Overview

Boost the performance and capabilities of your server or desktop computer by adding a Gigabit Ethernet port through a PCI Express slot. This GbE (Gigabit Ethernet) network card makes it easy to create a high-performance, cost-effective networking solution.

The performance and reliability you demand in network connectivity

This PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet card utilizes the Intel® I210-AT chipset, delivering the power, performance and enhanced capabilities you need for dependable network connections to your server or computer. Compliant with IEEE 802.3/u/ab standards, the GbE network card provides an effective upgrade or replacement network port, with a maximum throughput of up to 1000Mbps in each direction (2000 Mbps total) - up to ten times faster than 10/100 Ethernet. 

The I210 chipset provides many advanced features to support load-balancing the flow of network traffic, to enhance throughput and provide greater data reliability. It also supports Audio-Video Bridging (AVB) to enable tightly controlled media stream synchronization, buffering and resource reservation.

A versatile and cost-effective solution

Compatible with a broad range of operating systems, this versatile PCIe Gigabit NIC is ideal for many business applications requiring servers or workstation upgrades. It’s a cost-effective way to upgrade your server or computer from a 10/100 Ethernet port to a Gigabit Ethernet port, or add an Ethernet port to take advantage of advanced features such as VLAN tagging, Jumbo Frames, Wake-On-LAN and Auto MDIX.

Easy installation

With a dual-profile design, the PCI Express network card installs easily into a wide range of computer/server chassis, regardless of form factor. The card comes equipped with a full-sized bracket, and includes a low-profile/half-height installation bracket that you can use as needed.

The ST1000SPEXI is backed by a StarTech.com 2-year warranty and free lifetime technical support.

Applications

Upgrades to servers or workstations in need of enhanced performance, advanced features and greater reliability

Upgrade a 10/100 Ethernet port on your computer to GbE network capability

Add GbE networking capabilities to an old system that doesn't have an Ethernet port

Add an additional Ethernet port to a workstation or server computer for redundancy

Troubleshooting

When you troubleshoot issues with a network adapter, there are some quick tests that you can complete to rule out potential problems. You can test to make sure that the following components are working correctly and are not the source of the issue:

  • Ethernet cables
  • Network devices
  • Computer system

To test your setup components, try the following:

  • Use the Ethernet cables, network devices, and computer system in another setup to see if the problem is with the components or the setup.
  • Use different Ethernet cables, network devices, and a different computer system in your setup to see if the problem persists. Ideally, you should test a component that you know works in another setup.

When you test your cables, it is recommended that you do the following:

  • Test each cable individually.
  • Use short cables when you are testing.

When you test the Ethernet cables, network devices, and computer system, it is recommended that you do the following:
