What sort of NIC card for a T600

 

What sort of NIC card for a T600

We have a T600 installed that is currently using a lanmux to connect to the network.

We have room for a half height card.

What sort of NIC card should we be investigating? We would like to have 10/100 full/half duplex capabilities.

TIA

Re: What sort of NIC card for a T600

You are really limited in choices. If you have an HSC slot then J3514A is your boy. If you have only HP-PB slots left then A3495A is the only choice and it is a half-height.
If it ain't broke, I can fix that.

Thanks Clay...
Now all I have to do is to find out what sort of slots I have left. I know that there is only one and it is not full height.

Re: What sort of NIC card for a T600

given that half versus full height was a property only of HP-PB (aka NIO) slots, dollars to doughnuts, what you have open is an HP-PB slot.

there is (or at least was) an HP-PB 10/100BT interface on the CPL. It wasn't exactly a barnburner - with a tail-wind and enough CPU benhind it, it might be a 50 Mbit/s NIC.

Then again, I don't recall the HSC 100BT NIC being a barnburner in a T600 either, but then that goes back a looong way for my dimm memory.

If you buy either of those from sources other than HP, and even then, make sure you get the drivers too - on 10.20 at least, those drivers were _not_ part of the core OS - they were on DARTs.

According to a Configuration Guide of 11/98:
802.3 LAN: J2146A
802.5 Token Ring: J2166A

Both use a single HP-PB slot.

But according to the guide you should exceed 10 lan connections.
Every problem has at least one solution. Only some solutions are harder to find.
