Solved!

What Intel Gigabit PCI-e x16 Card can I add to HP Slimline Desktop - 410-01

HP Recommended
HP Slimline Desktop - 410-01
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I would like to add a Dual or Four Port Intel Gigabit PCI-e x16 ethernet card to my HP Slimline Desktop - 410-01. My plan is to convert this into a Pfsense Router/Firewall, etc. Pfsense is much more reliable with Intel Network Cards. I would also need to disable the onboard RealTek Ethernet adapter.

 

I would greatly appreciate any recommendations and credible sources (want to avoid the fake cards out there).

 

TIA

Thank you for the additional information, @Jules-C!  This is perfect!

 

I did some checking to assure I got the best card for you.  Here are two that were recommended by StarTech:

ST4000SPEXI for 4 ports or a ST2000SPEXI for 2 ports.  They are commercial grade.  StarTech makes very high quality products.

 

If you don't want to buy from StarTech, I suggest that you find a manufacturer of your choice and contact their Tech Support for help with finding the best card for your system.  They are the Experts on their products.

@Jules-C , welcome to the Community.

 

What is the Product Number of the computer? I need this information to review the specifications of it. Please don't furnish the Serial # or other personal information. You can find the Product Number at the bottom of the page when you open HP Support Assistant.
