It delivers up to 10 Gbps network connectivity speed through 100m of Cat 6a cabling or up to 5Gbps on legacy Cat 5e or Cat 6 cabling.
This card supports auto-negotiation allowing the NBASE-T solution to optimally select the best speed: 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE), 5 Gigabit Ethernet (5GbE), 2.5 Gigabit Ethernet (2.5GbE), 1 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) or 100 Megabit Ethernet (100MbE) over Cat5e/Cat6 or better cabling.

Rating: 5/5 Bought for future-proofing. November 5, 2021 So, I bought this for future-proofing purposes, and I’ve certified that it works, but I don’t actually have 10Gb Ethernet in my house yet. ($1,000 for a switch?? Get out of here!!) so I assume it functions well at 10Gb, but I don’t actually know.

I would recommend this item to a friend!
