I need a PCI (not PCI-e) card that will work with WHS RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have installed WHS on my computer but none of the network cards I have will work with it.  I tried to purchase a nec card that is listed in WHS but they all seem to be outdated.  Can someone tell me the name of an inexpensive PCI (not PCI-e) nic I can purchase for my server - thank you!!!

    There is (as I recall, I don't have a server running that card in-house ATM) no in-box driver support for that NIC. But you can easily install solid Windows Server 2003 drivers for it, so it's a non-issue.

  • I like Intel NICs, like this one.

  • Have you used this nic in a WHS?  Also this is a low profile card - does it come in a standard hight?

  • That NIC is available in both low profile and standard height versions (as you could learn for yourself at the cost of a couple of mouse clicks on the NewEgg web site), and yes I've used it in servers.

    No need to be rude - I was just asking....

     and yes I've used it in servers.

    but I was inquiring specifically about WHS as there seems to be limited support out there - but please don't answer - I don't like rudeness.
