Dell/HP NICs

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Does anyone know if Dell/HP disables their NICs from operating on 3rd party hardware?

For example: http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Document.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&taskId=120&prodSeriesId=1155257&prodTypeId=329290&objectID=c00678930

I mean these are 2x 1GbE PCIe NIC with TOE for like $10 each on eBay.

They're just NICs. As long as you can install the drivers, they should work.

You would think. smile.gif

+ I have a Lenovo ThinkPad that will not work with WiFi adapters without being on the motherboard's BIOS's whitelist. Even though the Intel NICs are exactly the same one as Lenovo sells.
+ I know some Dell RAID cards will only work with certain HDDs.


I just wanted to make sure.

I understand. I combed over the manual and found nothing saying it wouldn't work with anything other than Proliant servers.

They're only $10 each. I'd say buy one to try it out. If it doesn't work, you didn't lose much...
