The intel card gives you two things: Thread starter puma99dk Start date Oct 12, Used to be more of an issue before we had obscenely powerful processors like the k.

It’s probably a driver issue, I had the exact same problem.

Maybe when connected directly to the modem, maybe. If my motherboard would support it, it would have been interesting to see how much of an improvement I would have gotten if I put in 8GB of RAM. I set someone up eternet 2 of those per system a couple weeks back.

Not only is the CPU overhead lower noticeable browser responsivenessbut Intel chipsets have better physical layer SNR signal noise ratio. Sometimes discrete LAN cards can help with weak signal electrical strength happens when the cable is too long.

If anything, it won’t be significant. Oh and, comes with or without a heatsink depending on whether it’s dual or single port.

Realtek driver for RTL8168E/8111E and Windows 7 32bit

In reality your system is awesomely highend and about the only component that’s ‘stock’ is your network chip. Is the RTLE supported or do i need to compile the drivers beforehand?
