Recommended PCIE x1 NIC (PCIE 3.0)

Question

Morning all

 

Wondered if anyone could recommend a GBit PCIE x1 NIC (3.0) that works with DSM 6.2.2+ please? Must be PCIe x1!!

DS3617 preferred!

 

Preferably 2 ports, but one will do fine..

safe would be to choose something that already has a driver in DSM so if things go south with driver support you won't depend on extra drivers

e1000e, igb

 

e1000e: Intel PCIe PRO/1000 82563/82566/82567/82571/82572/82573/82574/82577/82578/82583/Gigabit CT Desktop Adapter/PRO/1000 PT/PF/I217-LM/V/I218-V/LM/I219 LM/V
igb: Intel Gigabit Ethernet 82575/82576/82580/I350/I210/I211

both types are available as pcie 1x nic, i have both for testing

Gigabit CT Desktop Adapter for e1000e

the one with igb was sold as server nic i210T

both can be found on amazon

 

the information is also documented (but you can also open the dsm pat file with 7zip, hda1 and in side it in  /usr/lib/modules you find the kernel drivers that are part of dsm, but its kind of hard to make out the thing you are looking for in all this *.ko files)

Thanks.. Aye, been digging around in there - and had a go at adding drivers for 1.03b for a box I have (e1000e) but it didn't work.. Awaiting your custom.lzma!  :)

Have ordered a desktop adapter.. Thanks!
