Windows 10: Best NIC card for Windows 10 - low latency and affordable

    Best NIC card for Windows 10 - low latency and affordable


    Any thoughts on the best affordable NIC card that works well with Windows 10 and has low latency?

    Running an audio over iP system at our radio station and are having some problems with the NIC cards we currently have with Windows 10 - apparently they (Intel CT model) are not supported by Windows 10.

    Thanks!

    This turns out to be a more interesting question than I thought it might be, in this day and age when most people don't buy discrete network interface cards (NICs) very often. Try this Newegg search for some PCI-E NIC ideas, or check out these USB 3.0 options instead. I keep the number 1 item on the latter (the StarTech USB 3.0 to GbE adapter) around all the time because it helps me overcome "temporary loss of Ethernet" when an update knocks the built-in NIC out of action.

    A new network card is not going to solve issues when streaming from a website, especially local or remote radio stations. The issue is with the station making the stream at a low quality to keep people from recording and posting the the streams to Torrents. Also you have to take into account who you are using as an ISP and who they are using, etc..

    Suggest you contact the radio station about quality issues.
