Performance observed is good. Only 1000 Mbit environment was tested (1000 Mbit switch and 100Mbit router plus cable TV modem). Anyway everything seems to „fly” in comparison to RTL8139.

Switches tested

  • SD 2008

  • SG 200-08, manageable

We hope that in virtual network computing environment(VNC) this card will be very useful.

TODO

  • driver for RTL8169 on CardBus
