This one, cheap though it is, was the easiest to install. In Windows 7 64 bit, you just put in the mini PCI express slot, switch on the PC and Windows automatically downloads a microsoft realtek 64 bit driver from March 2011 - as oppose to old 2009 driver that is packaged with this item. Although the drivers do cover linux 2.4, 2.6, NDIS2, Novel netware client and server, W7 (32/64 bit) W2000, Vista 32-64 bit and XP.
It has a boot rom that adds a Shift-F10 option to your PC startup (before the OS boots) to allow a choice of ptotocol (RPL, PXE) and the Boot Order (Int 19h, 18H, PNP or disable). It has a proper wake-on-lan and supports jumbo frames 4 MTU. You can edit all this on the normal Windows control panel - devices - network card - properties - driver dialog box. But everything, apart from jumbo frames is auto-negotiated anyway. So you don't need to touch anything or even understand any of that - as it works out of the box.
I got speeds of around 30MB/s across my gigabit network (what's that, about 240mbps?), which is fine for shifing large files to the server.
The Maximum Packet size for Jumbo frames on this card is 4K MTU (not the 9K MTU of slightly more expensive ones - so if you've got a lightening fast BUS and SATA III disk then you might need 9 MTU)
Not had any problems with it - - and even if I did, I wouldn't care at this price.
The issue is that this card only has limited support for Jumbo Frames, Judging from the Drivers it supports 2k,3k and 4k. though i did try 3k and 4k frames gave me very slow throughput less than 2mb/s so they obviously wern't working very well.
The regular MTU of 1500 works ok though but it does mean that you will get alot of cpu usage to get anywhere near full gigabit speeds. perfectly fine for that extra speed above 100mbit/s you might encounter with ever faster internet connections.
It's a shame because most other brands if this card using the same realtek 8168 chipset support and work well with at least 7k frames( like my old PCI card this ones is replacing), most work with 9k frames, which this card does not. This card also lacks modern Ethernet power saving features too.
MY old PCI card I was able to get a solid 100+MB/s accoss the network, now not so solid 50-80MB/s.
It also works fine in Debian but only with a standard 1500 MTU too which is handy yet disappointing because there is currently no working driver for the Atheros 8151 onboard lan chip on many new motherboards (including mine) with the current (at time of writhing) latest stable Debian squeese kernal. Still miles better than 100mbit.
The bottom line is, If you know what Jumbo Frames are and want to use them this card is not for you. If you have a good PC from the last 5 years you probably have something better onboard anyway unless that failed or doesn't work with your Linux distribution.
The 'Auto-Negotiation' part of the card is what threw some of the reviewers, I think. One bright reviewer flagged the ability to interrupt the boot-up and configure the card to your own preference, which should solve the 'it wouldn't do anything' problem.
Anyway, my personal preference is not to be permanently on line. Pasting a shortcut to the 'Local Area Connection' in 'Network Connections' onto the 'Quick Start' bar, gave me the control I want. Left click the shortcut icon to connect to the network/internet, right click on the icon and choose 'disable' to disconnect - what could be simpler! Open the Local Area Network Connection properties and tick the 'show icon in the task bar when connected' and you can easily see your current status at a glance.
The ethernet card performed, and still does, superbly - and my wife was happy again. After all, the PC is hers. Mine runs Win7, with the same connection control in place.
