I'm trying to find an NIC that can handle a high PCI bus... the one I have now can only handle a 38 mhz pci bus so I'm looking for something higher.

Here's mine:

Netgear FA310TX Fast Ethernet Adapter

Pci Bus: 38Mhz... craps out at 39+ Mhz

Please list what you've got and you bus speed.
3Com 10/100 /w3XP (3CR990-TX-97)

Ive had it as high as 48mhz pci, but promptly backed it down for fear of corrupting my hdd :p
Yeah I've got a couple of Cnet "Ethermedia" Realtek based PCI NICs running on 41.5Mhz buses no problems. Had them going a year. They only cost peanuts too, running them with a Cnet hub, no probs with that either. They come with a "lifetime" warranty and a 99.98% uptime guarantee, whatever that mean. I just took it as "A shade or two better than crap" :D

Seriously though, I'm quite impressed with them.

SMC craps out at anything over 38mhz. I have since switched to Linksys. I have had it to over 45mhz with no hitches.
