Consumer grade compatible NIC needed



  • Sorry for not doing my research but I'm kinda in a bind

    I've had a router fail and have to make an emergency box out of an i3 based pc with PCI-e slots

    I'm driving from bfe to Lexington Ky, if anyone has good experience with a NIC found at like a best buy or similar please let m know.

  • Thanks Frank  :)

    Well that was a fun day. Responses I got:
    Best Buy: "we have them on the website"
    Small shop #1: "what do you mean? Like hard line?"
    Small shop #2: "we carry intellinet"

    The intellinet actually worked, turns out it was a Realtek rtl8618b which wasn't recognized by BIOS until I set PCI-E to gen 1. Then I had to turn off the cards BIOS boot override

    Config restored reinstalling packages now. I hope someone down here buys me a beer  :P

    Shopping for a new box now
