First of, I know CX4 is old and generally not the thing around these forums :) But since I got a bunch of HP 5120 EL switches thrown at me, all with 2 port CX4 10GbE modules installed and cables too, I really need the best advice/recommendation I can get, for a ethernet NIC with CX4 port(s)
This is somewhat of a repost of my post on reddit but maybe somebody here wants the nic before I put it up on eBay.
It's a X710-DA2 with full height bracket with latest FW applied which was just pulled out of my system yesterday (hence the timestamp from yesterday / my username on reddit sans...
I got two used Chelsio 110-1160-50 T520-CR nics off ebay.
One of them seems to work fine. The other works as expected, but after about 5 - 10 minutes, suddenly goes down. That is to say, in Freenas it reports as “down” in the interfaces menu, and in Windows it shows “Network cable...
It's quite hard to believe, but I couldn't find any information about creating a 40 Gbit home network.
My issue is simple: I live in a 3 room apartment. Since I need the 40 Gbit connection between the rooms, a DAC solution is out of the question - since the distance between the rooms is approx...
I have a need to upgrade to 10GE some servers based on Supermicro X10 motherboards which currently have built-in 1GE ports.
What would you recommend as reasonably priced pcie v3 network adapter which would support two 10GBase-T ports ?
Been looking for two days on ebay for network adapters...
I've seen the odd thread that suggests that the 7122 model is pretty good. Most of the models I've found are listed as:
I'm guessing these are cards from OEMs like dell/IBM etc. Does anyone have any experience with any of these models?
Does a break out cable which is known to work with connectx 5 should work out of te box without furteher setting (like ethtool) ? I am referring to a 100 GB cable with 4 x 25 ends, which connects a dual port connectx-5 nic to I40E .
Or does it require setting or flushing firmware with...
I've got a problem with Supermicro X11SCM-LN8F motherboard booting when I'm attaching PCI-E NIC card
StarTech.com ST2000PEXPSE. The boot stuck on ACPI Initialization (78). Is there something I need to change in BIOS setup?
I'm selling a bundle consisting of TWO QLogic BCM57810 dual port copper ethernet RJ45 NICs. They have driver support for Windows 10, Windows Server 2008/12/16, linux and VMware ESXi also. The cards are in a perfect working condition. But be aware that the fans are not the most silent...
my server has very poor networking speed when copieng files from a SMB share on the server to a client. The operating system is a freshly installed Windows Server 2016. The server uses a I350 T4 NIC and has two I210/I217 LM NICs onboard. The client runs on Windows 10 and has 2 I210 NICs...

the following StarTech 2-Port PCI Express 10GBase-T Ethernet Network Card - with Intel X540 Chip:

My very first post here
I was about to buy my first 10gb nic, during my researches I found out that there is almost no pcie gen3 dual sfp+ 10gb nic with x4 edge connector, as the bandwith provided by x4 gen 3 is enough for 40gbps full duplex, is there any reason(backward compatibility, etc)...
I bought a Dell Intel PRO/1000 VT Quad Port Ethernet NIC Adapter second hand from ebay, to go in my TS140, not thinking anything of it - but it turns out that they dropped support for Windows Server 2012 in this version, so I can't use it :| Not too impressed with them for that, not...
