I have an embedded cpu controller with a PCI slot and a mini-PCI slot. If I use the PCI-slot I don't need to buy additional pigtail cables with chassis connectors.
However do PCI cards normally consume more power than mini-PCI ones..? This unit will run off solar power so I don't want to waste power ...
Also can any of you suggest good PCI / mini-PCI NIC models with *good* Linux driver support..?
thanks for any comment
