Some NICs offer integrated field-programmable gate arrays FPGAs for user-programmable processing of network traffic before it reaches the host computer, allowing for significantly reduced latencies in time-sensitive workloads. Newer server motherboards may have multiple network interfaces built-in. I did notice that there were lights yellow and orange so that is one positive sign I suppose: Retrieved October 11, I think I already know the answer to my question, but are there any other possible explanations, or is it dead?

The NIC allows computers to communicate over a computer network, either by using cables or wirelessly. Modern network interface controllers offer advanced features such as interrupt and DMA interfaces to the host processors, support for multiple receive and transmit queues, partitioning into multiple logical interfaces, and on-controller network traffic processing such as the TCP offload engine.

It is primarily used with high-speed network interfaces, such as Gigabit Ethernet and 10 Gigabit Ethernetfor which the processing overhead of the network stack becomes significant.


The NIC is both a physical layer and data link layer device, as it provides physical access to a networking medium and, for IEEE and similar networks, provides a low-level addressing system through the use of MAC addresses that are av331 assigned to network interfaces. I tried both of these and the led on the port does not light.
