i have this old 3c905-tx

it has a place to insert a chip? what is this for? can i still find it?


Are they any wifi ap's or ethernet cards that have swappable ddr or other types of ram?

I'd think it'd off-load alot of cpu cycles etc if windows didnt have to sort things out and it was available on card?

Games and media and large file transfers would be significantly faster..ping times may even drop drastically..

the socket is for an EPROM to allow you to boot form the network.

no memory on NICs

well unless it's a killernic xD

but this thing is like the killernic's great- great grand pa xD


just wondering man...i've noticed these linksys wifi ap's can use a considerable ammount of cpu time..at times

media and multitasking doesn't exactly max out the nic's but it still seems to struggle to sort through stuff..

i just thought it was a great idea and that someone would have thought of it by now.. currently windows / os's handle almost everything.. memory for it is also cpu load.. even for nics... it seems the added constant swapping out stuff is more taxing on the cpu/ram.. it'd make alot of sense these days to have atleast 1-2gigs of ddr1<5

wouldn't dvd-hd and blue ray play sooo much better?

so many things..

If i had a dual or quad core i'd give network processes it's own set of cores -.-
