Gotta be a good price for a gigabit adapter?

It is indeed a good price, and I was looking for a 1gigabit to upgrade a server still using 100mb onboard, thank you :)
#2
Standard PCI can handle the speed then?
#3
Good deal if you need one, but most motherboards have gigabit Ethernet on-board.

266 MB/second on PCI 32bit Bus running at 66mhz, 1000Megabit network speed is really about 125 Megabytes, so yes it should handle it, though in fairness the PCI bus shares bandwidth with everything on the PCI bus, and in some cases that can be IDE/Sata ports even if integrated into the board.

My onboard Gigabit port is faulty.
It only delivers 100mbps so this is perfect for me :)

A quick word of warning, network bridging and Wake-on-Lan dont apparently work with these... But they can be used in hackintoshes with no problems
#8
I should say don't appear to work as I have first hand experience
#9
Ive allways wondered... why do a lot of these cheap ethernet cards include a blank DIL Socket on the pcb? Anyone know?

Bridging is an OS-level function, so I'd be very surprised if this NIC caused that. The NIC shouldn't even know that bridging is occurring!
#12
I think it's a problem with it's driver not making it not enter promiscuous mode correctly. If anyone could get it working I'd be very grateful if they told me how (I had both wol and bridge working fine with onboard 100mbps ethernet before I upgraded the card and switch)
#13
This looks to be Realtek based. I bought a couple of these for a Linux server but ended up binning them and buying Intel as the Linux driver support is terrible - there's an on-going bug that means sometimes they will go into sleep mode and won't wake up again.

That is a shame - Realtek as a common budget card was always a safe bet with Linux. I certainly remember having driver issues with Intel cards (which are much more complicated), although to be fair they got sorted very quickly.

Anyway, to my knowledge PCI cannot usually deliver full gigabit speed. But it is close, and certainly a lot faster than 100base-T. Wake-on-Lan is possible in theory, but depends on the right combination of card, PCI standards and BIOS support...

Excuse my ignorance on this, but will this work on my Dell Inspiron laptop?
My internal wireless card is broken and with the nature of a laptop I have already broken 3 of the USB wireless adapters!

No, this is a pci card for a desktop machine, they are too big for a laptop.
#17
I have one of these that i bought through Amazon for around the same price.. 1 / 3boots it wont pick up an internet connection.. I need to reboot to get it to work again.. it appears to work fine on the local network so i'm not sure what the issue is.

Ok, Thanks Andyfrommk. Any tips on what card I should get?

Inspiron 1720 model number PP22X, running on Vista and using Virgin Media Superhub.

May get another usb dongle, but thought a card may be better for signal and not get broken as easy!

These cards work perfectly with Linux which is to be expected as they have a common Realtek chipset. The comment about these cards going to sleep under a Linux operating system has nothing to do with the card and its driver.

That's not what launchpad says: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/347711 . It seems there are still unresolved issues, especially with going to sleep and with the connection going back to 100base-T (power save mode).

This wireless card is only £3.45 and it says it will fit a inspiron 1720

Thanks for that Andy, great price but comes to over £21.00 with delivery! Found similar ones on ebay for less than a tenner delivered, so thanks again for the heads up
