In the meantime, someone answered me at Network Engineering SE It seems like the Intel 82580 network controller supports this. It is e.g. contained in the Intel I340 server adapter family.

You're not going to find one. USB and PCIe are two very different technologies supported by the PCH (Platform Controller Hub) in the chipset of your PC/Server. The I/O portion of the PCH supplies both PCIe and USB interfaces to the system. However, PCIe being an expansion bus allows you add additional USB controllers to the system; the USB interface doesn'...

I've used 3 different flavours of Ethernet over power. Apparently it's seriously dependant on your household power line quality, and other devices. Once I got it dialed in (and got slightly newer models than my homeplug AV 200 units), its fast and more importantly very reliable. More expensive adaptors support newer 'faster' standards, and practically ...

From a pure numbers standpoint, the Hiro's 5dBi antenna beats the Panda's 2dBi antenna, and both beat the Netgear's tiny on-board antenna, so it's likely the Hiro will give you the best reception of the three. You don't specify your budget, but it looks like about $20-ish. If you're willing to go up to $30, the Alfa AWUS036NH has a powerful transmitter ...

I have used Devolo dLAN 200AVs extensively in my UK home for about five years now, and they are great. I have about six of them, all single Ethernet port (multiport versions, which three Ethernet ports, are available). I have not found this to be a problem, because I have switches/hubs in most rooms, anyway. They have UK plugs, not US plugs, but none of ...

OK, three part answers: I am unaware of SPF(+) to copper interfaces. That does not mean that they do not exits. If they do exist then compatability is not a guarantee, so a call to HP is probably a good idea. If only to get an article number to search further on, since I expect the HP price to be 'not low'. Based on the goal that you just need two ...

I have successfully ran a small office network using a MikroTik Hex. It's a decent router, with good software, good management solutions and support for VPNs. We recently switched to a bigger one mostly because we needed more ports. The downside to MikroTik is their high learning curve - the first time it took me the whole day to set up. If you want ...

Null Byte, via WonderHowTo, has a nice article on the best wireless adapters for Kali Linux. Here are the listed compatible chipsets: Atheros AR9271 Ralink RT3070 Ralink RT3572 Realtek 8187L (Wireless G adapters) Realtek RTL8812AU (newly in 2017) my research also suggests the Ralink RT5370N is compatible You can find direct purchase links ...

The option A (Formula) is more interesting (and less expensive) since we got: the 5Gbit LAN (~90 EUR for a NIC) the mosfet watercooling (~50-100 EUR for the waterblocks) both for about 100 EUR instead of 140-190 EUR. more 4 PCIE lanes, available for instance for another NVMe Switching to Skylake-X is interesting when: latency+speed host-device is ...

Basically all routers where you can install open source firmware (OpenWRT, Tomato, ...) will be able to do this. However, you'll need some familiarity with Linux to set this up (or you need to know someone who does). University networks use EAP (as shown), and wpa_supplicant which is the standard WPA authorization client supports this, given the correct ...

With DD-WRT, anything is possible! Try a live demo here. Note that the demo is outdated and many features have been disabled on it. DD-WRT is a custom firmware available for a variety of routers that adds many additional features such as supporting multiple different wireless networks connected to different vlans, hosting a VPN server, and much, much more! ...

Another possible option: the TL-WN951n also seems to meet these requirements. Unconfirmed on Windows 10 but there's a windows 8 driver for it that might be compatible.

I can see only one option: The Linksys WMP600N. It's capable of operating on the 5ghz band with N technology though it's not going to get the speed boost from that capability - although the interface does seem to be capable of it, the controller isn't. Then again you just need it to get on the 5ghz band, so you're good. The last problem for you to ...

Was looking at this also, found a USB NIC from Cypress, http://www.cypress.com/products/ez-usb-gx3-superspeed-usb-30-gigabit-ethernet-controller . In the datasheet it says Supports IEEE 802.1Q VLAN tagging and 2 VLAN ID filtering; received VLAN Tag (4 bytes) can be stripped off or preserved So assuming there is a dongle using this chip and that the ...

I'd suggest also looking for new or second hand Chelsio cards (T420-CR/T520-CR for optic OM2 LC SFP+ format, or other formats available, see their website) - they are quite frequent and cheap (well, as cheap as 10G goes) as used items on EBay, and very highly recommended - both pfSense and FreeNAS projects recommend them above Intel for 10GbE networks (as ...
