What Dual NIC to get?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi guys,

 

i want to get a dual NIC, because i got two seperate internet connections which i want to be able access from the same PC.

 

I'm fairly new to load balancing / teaming on Windows 7.

 

In my search on amazon i've found the Intel Pro1000PT and the Intel E1G42ET both versions with dual nic and i have no idea which one of them is the better one.

 

I would like tips for the setup, a recommendation for the BEST dual nic on the market and a recommendation for the "best bang for the buck" dual nic.

I have a few Pro 1000 PTs, haven't used the E1G42ET yet.

You can find them for cheap on Ebay.
