Whether you need to add more Gigabit Ethernet ports to your computer for improved performance and reliability or the ability to connect to more networks, get a Sonnet Presto Gigabit Server dual-port Gigabit Ethernet PCI-X adapter card for an advanced networking solution! This 64-bit, 133MHz, Intel Gigabit controller-based PCI-X card supports link aggregation on its own and with your computer's onboard Gigabit Ethernet ports and full duplex communication to achieve up to 2000 Mbps and faster transfer rates - the ideal solution for high-bandwidth data transfer requirements.
Presto Gigabit Ethernet Server also supports 9000 byte jumbo packet transfers (compared to 1500 byte standard packets) to support higher performance and reduced overhead when transferring large files. Should a cable get unplugged or a port fail, Presto Gigabit Server provides transparent failover protection, so your computer remains connected to the network. Presto Gigabit Server supports gigabit speeds over common CAT-5 cabling, so costly cable replacement is unnecessary.
