ethernet card

Postby jayantee » 09.05.2012, 09:58

What ethernet card is compatible with the Compaq Presario 7360? I just got this really old computer and would like to install an ethernet card in it. I am wondering which cards are compatible or if there are any issues with some cards and this machine.

Hi Jayantee.

The ethernet card must fit the PCI slots on the motherboard.
And you must be sure that the ethernet cards driver support the operating system that you run on this old pc.

Examples of good alround PCI slot ethernet cards are:
3Com EtherLink 10/100 PCI NIC (3C905-TX)
Intel PRO/100 M Desktop Adapter

Or you can gor for a 1000Mbit card:
Intel PRO/1000 GT Desktop Adapter.

You can allways have issues, but when you stick with good brands it usually works fine.
