very few items. Of course it contains the ST100SLP Ethernet adapter, as well as an installation manual and an installation floppy diskette. Yes, you heard me correctly; installation "DISKETTE". Most newer computers don't even come with a diskette drive any more so I was rather surprised to find this form of media, rather than a CD-ROM disk. Of course the drivers can also be downloaded directly from the StarTech.com website, in case anyone needs them.Read more ›
Unfortunately these cards are very unstable, as the connection often breaks during a simple file transfer, and cards become unresponsive, causing at least one (usually both) computers to have to be rebooted (usually force-rebooted), in order for the network cards to start working again.
The cards also freeze up the second you use any program (like WinZip, WinRAR) over the network.
Startech support tried to help but didn't find a solution. Perhaps the Tehuti Networks chip is the culprit.
For the expensive price this kind of unreliability is unacceptable.
I now plan to buy some much cheaper SFP+ Mellanox cards.
It needs custom built driver even on the most recent linux kernel.
Don't play too much by MTU adjustment. It can be set to a really weird number, even a billion, but then the card get stuck. A reboot is necessary. Probably a driver issue.
However, it works for now. I don't know anything about stability and performance yet.
