Whether you need to add more Gigabit Ethernet ports to your computer for improved performance and reliability or the ability to connect to more networks, get a Sonnet Presto Gigabit PCIe Server dual-port Gigabit Ethernet adapter card for PCI Express for an advanced networking solution!
Simple way to add Gigabit Ethernet connectivity to any compatible computer
Supports gigabit speeds on common CAT-5 cabling—no need for costly cable replacement
Supports link aggregation on its own and with onboard Gigabit Ethernet ports(1)
Supports transparent failover
PCI Express (PCIe) x4 host bus interface for maximum performance
Should a cable get unplugged or a port fail, Presto Gigabit Server PCIe provides transparent failover protection, so your computer remains connected to the network.
Presto Gigabit Server PCIe supports gigabit speeds over common CAT-5 cabling, so costly cable replacement is unnecessary. If your computer already has onboard Gigabit Ethernet, you can add a Presto Gigabit Server PCIe and use it for dedicated connection to a printer, AirPort® Extreme base station, DSL or cable modem, or a video server, while leaving your onboard Gigabit Ethernet port(s) available for other connections.
Presto Gigabit Server PCIe is compatible in Mac Pro®(2), and Power Mac® G5 & Xserve(3) & PCs and servers with a PCI Express (PCIe) slot. Offering simple configuration, this Sonnet card is easy to use, and its support for 1000/100/10BaseT auto-negotiation and full/half duplex communication enable it to be used in most networks.
