Customer Reviews of Linksys EG1032 Instant Gigabit Network Adapter
Linksys Instant Gigabit EG1032 Network Adapter3/1/2009
Very easy install. This got me connected more easily than the built in motherboard Network Adapter. I'm using Windows XP Pro. The driver on the installation CD worked fine on the first attempt. Works great for connecting to two LANs simultaneously.
Works fine with Vista10/25/2008
Even though the software drivers bundled with this NIC do not include Vista drivers, it works fine, as the drivers are included in Vista.
Great ethernet cards8/7/2007
Basically added them to the PC's and booted up. The systems(windows xp home edition) recoginzed them as 1 gigabit cards and utilized the added band width without updating drivers.
Linksys NIC - Version 3 is a BIG improvement!11/2/2006
I had an earlier model Linksys gigabit card in my PC which started to intermittently lose its network connection, especially on reboot. I decided to install a new card, and bought this latest Linksys NIC to replace it. The new card was an improved version 3, and it immediately corrected the problem and has great throughput on my home network. The price is very reasonable and the performance is top rate - buy one!
Answer to my slow network prayers10/3/2006
I purchased this Gig switch and NIC to speed up a network that handles a lot of word documents stored on a server. Before the upgrade my PC would sit and search with the moving flashlight anywhere from 30 seconds to more than a minute while the documents loaded. With the new Gig Switch and NIC it is almost instantly loaded. The amount of time I save is not nearly as important as the eliminated frustration of staring at that stupid little flashlight for up to 10 minutes a day. Due to supply, I also purchased a non Linksys gig NIC and the Linksys installation was much simpler.
