    * network adapters


    i am managing my network with a linux box (iptables, vlans) + layer2 managed switch instead of layer3 switch.

    On my linux server, a regular onboard network card is working just fine but i am planning to upgrade it to better one.

    What would you recommend me?

    * Intel Pro/1000 PT Gigabit EXPI9404PTL Quad Ethernet
    * RB/4g 4 port 10/100/1000 Mbit PCI Ethernet (Mikrotik)

    or any other?

    I would like to build my own firewall/gateway server instead of paying thousands of dollars to cisco asa, juniper or etc.

    Thank you for posts in advance

    It's hard to go wrong with the Intel server adapters. One thing I like about them is how Intel publishes very detailed technical specifications for their ethernet chips.
