asheenlevrai Posted July 12, 2021 Share #1 Posted July 12, 2021 (edited) Hi, As you could tell from the threads I started about issues with quad-port NICs from DeLock (Realtek RTL8111G), I am in a pretty annoying situation. I am currently considering returning these cards and buy a different model. The following cards are priced close enough and uses the BCM5719 chipset (AFAIU) - HP 331T (HPE 647594-B21) - ThinkSystem Broadcom 5719 1GbE RJ45 4-Port PCIe Ethernet Adapter However, reading this, I wonder if it will work in ds3617xs with loader 1.03b. Or would I need extra drivers? Or wouldn't it work at all unless 918+ & 1.04b? All the aforementioned NICs are PCIe2.0 x4 Cheaper alternatives include PCIe2.0 x1 but I was told to avoid these since the bandwidth could be limiting (although theoretically PCIe2.0 x1 is just enough for 4 GbE concurrent connections) - DeLock 89025 (based on Realtek RTL8111F) - Exsys 6084 (based on Realtek RTL8153B) !!"The Product is in PCIExpressform factor with a built-in USB3.1 (Gen 1)Host Controllerand 4 USB3.1 Gigabit Ethernet Converters to provide an instant expansion of 4Gigabit Ethernet ports for your Desktop, Server and Thin-Client computers."!! Thank you very much in advance for your help. Best, -a- Edited July 12, 2021 by asheenlevrai Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
