FreeNAS server, first upgrade

In a system where all the components are pretty much worthless, it's difficult to know where to start. I decided on the initial upgrade of the network card.

Bought a NetGear GA311, gigabit PCI card for some 20 euros.

The product is fully supported in FreeNAS (see here).

Initial results are very good. The throughput increases with some 20% in upload. We're approaching 60mbit/s.

Original setup runs at 50 Mbit / sec.

Which is not bad considering we're talking about hardware that's practically garbage.

Upgrading the Ethernet card increases throughput to about 60 mpbs.
