Hi guys,

Maybe someone has and don't need their working gigabit NIC?

I will accept it with huge gratitude for free, or $10?

I'm in AKL central, can drive to your office earlier morning or after 4pm.

or can pick up from your home :)

these used to be $10 and now pretty much not available from stores :(

my build in NIC after power cut a week ago, does not connect at full speed (only does 100mbit half duplex for some reason :()

Hey, have you listed a price, location and how much shipping would be to other parts of New Zealand? Also if you are asking for a PM make sure your Privacy settings allow your account to receive PM otherwise people can't contact you. Also note if you are selling something we ask you to offer to other members first. Links to private sales (including Trade Me posts) aren't accepted anymore and will be removed.

If no joy, you can grab one for $18.34

Can go to either

Physical address
1st Floor
105 Queen St
Auckland CBD


Auckland Uni
Physical address
Level 2
Kate Edger Information Commons
9 Symonds Street
Auckland CBD

Try reinstalling the network driver and see if that solves the problem.

Also look at investing in a cheap UPS to help protect your PC and network. Dynamix Defender or Cyber Power is good, APC is very good but expensive.
