32-Bit Gigabit Ethernet Adapter


  • Product Status (Revision A): Live
The D-Link DGE-500T is a 32-bit PCI 10/100/1000Mbps NWay Gigabit LAN adapter. The DGE-500T provides extremely fast data transfer rates up to 1000Mbps for high bandwidth usage in areas such as network servers, data storage devices, and high-speed video conferencing in the home or office environments.

The DGE-500T is IEEE 802.3, IEEE 802.3u and IEEE 802.3z compliant. It is designed with the newest networking technologies such as Auto MDI-II/MDI-X crossover capabilities, and multicasting support to utilize network bandwidth more efficiently. The DGE-500T is 2.1 and 2.2 PCI compliant. The DGE-500T supports Full Duplex operation for 20/200/2000Mbps data rates and flow control.

The DGE-500T RJ-45 Ethernet port is designed to automatically detect a straight- through or a crossover Cat5 cable. The DGE-500T comes with a built-in 8 KB Transmit and 32 KB Receive data FIFOs. The DGE-500T supports Plug-and-Play installation and is compatible with Windows 98, ME, 2000, NT 4.0 Operating systems.
