    Default PCIE Ethernet Card For Mac Pro

    HI Guys, It's been a while since I have been on! great to see my account still works!


    I'm looking for a Multi port (Preferably 6) PCIE Ethernet card for a Mac Pro. Anyone have any cheap and cheerful suggestions that are mac compatible? With the exception Small Tree cards?

    Thanks

    Welcome Back! Nice to see you again (so to speak)

    Rick has several options but they seem pricey to me. Sorry I can't help further but I sent Rick an annoyance to get his attention to this post. He might have a better solution...
    Damien,

    Hi Greentree, long time. I saw the post, did some research and didn't find a thing in a Giga card other than Startech.

    The cards MacGurus carries are all 10G Ethernet. They scream - over 700 MB/sec! Mostly for media shops sharing big fat storage RAIDs to their edit stations.

    The only cards I am aware of with more than 2 ethernet ports are from small tree. I see 4 ports here....but never used a pci card from these guys. No idea how good it is, nor what kind of driver support one might expect.
