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.
Pros: Great performance, ease of installation, supports a great variety of operating systems, support for Gigabit.
Cons: Could be cheaper.
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.Read more ›
