I am building a few ClearOS boxes, and am trying to use components I have available without purchasing anything (yet) if possible.
I have some 3com 3C905-TX cards, a 3C SOHO-100, some 3C905B-TX cards, some 3C905CX-TX-M then some other generic cards, for examples, some with a chipset of "RTL8169S-32", and some others.
Is there a writeup out there comparing cards in general, or other information I can refer to? Or any thoughts you have on which ones I should use - or if they are all junk, thats helpful too!
So, if they are too old / junk, what should I be looking for in a card - features / technology to know if a card is good for performance vs. being just an average/junk card?
