    Intel EXPI9301CT 10/ 100/ 1000Mbps PCI-Express Gigabit CT Desktop Adapter. I have this nic card and it sure made a difference. The one nice thing it did was find that I had a bad cable. I never found that with anything else I had. With the new nic I got an extra 200Mbps and when it found the bad cable it gave me another 100Mbps. I just want to know if anyone has this card and how to tweak it. Man are there a lot of settings. I got two of them. One for each computer on the net. How does the master/slave work. There is also teaming. How do I use it and should I? If anyone has perfected any of these settings please help me out. Thanks.

    Please explain how you measured this extra speed?
    What do you connect your machine to - router / switch etc and what make / model?
    Do you have many computers or just one?
    What speed is your internet connection?

    cheers, Paul

    How fast was the connection before you changed NICs?
    What is the switch / router?
    Does it have 1Gb ports or 100Mb?

    cheers, Paul
