Description

The D-Link DGE-528T is a high-performance 10/100/1000Mbps copper Gigabit PCI card for desktop PC. Capable of running at full-duplex Gigabit speed, this card gives your PC 2000Mbps data transmission on your existing Cat. 5 twisted-pair network cable. As an inexpensive alternative solution to fiber-optic, the card allows you to instantly upgrade to Gigabit without requiring you to install new, expensive fiber cables. The card supports 10/100/1000Mbps network speed auto-sensing and full/half duplex auto-negotiation.

The card provides on-board screening of VLANs Tagged Ethernet frames, allowing your PC to be configured with VLAN-supported switch. Your PC can be part of a VLAN network, where domains are segmented up to enhance performance and security.

Wake-On-LAN (WOL) is an Advanced Configuration Power Interface (ACPI) function allowing a powered OFF computer to be powered ON from a remote station. This function allows the administrator to send wake-up signals to a computer. The WOL function provides a great utility for power management of the PC and allows users to initiate action at irregular times and from distant locations.

The card's embedded flow control and independent FIFO provide a means to protect against possible data loss during transmission on the network. When connected to a Gigabit switch supporting flow control, the card receives signals from the switch regarding buffer overrun during peak usage periods. The card then delays transmission until the switch is ready again to accept new data.

Using a single chip solution, this card is very small in size and consumes very little power of your computer system.

All ok with Win 7 64bit,LP bracket included, comes with small 3 core lead, no idea what this is for (WOL?), matching connector on top edge, Version 5 drivers included on CD, no use for Win 7, needs #6 from website http://tiny.cc/xj37l

Fine with Windows 2003 and Linux

I've had them working fine with both Windows 2003 and Linux (not tried XP yet.) If it's any help to others, you can use the r8169 module for Linux (on Debian Etch, anyway.) The supplied drivers (r1000) compiled for me after changing the start of line 387 in the source from MODULE_PARM to MODULE_PARM_DESC - found after a lot of looking around the Web.

Have just purchased one of these cards for our office to suit a Dell Dimension C521 with Vista Ultimate. It's a good system but didn't have an option for gigabit network interface card. Also, the C521 requires a low profile card - not an easy thing to find! Based on this page: http://www.edlug.org.uk/archive/Jan2007/msg00155.html I decided to take a chance and the NIC does indeed have a separate low profile plate in the box. One quick change later (just two screws) and I had the card installed. Vista got the drivers off the CD with no problems too! Great stuff.

Superb card

I bought 3 of these and their sexy looking 5 port gigabit hub last year, and have to say the performance is excellent in both windows and linux.

You have to install the driver yourself under windows, but any recent kernel in Linux should pick it up no problem at all.

I'm almost tempted to buy more, but then I'd need to buy another switch!

Incompatibility Issues with MacOS X
Reviewed by Anonymous Review Posted 08/12/2005

This card is specified as being MacOS compatible.

We installed the card on a Sawtooth G4 and a Quicksilver G4 both running MacOS X 10.3.9, it will not function on either machines leading us to believe it is not compatible with 10.3.
