Lan card recommendation? - Page 3

post #21 of 29
Thread Starter 
Everything I read says this NC380T does NOT work on a desktop PC, server only. It only has server OS drivers. How would I use it on my PC?

Would this be the driver to get? http://www.broadcom.com/support/ethernet_nic/netxtremeii.php

That driver will work perfectly, as the HP card is based on the Broadcom 5706 (NetXtreme II) chipset. This is the information page on the card's chipset: http://www.broadcom.com/collateral/pb/5706-PB04-R.pdf

Ok thanks. I hate ebay a lot and before I bother to buy anything im quadruple checking everything. I'm on w8 so of course the w7 driver will work no problem. Thanks, just making sure of everything.

Probably w8 will even install the driver for you, because that's what w7 did when I put it on a Poweredge 1950 (same chipset).

Also please post pics when you have that card in your mobo. Ive never seen it in an AMD one.

Sure thing. It may be a while though. I don't have the money for it right now, not on a virtual way at least.

Nice! Glad to see that it's working better than the integrated one on the motherboard.
