Hi Experts,

I am looking at the NIC below, but it leep saying Gigabit 10/100. I am not a network guy, but I thought Gigabit means 10/100/1000? Even the box sais Gigabit 10/100.

Thanks

Supports up to 1000 Mb = Gb. Hence the name Gigabit. (Of course it supports 10/100 Mb lower speeds also).

Hello,

The D-Link DGE-530T is a 10/100/1000Mbps copper Gigabit PCI card for servers and workstations. Current systems running at 10Mbps and 100Mbps can be upgraded to Gigabit Ethernet, eliminating network bottlenecks, and increasing productivity.

Sometimes, non-tech people and/or non-native english speakers can phrase things in ways that sound silly to those who know what they are talking about - Gigabit 10/100 would be an example of this.

Oftentimes, tech people and native English speakers use language to obfuscate.  ;-)

Hey, we are all alike -- like it or not.  :-)

the box sais Gigabit 10/100?  In the box, it should say 10/100/1000, not Gigabit 10/100...

I do not recall any description of Gigabit Ethernet using Gigabit 10/100...

What is exactly your problem?
