Re: [PLUG] Need 3 Intel Ethernet Cards in Philly today

Not that it matters much but here you go.

We were setting up a transparent firewall using PFSense.

the 3Com Cards failed, the RealTek cards failed (even after we added  
the modules for aforementioned...)

The Intel Nics - worked like a charm.

sometimes going w/ what the mfg suggests is just smart.
