Fast Ethernet Desktop PCI Adapter DFE-530TX

R 159


Add high-speed Fast Ethernet connectivity to any system with a PCI expansion slot.

  • One 100 Mbps Fast Ethernet port
  • Plug and play installation
  • Auto-negotiates port speed to 10 Mbps or 100 Mbps
  • 32-bit PCI Local Bus Master high-speed operation
  • Full/half-duplex operation

Powerful Performance

The adapter operates in the 32-bit Bus Master mode, delivering throughputs at multi-megabits per second with little stress on the host’s CPU. Supporting PCI clock speeds independently of the network clock, it transfers data directly to/from the host’s memory, by-passing the CPU to alleviate the host’s workload.

Full-Duplex Support

Full/half-duplex operation is auto-detected in both 10BASE-T and 100BASE-TX modes. When connected to a switch in full-duplex mode, the network speed can be increased to 200 Mbps, making the adapter an ideal NIC for high-speed server deployment. 

Comprehensive Driver Support

The adapter supports all major network operating systems, including NetWare, Windows and Linux, allowing for hassle-free installation on almost all systems.

Auto-sensing Speed

The adapter automatically configures its speed to be either 10BASE-T Ethernet or 100BASE-TX Fast Ethernet completely without any need to configure any settings. It detects the connected hub’s or switch’s capability and auto-negotiates to use the highest available speed.

Easy Migration

The adapter allows users to migrate from Ethernet to Fast Ethernet effortlessly. 10BASE-T users can upgrade to 100BASE-TX anytime without changing driver software or network cables.
