Anyone in town have a PCI Nic I could have or buy that works with esxi 5.x?
If not, could you point me at something that is compatible newegg?
Seems all the NICs i have laying around dont work with 5.5.

Just trying to get some use out of an older desktop.

=============================================================== From: Matt Keys ------------------------------------------------------ You'd have to check the compatability list against these but I've always had good luck with Intel NICs. Here's a newegg filter for wired, PCI, Intel : http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=100010064%2050001157%20600016289&IsNodeId=1&name=Intel
