Hi there,


I'm looking for a PCI gigabit NIC that is usable under Linux and has a fair amount of TCP offloading, the reason being I'm putting it into a low powered machine and don't want to completely swamp the CPU with work that could be done on the NIC itself.


It would be going into a MIPS based Cobalt Qube2 so it will need to be a small form factor board (no full length boards), I know the limitations of the Qube2 but I want to use it cause it's pretty :-)


Any suggestions ?


Thanks


Mark

Most intel adapters would be fine that use the e1000 module they can be be pricey for what they are though :) But you will usually find they work just nicely in linux and have tcp checksum offloading etc..
Take the Intel PWLA8391GT (chipset 82541PI) would work. It should be half height and reasonably short but might pay to check it comes with a half height back plate if you need it!
