From the Manufacturer
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.
Top Customer Reviews
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.
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.
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.)
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.

Could not get this to work in the computer that it was bought for, but it did work in another one so it was an OK purchase.Published 13 days ago by A. Freberg
Worked like a charm. Pulled out the old NIC card and popped the D-Link in and away we went. Still humming along like a champ.Published 1 month ago by SETH R.
This card works well, very reasonably priced, shipped quickly. However, I'm not sure if it's a dated model, but there are no Windows 10 drivers available for this model. Read morePublished 3 months ago by G Arthur
