This single-port 2.5Gbps PCIe network card offers a versatile and low-cost way to deploy 2.5GbE network connectivity. It adds one copper Ethernet port to your server or desktop computer and provides Multi-Gigabit Ethernet access to your network at four speeds: 2.5 Gbps, 1G, 100Mbps, 10Mbps.
Cost-Effective Multi-Gigabit Ethernet Solution
The 2.5GBASE-T NIC provides additional bandwidth using your existing Ethernet infrastructure to help reduce the cost of cabling upgrades. The card enables you to connect to 2.5GBASE-T and NBASE-T equipment at network speeds of 10Mbps, 100Mbps, 1Gbps, 2.5Gbps over your CAT5e cabling (up to 100 m depending on the network configuration).
Optimal Technology for Optimal Performance
The network adapter card adds one Ethernet port to your workstation through a x1 PCIe slot. It features 2.5GBASE-T technology, supporting advanced Multi-Gigabit systems, including Cisco campus switches and Aruba Networks access points. The network card also supports NBASE-T and additional features including 16K Jumbo Frames, Auto-MDIX and Wake-on-LAN (WoL).
The Realtek RTL8125 chipset, compliant with IEEE 802.3az and IEEE802.3u supports the PCIe 2.0 interface for PC embedded applications. It provides up to a 250% increase in data rate over Gigabit Ethernet and requires no changes to existing cable infrastructure.
The ST2GPEX is backed by a StarTech.com 2-year warranty and free lifetime technical support.

What happens after I've placed an order?
Once you place an order with us you'll receive an email confirmation listing all your items ordered. You should keep this email for future reference as it also acts as your invoice. We then start to process your order; the order is transmitted to our paperless production facility, built, checked for quality, handed to our installation engineers who then proceed with setup of any software you've ordered, then run through our burn-in and stability tests, checked once more for quality and finally it's handed to our dispatch department who will pack the order and book it in for delivery. Depending on how busy we are this entire process takes around 3-5 working days.
