Re: 100mbit nic: intel or 3com?


IMHO (and this might get me flamed), 3com. I have tried a lot of other cards 
and I have found that 3com's are well supported (by both linux and doze) and 
just seem to keep running. 3com's are usually more expensive then the others, 
but I feel the extra cost is worth having less aggravation.
