I needed a second NIC card for a new office PC to connect it to a panoramic digital x-ray. The PC I had was a Dell Vostro 230 Slim. It runs Windows 7 Pro 64-bit. After searching online sites for a while I found some good reviews for StarTech’s ST100SLP PCI NIC. One person said he put it in a PC and Windows 7 and Linux just recognized it. Since the card was cheap in price I went ahead and purchased it. I plugged it in a free PCI slot on the Dell and just like the reviewer said Windows 7 loaded a driver for it. The card is 10/100 and also comes with a full size bracket for normal size PCs. It available from online resellers such as Amazon,, and NewEgg.
