1 Gbit/s Ethernet NIC under CentOS
 
Hello listmates,

As some of you may know we have been having a really bad problem with
Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL-8169 cards. See here for details:

http://forum.nginx.org/read.php?24,140124,140224

So now my question is, what PCI 1 Gbit/s Ethernet adapters should I
use under CentOS? If you have had a consistent positive experience
with any particular chipset/brand please speak up.

Thanks.

Boris.

Well, Realcrap is known to be crap everywhere. Ask the OpenBSD guys. ;)

Intel. Broadcom. That's what we use here w/o any issues; however, there
are some Intel NICs that are *not* able to handle Jumbo Frames due to an
internal design glitch.

HTH,

Timo

Seconded. I have a load of Intel 82576 and 82571EB's, and there have been
no issues at all, including with Jumbo frames.

Thirded. :-) Same thing here, even with generic Intel 1 GB Ethernet cards.
