My old eMachines T1150 has no built-in NIC. Two cheap 10/100 NICs were not recognized by Solaris 10 x86 (actually, Solaris Nevada b69). I finally decide to buy the Intel PWLA8391GT PRO/1000 GT PCI NIC since I read it used the Solaris e1000g driver. Sure enough, it worked for me. My PC has a 1.3GHz Celeron, 384MB RAM, and two 40GB 5400 RPM disks, so the throughput on the NIC is probably limited by the hardware around it. Thought I'd pass this info along in case there are Solaris folks out there looking for compatible PCI NICs. I believe there's a PCIe version available too.

I needed a Gigabit NIC card for our Windows 2003 Server and I ended up choosing this one. Great price for a great card. Installation was a snap. I installed the drivers first, then powered down the server and installed the card. After rebooting the server it found the drivers and went right to work. Been performing perfectly ever since. Thanks Intel for making another great network card.

In my family we have a network which has grown and grown. Our LAN has become increasingly significant to us. We recently upgraded our primary switch from fast ethernet (10 / 100 ethernet) to gigabit ethernet (10 / 100 / 1000 ethernet).

The majority of our older PC's couldn't support gigabit ethernet. We were using the old ethernet capability which came with the PC's (the integrated ethernet on the PC motherboard). These older PC's supported fast ethernet, which is slower than gigabit ethernet.

When looking for a new gigabit card to upgrade these PC's, my goal was not only gigabit speed, but also overall performance, then price.

There is no shortage of inexpensive ethernet cards, not only here at Amazon, but at other online stores (who shall remain unnamed :). Few had the high reviews of this intel ethernet NIC, and few seemed to claim performance enhancing technology.

The price for this card is slightly higher than other gigabit cards, but we have noticed a performance improvement even when using fast ethernet (the old ethernet). These cards can offload some of the overhead your PC CPU would normally handle. The result is an improved internet and LAN experience.

These are small PCI OEM cards. At first I thought they were missing status LED's as there were holes in the back where LED's usually sit. It turns out the LED's are flat on the card and shine through the holes in the metal on the back.

I downloaded drivers for this card from the intel.com website before installing them. It was necessary to have drivers for this card before switching over to it on Windows XP Home. Windows Vista immediately installed drivers on boot, as did the Windows 7 RC.

While I don't use Linux, this card has extensive Linux support, great Windows support, and is overall a well built ethernet device. I would purchase again in the future is new cards were needed.

I got this NIC around the holidays because one of my desktop's onboard NIC was acting funny. So I purchased a few, and after I installed it into my desktops, it worked immediately. The computers are all dual boot workstations with Windows XP Pro and Kubuntu 7.04, and all computers worked with both OSs right away. However, I chose to install current drivers to get full access. It works well with my gigabit switch, where the limitation is due only to other computers with 10/100 NIC. Because I am used to comps with 10/100 cards, I see a significant difference in transfer rate between computers with this card installed!

Pros: Great performance, ease of installation, supports a great variety of operating systems, support for Gigabit.

Cons: Could be cheaper.

From everything I read about this Intel network adapter card, it should have worked well with my computer on which I had recently installed Windows 7 64-bit Ultimate. However, when I had trouble getting it to work correctly after a normal install, I searched the Intel support website, only to find that Intel supports only a very few of their network adapter cards under Windows 7 64-bit, and this is not one of them. While I accept it as my mistake that I bought the card without checking the Intel support site for compatibility before I made the purchase (the Amazon product descripton provided no indication of Win 7 compatibility), I strongly suggest that anyone planning to purchase an Intel network adapter check the Intel support site for compatibility with Windows 7 before pulling the trigger.

I replaced my cheapie gigabit nics (Realtek chipset) with the Intel nics and the difference is like night and day under Linux. 50MB/s file transfers are now the norm. You can go cheapie on most other computer parts but don't do it with nics under Linux.

I'm always leery when upgrading computers, especially when you're going to replace an original component. Especially older computers where one component doesn't meet the latest standard that you weren't aware of, or upgrading one component doesn't help because there's another bottleneck with one of the other components. You know the drill - all of a sudden you're up a creek without a paddle and nothing works, you can't connect to the internet, can't even boot sometimes. What should be a 10 minute upgrade in many cases turns into 4+ hours, in many cases because of some little issue that wasn't clearly explained or documented.

In this case, upgrading to the Intel Pro/1000 GT Gigabit NIC in my 2004 era Dell Dimension 4600 REALLY WAS only 10 minutes. Very easy, no hassles. Well, actually 30 minutes because I'm paranoid and read these reviews for advice before actually pulling the switch.

Here's the drill (Dell Dimension 4600 with original on-board 10/100 NIC, running XP Pro):

1.) Make sure you have the driver CD that came with the package ready.
2.) Unplug the power from your computer (and disconnect all other devices so you can open the box).
3.) Open the computer, remove the back cover plate from 1 of the empty PCI slots (you do have 1 empty PCI slot right?), and then shove this network card (firmly) into the PCI slot. Screw it down with the screw from the cover plate (that you can now throw away).
4.) Close the computer and plug everything back in (remember to plug your ethernet wire into your brand new Gigabit NIC (not the old one), LOL.
5.) Turn on your computer. After Windows has loaded, etc., insert the driver CD that came with the package and let it do its thing.
