    igb vs e1000

      Our new MWG5000 came with 2 types of interfaces, igb and e1000.  Does anyone know the difference between the 2 and is one preferred over the other?

       

      Thanks.

          Hello,

           

          it should not make any different which NIC you are using. Both are 1GBit/s network interfaces, just using a different chip/driver. For the operating system/application they are identical. I would use them in their order, using eth0 first, then eth1, etc, not caring for the type.

           

          Best,

          Andre
