    Default Dlink DGE-530T

    Good morning,
    I just purchased this NIC as I needed a gigabit NIC for my external as Bell Fibre is finally in my area.
    https://www.newegg.ca/Product/Produc...16833127134CVF
    what are the chances this is just going to be plug and play?
    Thanks,

    Jason Pichie

    Should work, but be aware that dlink sells a lot of nics with the same model number and different chips. Marvell and Realtek.

    For best performance and reliability use Intel nics and, if possible, avoid PCI cards.

    Tirso,
    thanks for the reply.
    Due to the age of my equipment, I had to go the PCI route, but I will keep that in mind for the future.
    I do generally go with Intel, but this DLink was half the price, and showed up on the "approved list" from 2014, fingers crossed
    Thanks

    Next time try an old but reliable Intel pro GT or even the MT from ebay.

    There are four hardware revisions of that card, each with DIFFERENT DRIVERS.

    I'd not touch this thing with a 10 foot pole.

    good evening,
    so it did not work right out of the box (DGE-530T), and when I put in my working 100mb card, the network was still pooched...
    For now, my untangle appliance is not running on my network, I am just running on my Bell modem/router.

    The gigabit card I bought is the DGE-530T REV.D2. It is running an RTL8169SC chip. To your knowledge, is this chip compatible?
    Is it worthwhile for me to do a fresh install to see if it recognizes it any differently (this box has been running for atleast 5 years since last fresh install).
    I will be working on my UT box tomorrow, any advice is appreciated.
    Thanks

    I did my fresh install this morning.
    I did it from work so no network cables were plugged in yet, is it okay if it shows as unknown?

    Both my NICs did display and it let me set them up.
    Thanks

    Just wanted to confirm for everyone that both my NICs are working after the fresh install.
    I have an RTL8110 onboard gigabit and RTL8169SC PCI card.
    I rigged something quickly at work with DHCP and all is well.
    Thanks for being my sounding board.
