    Reliable GBit NIC with Jumbo frame support Windows 10


    I just had a wasted afternoon trying to install a TP-Link TG-3468 (Realtek 8168E) NIC on my W10 x64 system on a Dell Precision 690. Basically the whole thing either froze of bombed out with a WHEA Uncorrectable Error BSOD (even when trying to boot in Safe mode) during boot, so no opportunity to load any drivers that actually worked (if there even are any) . I had two of these cards, both behaved the same.

    So can anyone suggest a reasonably priced PCI-e Gigabit NIC that'll actually work on W10 x64 and that has Jumbo Frame support (MTU 7000 at least).

    (hoping that this isn't a problem with the PCI-e support in the Dell Precision 690).

    Thanks, Dave

    Why do you need that MTU as most routers use 1500
