Overview

Here’s a dependable and cost-effective way to add four high-performance Gigabit Ethernet ports to your server or desktop computer, through one PCI Express slot. 

Reliable network connectivity with high performance

This Gigabit Ethernet network card features the Intel® I350-AM4 chipset, designed to deliver the power, performance and enhanced capabilities you need for reliable network connections to your server or computer. The Intel chip provides a number of advanced driver options including IEEE 802.3ad link aggregation / teaming support, which enables you to add additional bandwidth to your system.

Compliant with IEEE 802.3/u/ab standards, the network card provides full support for high-performance, four-channel networking and maximum throughput up to 1000Mbps in each direction (2000 Mbps total) - up to ten times faster than 10/100 Ethernet. 

Cost-effective access to multiple networks

The quad-port Gigabit network card makes it easy to access multiple networks. It offers a cost-effective solution for IT professionals in government, educational, corporate, health care, or business environments where access to multiple networks from numerous workstations is needed. The server adapter card gives you four redundant, independent Gigabit Ethernet ports and it supports advanced features such as Jumbo Frames and VLAN tagging.

Enhanced versatility and efficiency

Compatible with a broad range of operating systems, this versatile PCIe Gigabit NIC is suitable for many business and enterprise applications - including virtualized environments with multiple operating systems, requiring multiple shared or dedicated NICs. The 4-port Gigabit network card is equipped with Intel® Virtualization Technology for Connectivity (Intel® VT-c) which reduces system latency and improves networking throughput. Four dedicated ports allow you to maximize your virtualized server’s networking efficiency and create a more agile data center.

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 is equipped with a full-sized bracket, and includes a low-profile/half-height installation bracket that you can use as needed.

The ST4000SPEXI is backed by a StarTech.com 2-year warranty and free lifetime technical support.

Applications

Easy access to multiple networks, ideal for government, education, health care, corporations or other high-end server applications

Add more network ports to a workstation or server for redundancy or virtualization

Ideal for desktop PC clients, servers and workstations with few PCI Express slots available

An effective replacement Ethernet network card for legacy equipment

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:
