Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Love this NIC. This was my final try in getting an Ethernet Adapter to work with ESXi Free Edition, on my Workstation.
We have tried many so-called compatible cards and mini Driver Injections (the injections worked, the drivers + other cards, did not). The toughest part is how Realtek (sp?) has flooded the market and so-many manufacturers are using some RT chipset. Many of the Intel's appear to be knock-offs and there is a huge difference between compatibility vs having the "built-in" drivers (something ESXi no longer does well).
This adapter worked something like this.
- Powered off machine - Removed old adapter - Installed new adapter - Booted Default ESXi 6.0.0 up from USB, no modifications, card was found and bound perfectly, 1st try, no extra anything was required!
I bought about 20 of these. Never had an issue.
