Subject: Query on dual/quad port NIC

Susmit,

I'm looking for a PCI-based dual (preferably) quad-port NIC. The card
needs to work (preferably with all 4 ports functioning) on Fedora/CentOS (Linux
kernel 2.6.26 and upward (i386 arch))

thanks

Susmit,
Intel does a lot of them, and they almost certainly will work with
Fedora/RHEL.


Regards,
Tristan

Any Broadcom/Intel (bnx/e1000) cards that have gone through the Red
Hat Hardware Certifications should be a safe bet. (check the product
specs for a card similar to what you want, then go to
hardware.redhat.com to see if that server is certified. If so, there
is a good chance of support.

Alternative, check bugzilla/git.kernel.org for commits related to the
NIC model#.

Default Help requested:Query on dual/quad port NIC

Hi,

Depends on which PCI interface is meant.

PCI:
D-Link DFE-580TX uses sundance driver

PCI-X 133MHZ:
Intel PWLA8494GT Pro/1000GT uses e1000 driver

PCIe:
HP NC364T, 4x 1000Base-T, PCIe x4 (435508-B21)
Intel Gigabit ET Server Adapter, 4x 1000Base-T, PCIe x4, low profile
(E1G44ET)
Intel PRO/1000 PT Server Adapter, 4x 1000Base-SX, PCIe x4 (EXPI9404PF)
Intel PRO/1000 PT Server Adapter, 4x 1000Base-T, PCIe x4 (EXPI9404PT)
Intel PRO/1000 PT Server Adapter, 4x 1000Base-T, PCIe x4, low profile
(EXPI9404PTL)

all use the e1000e driver

I googled them and looked at what chipset they use. I haven't actually
tested them.

Hope this helps.

Felix

I know you have already received several recommendations... but I did
not see this one amoung them.


SUN created a quad port NIC many years ago... they called 'Happy Meal'
because it was based a chipset called 'Big Mac'.


They routinely sell on ebay for less than $20 (USD).

Here's one example:
http://cgi.ebay.com/SUN-4-PORT-NIC-CARD-10-100-QUAD-ETHERNET-501-5406-64BIT_W0QQitemZ370281441147QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLH_D efaultDomain_0?hash=item56367e677b


I know these work... because I have 2 of them I've used in the past.

Here's a page on the gadget: http://www.x1034a.com/
That'll give you the majority of the Technical Specs.

That is great!!!! I appreciate all the helps, please don't take it
otherwise, but this person was looking for a cheap solution so I
think this will be perfect.

> I know these work... because I have 2 of them I've used in the past.

This is the best part.
Thanks a lot!!!!
