D-Link DFE-520TX 10/100Mbps Fast Ethernet PCI Adapter
– 3 Years Warranty
PCI Bus Master Performance
Plugged into your PC’s PCI expansion bus, this network card
is automatically configured by the PC BIOS. Supporting 32-
bit Bus Master operation, the card provides a guaranteed
performance for your networked PC. Bus Master transfers
data directly between the card and the PC host, bypassing
your computer host CPU to alleviate its workload. This
allows your computer to concentrate on the application at
hand, instead of the network operation task.
802.3x Flow Control for Secure Transmission
In the fast 200Mbps full-duplex mode, the card’s embedded
flow control provides a means to protect your data against
possible loss during transmission on the network. When
connected to a LAN switch that supports flow control, the
card receives signals from the switch regarding buffer overrun
during peak usage periods. The card then delays transmission
until the switch is ready again to accept new data.
The card’s single RJ-45 connector connects to either
10BASE-T Ethernet or 100BASE-TX Fast Ethernet.
10/100Mbps speeds are auto-negotiated, completely without
your need to intervene.
