Joe,

 

What is the model # of your Intel dual nic card? TY

 

In the section NIC Installation in http://homeservershow.com/hp-microserver-n40l-build-and-bios-modification.html

 

I have a link to http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833106015 which works very well in the MicroServer.

 

I've also used http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833106121 which also works very well.

 

With both I've never had to go looking for drivers -- they work right from the start when the OS is loaded. They both should be on sale soon.

For me, that's an important feature. Searching for drivers is a real PITA.

True, Since I will be running Linux on it for the super router. Don't think the N40L has the guts to be used as a VM Host.

 

TY for the referrals!

Been using it as a Hyper-V host with no problem.

At the meet-up I had 4 VM's running on it: WHS-V1, WHS-2011, S2012E, and Ubuntu --- S2012SSstd was my Host.

I've also had 2008R2, S2012DC, S2012std, and Win8pro all running as Hyper-V Hosts with anywhere from 2 to 5 child partitions running on the N40L.

See SBS Diva's Play Box for HyperV
