Compaq NIC Mirroring

Compaq NIC Mirroring


I want to be able to mirror two NIC's in a Compaq 1600. The NIC is integrated in the motherboard and i will purchase a Compaq NIC now. Is this possible and where can i find the drivers?

RE: Compaq NIC Mirroring

No this isn't possible. I called Compaq about this myself. It seems that the Chipset on the Imbedded NIC is different than all the other NIC's Compaq makes. As a result, Teaming with the Embedded is not possible.

RE: Compaq NIC Mirroring

Yeah, i've found out this too...

Will buy two equally NIC's to team them.

Thanks anyway for your response.

RE: Compaq NIC Mirroring

It depends on what the chipset of the embedded NIC is used. If it is netelligent embedded , buy a netelligent NIC. If it is Intel-based embedded, buy a Intel-based NIC. For your information, all new Compaq NIC will use Intel-based chipset.

As a result, it's possible to team up embedded NIC with an additional NIC.
