Chapter 1: Introduction
1.1 Product Introduction
PCI Express is the next revolution in I/O interconnect standards
that will deliver the bandwidth and features required by PCs,
consumer
electronics
and
communications
devices.
The
architecture is a cost-effective, low-pin count, and point-to-point
technologies offering maximum bandwidth, reducing cost and
design complexity and enabling smaller form factors. This card is
the best solution for Gigabit Ethernet PCI Express and the
interface has a potential transfer rates of 2.5 Gbps using a
single-lane (or x1) PCI Express link.
This card is a 2-Port Gigabit Ethernet PCI Express Card, which is
specifically designed to plug into a desktop equipped with an
available x1, x4, x8 or x16 PCI Express slot. It supports high
performance
dual
channel
networking
and
full
duplex
communication to achieve up to 2000 Mbps and fast transfer
rates, yet is compatible with existing Ethernet. It comes with a
comprehensive of software drives for all desktop operating
systems, including Microsoft Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X.

Chapter 3: Troubleshooting Tips

The computer can NOT detect the 2-Port Gigabit Ethernet
PCIe Card
1.
Make sure that the PCI Express card is correctly
plugged into the PCI Express slot; if not, turn off the
computer and plug it again.
2.
If the PCI Express card is plugged in correctly, see if the
golden connectors on the card are clean; if not, clean
the connector surface.
3.
If still NOT, please change another PCI Express slot on
your motherboard.
4.
Please upgrade your motherboard BIOS to the latest
version. If it still not work, contact your motherboard
vendor asking the advanced supporting for BIOS
11
updated.
5.
The board itself might be defective. You can try another
motherboard testing 2-Port Gigabit Ethernet PCIe Card
working or not.

Computer failed to start after inserting the 2-Port Gigabit
Ethernet PCIe Card
Turn off the computer, remove the 2-Port Gigabit Ethernet PCIe
Card, and try to restart the computer. If the computer starts
successfully, it means that the card has not been inserted into the
PCI Express slot correctly. Please clean golden figure by rubber
firstly, then change another PCI Express slot.

If cannot use Gigabit Ethernet transfer speed
1.
Please affirm your Ethernet environment supporting
Gigabit structure.
2.
Please use CAT 6 UTP/STP cable.
