more NICs

I presently have a single 10/100 NIC in the server. I would like to increase the server's capacity to receive data from the network. I have switches that I can using trunking with, but bottleneck at the server. Or can I upgrade to a NIC accepting fiber cable, LX or GX? Just want to get the most I can out of the system until we upgrade everything next year.

Re: more NICs

You will have to check the Microsoft hardware compatibility list to find out what type and models of NICs have been tested and certified for the OS that is installed onto the system. The device being added must also be compatable with the EISA slots or the PCI slots that are in the Prosignia 300. Most of the newer and faster networking devices are for PCI slots only. These is only one PCI slot in the Prosignia 300 model. If the compatiable device is certified, then OS drivers are available. See the NT hardware compatibility list at this web address.
