VIA Rhine II Fast Ethernet adapter

by hpinvent / August 13, 2005 6:23 AM PDT

Is that a good adapter? If not what are some good ones? What does it do? Do it pose to increase the speed of your internet? Do you need it with Broadband? And I also have 1394 Net Adapter. Is that a good adapter?

Network adapters.....

have more or less reached a state of equality at the consumer level. The Via Rhine II is one I have found integrated into many motherboards I have used. The simple answer is it works as planned.

Your firewire adapter (1394), should not be used in place of your ethernet adapter. Ethernet was designed for this purpose.

Note that the reason your post has likely been unanswered, is because of the nature of the forum where you posted. Hardware or Networking would have been a better choice.
