    i have 1 single PCIe slot and need a single multiport NIC to do WAN and LAN. what NICs can i use to achieve this? i wanted to use quality NIC like say Intel and not Realtek. could be 1gb or 10gb even SFP+ might be fine.

    Just ordered this one for my next Untangle setup. One of the customer reviews stated that it works great with Untangle.

    Form what I gather, you are limited/bottlenecked by your available PCIe slots.

    Typically, single and dual gigabit NICs just needs a PCIe 2.0 x1 slot.
    Quad-gigabit and single 10-gigabit NIC requires at least PCIe 2.0 x4 slot.
    Dual 10-gigabit NICs requires a PCIe 3.0 x4 or PCIe 2.0 x8 slot.
